Brake System

In order to assure brake system performance, all brake system components should be inspected periodically.

Refer to the “Maintenance Schedule” for the proper maintenance intervals.

WARNING!
Riding the brakes can lead to brake failure and possibly a collision. Driving with your foot resting or riding on the brake pedal can result in abnormally high brake temperatures, excessive lining wear, and possible brake damage. You would not have your full braking capacity in an emergency.
