Do you know that faulty brakes and faulty clutch are the leading causes of road accidents? People in a rush often tend to skip brakes and clutch tests during their car servicing. But we can’t stress it enough: well-functioning brakes and clutch are vital for your safety on streets, and for others. 

So the next time you book your vehicle for servicing, do not forget to get your brakes and clutch tested. We, at Bosch car service – Armstrong creek motors, proud for having a team of the best mechanics in grovedale, who identify the issues with your car and treat them before they can cause dangerous road accidents. 

How often do brakes and Clutch need replacement? 

Heavy traffic wears out your clutch and brakes more than the open highway. So if you’re living in a city, or in an area with heavy traffic, it’s more likely that your clutch will wear out faster. 

Certain driving habits like frequent gear shifting also tend to accelerate the wearing and tearing of clutch and brakes. 

A clutch usually lasts between 60,000-100,000 miles, but its lifespan is highly dependent on the level of use, wear and tear. So it’s good to get your clutch tested every 60,000 miles. 

On the other hand, brake pads are generally thought to be good from anywhere between 30,000-35,000 miles. However, there are certain driving conditions and habits which can cause early wear and tear of brakes.  When it comes to brakes, you can never be too careful. So it’s good to get your brakes tested between every 10,000 to 20,000 miles.
