Care Tips for the Chevrolet Impala Brake Disc and Pad Kit
The Chevrolet Impala is one of the longer cars in the Chevy line-up. Despite its frame, it has capable engine and transmission that drives the heavy body to a smooth cruise. These components make the car manageable to drive on the road even with many passengers. However, the car also needs adequate stopping power. This will come from the Chevrolet Impala brake disc and pad kit. The old drum brakes have come a long way from the first time they were introduced to cars. As auto manufacturers focus on improving safety and maneuverability, the tech trend has shifted into developing disc brakes. This type of brakes offers a more precise stopping response that the drum brakes cannot offer. This is why, most, if not all vehicles, are equipped with disc brakes at least on the front. While your Chevrolet Impala brake disc and pad kit will eventually wear out throughout a long period of use, it would be ideal that you take care of it. Here are some maintenance tips for this component.
- Develop the habit of accelerating smoothly when you drive the Impala.
You may have the urge to stomp on the gas pedal and flat out whenever you can. We don't blame you because we also have the urge to do so. But on the contrary, we have to hold ourselves back. Jackrabbit starts can put unnecessary stress on your car, including its brake system. Smooth accelerations on the other hand, ease of that stress and make it easier for the brakes to bring the car to a stop. Develop that good habit, and you can preserve the Chevrolet Impala brake disc and pad kit for a longer period of time.
- Anticipate going to a full stop on red lights, intersections, crossings, etc.
The same principle is applied to hitting the brakes to come to a full stop. You would want to avoid hitting the brakes hard to put your Impala to a sudden stop. This puts on too much stress on your brakes. You can reduce this stress by letting off the gas pedal as you shift your foot to the brake pedal. Anticipate possible stops from afar, and you'll be coming to a stop smoothly.
