GUIDE: What To Do If Your Brakes Fail

This guide comes from the website Art Of Manliness and covers what you should do if you experience a sudden hydraulic brake failure in your vehicle. But, there is one piece of miss information in this illustration. Most ABS systems can detect a hydraulic failure and pumping the brakes is acceptable.

The best way to avoid a brake failure is to have your brakes inspected regularly. If you hear any abnormal sounds or experience strange pedal feel or travel, don’t wait taking it to a shop. 99% of brake problems are not intermittent and will not self heal.
