Your brakes are the single most important safety feature on your car. While all it takes to apply the brakes is pressing the brake pedal on the floorboard, there are a few tips that you’ll need to know to ensure that you’re using the system correctly. Here’s what you should know:

  • Never ride with one foot touching the brake pedal. This keeps the brakes engaged and creates significant wear (and heat).

  • On steep downward grades, use the 1, 2 and D3 gears to help slow the vehicle rather than riding the brakes, as this reduces their effectiveness.

  • Deep water can negatively affect brake performance – test them before you need them to ensure they work correctly.
