More than anything else in your vehicle, the brakes and braking system are responsible for the safety of the occupants of said vehicle. Being the system completely responsible for slowing and stopping the car, the braking system needs to be in top working order at all times. Keeping your brakes and braking system in shape with regular maintenance is essential to your brakes’ performance, and failure could be disastrous. If your vehicle needs brake service or repair, bring it to the ASE certified technicians at RI Automotive we offer the best brake repair in Tampa and the surrounding area.
Brake Service in Tampa, FL
Regular brake service and preventative maintenance are essential to keeping your braking system in working order. Most vehicle’s braking systems feature a rotor, a caliper, and brake pads. When the brakes stop the vehicle, the pads or shoes wear down, eventually needing replacement. Coasting around Tampa, FL on worn brake pads can hurt the system’s rotor, which means more expensive problems down the road. RI Automotive recommends checking out your car’s owner’s manual to figure out how often brake maintenance is required for your car, and we are happy to help you determine this.
