Subaru Service Center in NJ Helps to Ensure Safe Stops

Nearly every day, you get into the driver’s seat, turn the key, and get going. Sooner or later it’s time to get stopping, and you rely on your brakes to bring you and your vehicle to a safe stop. Of course, bringing several thousand pounds of metal to a safe stop is no easy task!

If you’ve visited our NJ Subaru service center for brake work in the past, then you know that your brake pads or brake shoes will naturally wear down over time from applying pressure to your vehicle’s spinning rotors or drums; that’s how your brakes slow down your vehicle. There’s a lot more going on when you put your foot on the brake pedal, though, thanks to your Subaru’s advanced antilock braking system (ABS).

Performing Under Pressure

When your brakes are applied, they create friction to slow down the spinning of your wheels. With too much pressure, though, the brakes will simply cause the wheel to lock up and skid. In the past, drivers had to hone their skills and manually apply and reduce pressure to slow the car down as much as possible without locking the wheels.

Modern vehicles rely on ABS instead. The Subaru brakes that NJ drivers rely on make use of ABS to prevent your wheels from skidding without unduly reducing your stopping distance. To accomplish this, your ABS makes use of speed sensors in the wheels, valves that control brake pressure, and a control module that makes sense of the information to control the valves.

If the ABS light on your dash is illuminated, it’s an indication that there’s a problem somewhere along the line. While a speed sensor is the most likely issue due to the exposure they have to the elements, any component could be the problem.

Our certified technicians have the training and advanced diagnostic tools to get to the bottom of any trouble you’re having with your brakes or ABS.
