Here are some important and interesting facts about auto brakes:
- There’s no exact answer for this, but, on average, most St. Louis drivers can expect to get between 25,000 and 65,000 maximum, from their new brake pads.
- On average, brake pads need to be replaced about every 50,000 miles.
- There are basically two types of brake pads: ceramic and metallic. Of the two types, ceramic brakes can tolerate heat much more readily than metallic brakes, produce less dust, and they produce much less noise.
- Ceramic auto brakes started to replace metallic brakes in the 1980s.
- Anti-lock brakes were created 1929 and were first used in the aviation industry only.
- Mercedes Benz is credited with creating the first anti-locking brakes in 1978.
- ABS brakes are now required in all cars. Europe first required them in 2004 for all cars sold. The US didn’t require them in all new cars sold until 2013.
- Braking distance refers to the distance a vehicle will travel from the point when its brakes are fully applied to when it comes to a complete stop.
