Well-maintained brakes are crucial for the safety of your vehicle. There are three primary components of the braking system--the brake caliper, brake pads, and brake rotors. Not only does the quality of these brake components affect how long your brakes last, but your driving style also plays a big role in how long your brakes last. The way you drive (and brake) can help extend the lifespan of your brakes so that you are not facing a costly brake replacement.

These five easy tips on how to take care of your brakes don't take much money, but could save you $$$ in brake repair:

  1. Coast when you can—The harder you brake, the more pressure and wear it puts on the brake pads. Coast when you can to reduce your speed before applying the brake pedal.
  2. Lookout—Look well into the distance and anticipate braking before you need to stop. This gives you time to coast and lets your speed drop before braking.
  3. Lighten the load—Driving with excess weight in the car could dramatically reduce the lifespan of your brake pads. Take all unnecessary items out of your car and trunk.
  4. Plan ahead—Give yourself enough time for the journey so you don’t have to be in a hurry while driving. Rapidly accelerating and decelerating adds a strain on your brakes and doesn’t really save much time.
  5. Regular brake service—Regular brake service will help your mechanic find small issues and take care of them before they turn into bigger problems. A few dollars spent now could save you big bugs on a premature brake replacement.
