We’re always looking for ways to increase our brakes’ life. Eventually, they will wear down or falter and it is not something we like to think about until it is almost too late. But there are ways to extend your brake life that could end up saving you some much needed time in the long run.

Safe Driving Saves Brakes. The most common way to save your brake pads might also be the most obvious. Maintain safe driving practices and you’ll maintain healthy brakes for longer. Use practices like keeping a safe driving distance, three seconds behind any object in front of you, in order to maintain healthy braking habits. Quick stops and jarring brake habits can absolutely destroy your brake pads. But by keeping safe driving habits in mind and adhering to a more cautious driving style, you can save your brakesfrom an early replacement.

Use Correct Braking Practices In Steep Areas. If you live in or are visiting an area with steep roads, such as the mountains, here are two specific tips you should know. If you are driving downhill on dry roads, drive in a lower gear. Then apply your brakes with light pressure as your car begins to speed up, maintaining a constant speed. By doing this, you are balancing engine braking and pumping your brakes. This allows your brakes to cool down. Riding your brakes straight down a steep hill generates friction. This practice cuts down on that friction and wear slightly. But there are certain conditions where you would not want to use this method. If you are driving down an icy or slick road, use light, consistent pressure on your brakes and keep double the distance between yourself and the car in front of you. This allows your antilock brakes to kick in if you lose traction and gives you enough room to be safely away from bumping into vehicles in front of you.

Plan Accordingly. Similar to the first tip, slowing down and building up habits of not slamming on the brakes at sharp corners, stop signs, and turns allows the engine to do the heavy lifting and keeps strain off your brakes. This allows for a longer, healthier lifespan for your brake pads.

Now if your brakes do need replacing or repair, that’s not a problem. Just call Brakes On The Go NJ and we’ll schedule an appointment that’s convenient for you in Central New Jersey, to quickly and safely you get back on the road!

There are quite a few signs out there that can let you know that there are problems with your brakes. It also helps to know these signs because they can clue you in to just how serious those problems might be. Here are a few helpful signs to take notice of the next time they happen to your vehicle.

Foul Odor. If you smell a pungent, burning odor in your car, it could be excess oil burning after an oil change or you might even be driving with your parking brake engaged. But if that smell is coming from your wheels, it’s more than likely that your brakes are overheating or failing fast. If you smell burning or see smoke coming from the front of your car, pull over and shut it off completely; then call for help.

Vibration & Pulling. We all know that an unbalanced tire can cause vibration in the steering wheel. But if that vibration is in the brake pedal, it might be caused by unresurfaced rotors or even worn out suspension parts. You also want to take notice if your steering wheel is pulling or tugging to one side when you brake. This is a clear sign of either a bad brake hose, stuck caliper, loose suspension parts, or worn brake pads.

Odd Noises. If you start hearing odd noises such as grinding, squeaking, or screeching coming from your car, this could be an indication of one of several different things. It could just mean that a rock has gotten caught between the brake pad and the disc, though I would not rest on assuming this is the case. On the other end of the spectrum, it could be that you are hearing a failing alternator, bearings, worn shocks, or even worn down brake pads. When your brake pads get worn down, you will hear a metal tab that contacts the rotor surface start to screech. This is the brake pad indicator and hearing it is a sign that you should get your brake pads checked out and replaced immediately.

Luckily, if your brakes do need replacing or repair, that’s not a problem. Just call Brakes On The Go NJ and we’ll make an appointment that’s convenient for you at a location of your choosing. We proudly serve the following New Jersey townships: Manalapan, New Jersey, Freehold, New Jersey, OId Bridge, New Jersey, Howell, New Jersey, Colt’s Neck, New Jersey, Jackson, New Jersey, Jamesburg, New Jersey, Monroe, New Jersey.

Take a moment and ask yourself, “When was the last time I had my brakes checked out by a professional?”

The day to day grind can create a situation where your vehicle’s brakes should have been replaced months ago. Between work, grocery shopping, and maybe shuttling kids back and forth from soccer or dance class, it’s easy to forget that faulty or worn-down brake pads are incredibly dangerous. Driving on damaged or worn-out brakes puts you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road at risk. Considering that treacherous winter weather is right around the corner, it’s probably time to take care of this important maintenance.

Right now, with the holidays approaching, travel season is upon us, Brakes On The Go NJ would like to remind you of a few quick things to check with your vehicle before going on that big road trip or vacation.

  • Check your Fluids. Always make sure that your fluids like oil and coolant are taken care of before any kind of extended trip. The last thing you want is to be driving around on the highway and your brakes or engine go down because of a lack of fluids or a failure to get a standard oil change.
  • Replace your old Wipers. It seems like such a simple and small detail, but you would be surprised at how many people take off on a trip every year with old, raggedy, or busted windshield wipers. Having good, new wipers can mean the difference between getting stuck in the middle of a storm and being able to navigate it properly or getting stuck in a storm and risking getting into an accident. For all of the seemingly major items to remember to have set before any kind of extended trip, it’s always good to stop and take stock of the little things that you might have otherwise forgotten.
  • Checking your Tires. Another simple check that sometimes goes unmarked, you should always make sure to check your tire pressure before a long drive as well as check for any nails or slashes in your tires. You don’t want to be out on the road with a slow leak and have your car break down. If that does happen though, you should also be prepared with a spare tire in your trunk.
  • Don’t Forget Our Phone Number, We’re here to Check Your Brakes! Even if you have gone through an entire checklist of precautions, it’s important to have a brake specialist check your brakes and rotors. That’s why you should always keep the number for Brakes On The Go NJ handy. Call us at 732-462-8800 day or night. We’ll service your vehicle anywhere in Central New Jersey. Just one phone call and our mobile auto repair shop will be on its way to replace or fix your brakes and get you on your way.
