Brakes

We here at McLaren Scottsdale located right in Scottsdale, AZ fully understand that safety is the top priority in a car for you and your family. That is why we think it is so important to tell you all of the basics about the brakes in your car.

Brakes work by clamping down on the rotors of your car in order to slow it down. This is done through the use of brake fluid which flows through brake lines. It is important to note that your brake fluid should always be full so that your brakes always operate properly. Experts estimate that the average brakes will last for roughly 40,000 miles. This number of course can be higher or lower for each driver.

The biggest determining factor in how long your brakes last is how roughly they are used. If you brake lightly, your brakes will last far longer than if you frequently slam on your brakes.
