It is crucial that any motor vehicle runs at its best, however, making sure a vehicle can stop is all the more important for motorists in and around San Diego.
A vehicles braking system can wear over time, and if not checked, it can lead to problems in the system or a complete failure.
When brakes are slowing a vehicle, they are exposed to extreme levels of heat, and this in itself can wear the brake pads which take the brunt of the force. Add in any climate temperatures, and this level of stress can be quickly increased.
