Are Your Brakes Good to the Last Stop?

Our team here at Belknap Subaru in Tilton knows the brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicles possesses. By having the brakes on your vehicle regularly checked by professionals, you keep yourself and your loved ones safe on the road.

When driving we're in a constant pattern of stop and go. For our vehicles to be able to stop when we need them to, they need well-maintained brakes. Drivers from Concord, Manchester, and beyond bring their vehicles to our service team to evaluate and maintain their brakes.

Our trained team of experienced technicians is well-versed in brake inspections and replacement. They know the exact parts that are designed to work with your Subaru's braking system. With the right parts and know-how, you'll remain in control if you need to brake abruptly.

Your vehicle's braking system is complex. Your Subaru's braking system needs friction, hydraulic force, and leverage to bring the vehicle to a stop.

The driver supplies the leverage when they put pressure on the brake pedal. The pedal is connected to the back of the power booster by the levers and rods. The force of that leverage is transferred to the master cylinder by the power booster using either an engine vacuum or a hydraulic pump.

The heart of your vehicle's brake hydraulic system is the master cylinder. Using the applied leverage, it forces the brake fluid in the reservoir through the valves, rubber hoses, and steel lines into hydraulic calipers and wheel cylinders. The hydraulic pressure created helps create needed friction.
