Living in the Northeast means we experience a lot of weather that can put a lot of stress on your car’s brake system. Due to salt and brine, brake lines can rust and seize and rotors and pads can warp after just one season.


Making sure you have roadworthy brakes is one of the most important aspects of safe driving. A vehicle’s stopping distance can be increased and lead to an accident with bad brakes. Brake failure accidents account for nearly 1/4 of all accidents. Making sure your car is safe is one of our top priorities. Checking your braking system should be done frequently to ensure you are as risk-free as possible on the road.

Types of Brakes

Times have changed a bit; most older cars came with drum brakes. Then, disc brakes popped up and became the most popular type of brakes in nearly all makes and models of cars. It’s not as simple as that, though. There is a variety of disc brakes, and their uses and practicality vary based on the type of car and driver you are. Additionally, some vehicles utilize both types of brakes, drum and disc. Then there are a variety of rotors. Your average vehicle has standard, solid layer disc brakes. Performance and luxury vehicles are usually a different style. Cross-drilled, slotted, j-hooks, etc. Do you know what kind of brakes you have, or what kind of brakes you need? Al’s Auto Care will help you figure out what style of brakes your car needs and whether or not you would benefit from a different style of brakes. Make an appointment and let us help you out.
