When your Madison brakes aren't working, you need the experts at one of Madison Auto Care's seven NAPA service centers.
Your mind was wandering a bit while driving home from Olbrich's Holiday Express when you happened to look up and saw that stop sign. You slammed on your brakes, but your car didn't stop as quickly as you expected. It stopped, but almost slid all the way into the intersection. Now you're wondering if you need to go to one of Madison Auto Care's seven auto care centers to have the Madison brake professionals install a new set.
Your Madison brakes certainly might need to be repaired or replaced. But there could be other things wrong that contributed to the long stopping distance. For example, your tires could be at fault. Auto.howstuffworks.com says, "Tires are one of the most important elements when stopping a vehicle quickly and efficiently. ... Tires with little or no tread will be more susceptible to skidding during heavy braking. When the tires skid (a decrease of the traction coefficient), they lose traction and increase the braking distance."
It's not just tires that contribute to problems when braking.
"Tires work hand in hand with the vehicle's braking and suspension systems. If any of these components aren't up to specification, the vehicle's braking distance can change," auto.howstuffworks.com says. "Worn brake drums, rotors, pads, shoes or leaky brake lines will have an adverse affect on braking. And since weight transfer has so much to do with braking, worn shocks and springs will only add distance during braking."
So, yes, you DO need to take your car to the certified Madison brake and auto repair experts at one of Madison Auto Care's service centers so they can figure out the real problem.
