Your brakes are important every day of the year, but they are extra important in the winter months. You need a healthy brake system that is working properly to help you stop and slow down when road conditions aren't ideal and visibility on Northern Delaware roads is often compromised with rain, fog, mist, sleet or snow. In addition, the wet roads, road salt, ice and other grease and debris can accumulate under your car as you drive in the winter. This can gunk up the brake system and cause issues.

Now is a good time to get your brakes checked by a local automotive repair specialist. If you are in the Northern Delaware area, Fox Run Auto is here to help with all your brake service needs.
