Braking systems in cars are one of the most critical of all automotive safety systems. Brakes allow you to slow down, stop, avoid potential accidents and keep your car stationary when parked.

There’s a lot more to the braking system than just brake pads; it’s vital that you get the entire system checked and maintained regularly to ensure you and your family travel safely. We recommend you check and service brake systems every six months to keep them in good working order. Maintenance and repair work on your brakes should always be carried out by a trusted professional.
