It might sound a little crazy but you actually do become one with your vehicle as you drive each day. It becomes an extension of your body with steering, brakes, and power responding to your movement. As your body's physical changes occur gradually, so do changes in your vehicle. Drivers hardly notice a minor irregularity in braking action, for example, until it becomes serious. As we subconsciously compensate for a slight pull to one side when the brakes are applied, we may become so accustomed to the pull that we are unaware of deteriorating performance.
Be Car Care Aware and don't take your brakes for granted. If an emergency were to arise on the highway when you are driving 65 miles an hour, chances are you would travel 70 feet before your foot hit the pedal. Then you'd go another 250 feet before stopping, even on a dry road with good tires and brakes. This should be reason enough for you to stop by Kirtec Auto Services to have your brake system inspected today. You'll be glad you did!
