How does the brake assist system work?
Once upon a time, cars only had one braking system. When you pressed the brake pedal, the brakes would activate and slow down the car, eventually allowing you to stop it. Today, you have a number of different brake systems, including the brake assist system. Here’s how it works:
When you press the pedal, you may hear a noise from the brake assist system. This is normal.
When the brake assist system engages, you may feel a slight movement in the brake pedal. This is normal.
