Proper brake performance is mandatory to ensure safety for your family and others on the road. Your vehicle brake system is a complex system of parts and fluids that work together to ensure your vehicle stops when you need it to stop.

There are two basic types of braking systems; drum and disk. Most vehicles today come with front disk and rear drum brakes and almost all include an anti-lock braking system (ABS) to prevent skidding or slipping on wet or icy roads. Computer controlled ABS brakes are designed to allow you maximum steering control while preventing dangerous brake lockups in panic braking situations.

You do not have to be a brakes & brake repair specialist to know that your brake system is breaking, however if you want to learn more about brakes and braking system, visit HowStuffWorks.  We have also listed some common warning signs that you may need new brakes or brake repairs.
