Most people don't think about their vehicle's brakes until something goes wrong. Modern braking systems have long service intervals but perform a tremendous amount of work. That requires periodic inspection, maintenance and replacement of parts that wear out.
The brakes on your vehicle convert kinetic energy into heat through the friction of brake pads or shoes acting on discs or drums. How much energy? Enough to raise the temperature of your brakes to about 400 degrees Fahrenheit during normal street driving. Add towing, heavy loads and steep roads like the ten percent grade of US 14A between Dayton and Lovell and brake temperatures can easily reach 800 degrees Fahrenheit.
Brake pads and shoes wear out and if they're not replaced before making metal-to-metal contact, brake discs and drums will be ruined.
Brake fluid is the connection between the brake pedal and brakes. It must be drained and replaced at periodic intervals, usually two years. Because brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air, the replacement interval is based on time, not miles. Moisture in brake fluid not only causes a spongy pedal, it reduces the amount of stopping force that can be applied to the brake pads / shoes and that increases stopping distances. Old brake fluid also has a corrosive effect on internal brake system components.
Because brake system components wear gradually and brake fluid degrades gradually, many drivers don't feel the change in braking performance until an expensive repair is required or a panic stop cannot lock up the brakes.

"It was raining when my battery died on Sheridan Avenue. It was 4:55PM when the tow truck appeared to give me a boost. After getting my car started, I immediately drove to Technical Cowboy Automotive.
"It was too late for the local parts distributor to deliver so one of the owners personally went to pick up the correct Group 59 battery for my car.
"Ray removed my old battery and installed the new NAPA battery in a few minutes. He also cleaned the battery leads and was very mindful of the paint on my car.
"I got to Technical Cowboy late in the day without making an appointment and everybody went out of their way with a clean, quick and professional installation of my new battery."
