What Are Brakes Used for on Your Car?

No matter what type of vehicle you are driving, the existence of brakes is imperative. Sure, physics says that your vehicle will eventually stop, but as a driver, you need to be able to stop on command. Without that ability, you are driving an uncontrolled weapon. There are too many other people in this world to allow you to drive like that.

Brakes are used in a vehicle to slow it down or to stop it. If you look at your owner’s manual, you will find the distance required to stop your vehicle while traveling at 60 mpg. These results are based on extensive tests of a brake system that is in perfect running order. Wear, time, and debris in the brake line will extend the distance required to stop.

To assure your brake system is in good working order, come to our service center here at Jones West Ford in Reno, NV.
