Tricks to Lessen the Wear on Your European Brakes in Cincinnati
Stylistically and when it comes to mechanics, owning a European vehicle has its advantages, but nobody looks forward to a brake job, especially if you drive fairly often in Cincinnati bumper to bumper traffic. The good news is there are techniques and strategies you can adopt to your everyday driving style that can dramatically improve the longevity of your brake job.
Speed East Brakes like a European Breakfast
Speed just isn’t any good on your brakes. In fact, hard stops from just 55 to 65 miles an hour will eat your brakes a third faster than casual braking. Kinetic energy is affected by both your car’s weight and your rate of speed. The heavier your car, the faster you drive, the more wear on your brakes. Slow down, and you’ll also slow down the speed at which you go through those pads.
Coast Your Life Away
Along the same notion, coasting is also a great way to lessen the wear on your brakes. If you spot the light changing red, take your foot off the gas and coast as close as you can before braking to a stop. Coast to the end of freeway ramps. Easy does it helps to make your European brakes last in Cincinnati.
