slide 1:

How to Increase the Average Life of Car Brakes Using proper braking technique: When youre stopping at lights and intersections it is healthier for the brakes to come to a complete stop rather than allowing the wheels to inch forward. This wheel creep means the wheels are under constant friction breaking the wheels further and stopping the car completely will generally put less wear on the brakes. On the topic of braking its also good to commit to only using your right foot for braking and gas alike. Nothing wears out brakes unnecessarily like applying pressure to both pedals simultaneously while this doesnt have any practical benefits to the car or driver.

Change Your Brake Fluid: To extend the longevity of your brakes it is crucial to periodically change your vehicle’s brake fluid. Older cars especially benefit from this simple act of auto maintenance as older vehicles tend to have more corrosive interiors and typically go longer without having their fluid replaced.

Making brake-conscious car decisions: Regardless of a drivers braking habits the overall strain can be generally lessened if you lighten the load of a car. Taking out unnecessary luggage will result in less friction for the brakes. Although it may sound like an obvious fact the life of brakes can be extended by minimizing their use. Although you definitely shouldnt be frugal with braking while youre out driving you may be able to plan your car trips accordingly favoring routes with less congestion and fewer intersections. Brakes should be regularly maintained to improve their longevity. You should get your brake fluid regularly changed. Maintaining your parts is important across the board but it should be noted that the quality of parts has a big effect on longevity. It should also be noted that most of the things you can do to minimize brake wear will also improve your vehicles fuel efficiency Smooth driving and soft braking: Braking at higher speeds places an increasingly disproportionate strain on the brakes. As a general rule if you need to brake at high speeds outside of emergency situations youre probably going too fast or

stepping on the gas for too long. Regulating your speed and softly braking can ease off the strain on your brakes doing this also has the effect of resulting in a smoother ride for you and your passengers. Hard braking should only be used in emergency situations and split-second decisions.
