Why Your Braking System Is Important

Safe driving requires precise control and reaction time and one of your car’s most important control systems is the braking system. Your car’s brakes are a complex system made of several different moving parts and fluid that allows you to stop your car as needed be it for stop signs in Grand Chute or an emergency such as a car cutting in front of you suddenly. Reaction time is measured in seconds and the slightest delay can lead to an accident so your brakes need to be in top condition at all times.

Braking System Inspection

Don’t underestimate the usefulness of a simple inspection. A brake system inspection checks the various components of your automobile’s brake system, including front and rear parts, seeing if any repairs or maintenance is required. Regular inspections protect you from random braking issues and keep you safe during drives to Doty Island.


Brake Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement



Your brake fluid transmits the pressure that causes your car to stop when you press down on the brake pedal. However, over time brake fluid can break down or become contaminated requiring it to be flushed and replaced.




Your car’s brake pads are under a great deal of heat and pressure every time you stop your automobile. Over time the material on your brake pads wears thin and requires replacing. Old brake pads can reduce stopping ability making driving in Menasha hazardous.



Like your brake pads over time your car’s rotors become damaged due to the pressure of regular braking. Your rotors can become warped or wear unevenly requiring they be resurfaced to restore them to their expected performance.
