Broken brakes

Badly worn brake system underline the importance of regular vehicle maintenance... and an inspection every once in a while!

Tyler Rump of Roy Rump & Sons Tire and Auto Center in Ottawa, Ont., sent in this picture of a badly worn brake system.

“This first-time customer came in for a brake noise,” he wrote. “The tech couldn’t believe what he saw when he took the wheel off!”

The car had gone so long without a brake check that the pad was completely eaten through, and the caliper was starting to disintegrate in chunks. Take a look!
