Since the mid-’90s all cars have been equipped with anti-lock brakes. And it’s a good thing because anti-lock brake systems (ABS) can be crucial in bringing your car to a quick stop when you need it.

Anti-lock brakes work by providing a quick pumping action when they sense that your vehicle is slipping or beginning to slip. This quick pumping action works faster than any human could possibly do and brings your car to a full stop if you’re in a dangerous situation.

Keeping your ABS maintained properly is very important because they are a vital part of your cars braking system. Also by checking them regularly, you can prevent expensive problems that may come up in the future.

At Silvhorn Automotive, our mechanics will check the hydraulic side of your breaks and can perform a flush and fill which should be conducted every 26,000 kilometres. Flush and fills should be performed as this will keep your brake fluid fresh and prevent your ABS modulator from getting moisture and dirt.

So next time you stop by Silvhorn make sure to ask about performing an ABS check-up. Not only could this save you money down the road but keeping your ABS maintained and running smoothly can help save you down the road.
