When it comes to car brake safety, the braking system is at the top of the list.

This month have your brakes inspected at one of e-CAR’s national workshops to make sure they are in safe working condition.

Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, have e-CAR check your cars braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection at one of our national workshops will include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking your car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.

If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear strange noises when you apply the brakes, you should have your brakes inspected immediately. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.

Never put off your yearly brake inspection or any needed repairs, like letting your car brakes get to the “metal-to-metal” point, which can be dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.

You can avoid any break system problems by booking your car in for an inspection today.
