Important brake repair and maintenance tips (Part 2)

In part 1 of our series on brake repair and maintenance, we discusses how different car manufacturers use varying specifications for each model, and how that affects the consumer when it’s time to buy new brakes. As a result, some manufacturers out there cut corners when it comes to safety. Remember, as of yet there are no laws on the federal level regulating brake specifications. While these cheaper brakes may perform well under normal driving conditions, they do not take into account the difficulties drivers may encounter, like having to start and stop all the time; we have discussed earlier how New York’s driving and road conditions are severe.

Again, we would like to point out how we at 106St Tire & Wheel are proud to offer NAPA brakes because we know that they do the best to keep you and your passengers safe on the road.

New Drivers are taught the tips and tricks of the rules of the road in general, how to avoid accidents, safely correct mistakes, and how to manipulate the vehicle with caution if they should experience a dreaded breakdown of car function (especially in older vehicles). On the other hand, experienced drivers have just that; they have had the time to develop the driving skills and connection with their vehicle as to keep them both in one piece. Both types of drivers are on the roadways each day, and both can make mistakes. However, brake repair ensures your ability to stop the vehicle.

And most importantly, don't forget to schedule an appointment with us to take a look at your brakes.
