Many of us will be traveling over the holidays and we want to make sure our cars are going to make it to our destination. The last thing you want is to break down with all the family in the car and the presents. It can be an utter disaster!

 “Brakes are one of the most important functionality of the car and we don’t want to ignore them because it can be a very big issue. If you start hearing noises with your brakes have it checked out right away. It’s not a repair you want to put off," recommends Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List.

While modern cars are more reliable than ever, they still need regular maintenance and brakes are one car repair where you don’t want to cut corners.  Angie’s List  spoke to several experienced auto repair specialists about your car’s brakes.
