Understanding Proper Auto Brake Care

Automotive Brake Basics

It’s impressive when vehicles can sprint from zero to 60 mph in just a few seconds. However, what’s even more important is to be able to get back to a standstill at high speeds. A car’s brake system relies on a variety of different components to work correctly and slow your car to a stop. Typically, there are two main brake systems a vehicle can have: disc or drum. Each reaches the same end goal but operates slightly differently and contains different pieces. Engaging the brake pedal sets in motion a complex series of movements that involve a master cylinder, brake lines, disc or drum brakes, brake pads, brake rotors, and more. The effort to stop a vehicle puts strain and wear on many of these components, which is why regular brake care is necessary.
