Your car is an important part of your life, whether you want to admit it or not. Without your car, we doubt you would be able to get anywhere in a timely fashion. Because of this, we wanted to make sure that you understand how to take care of your car properly. After all, doing so can result in your old (or new) car lasting for years and years to come. In our previous posts we focused on making sure you get your car’s oil changed every 3,000 to 7,500 miles and the brakes pads checked or changed every 30,000 to 40,000 miles. So what should you look out for next?
Rotors or Drums
You car’s rotors or drums actually play a pretty big part in your car’s wellbeing; yes, even if you don’t know what rotors or drums do. To give you a little insight, the rotors or drums play a big part in your vehicle’s brake system. These parts have to work together for your brakes to work effectively and properly. So, just like brake pads, your vehicle’s brake rotors or drums can eventually become worn down resulting in the need of replacement. We should note that your car’s rotors or drums may be worn down because the brake pads are shot and need replacement a while back. Taking care of your rotors or drums will result in more efficient stopping, giving you a safety advantage while out on the road.
