What impacts the Life of your Mercedes-Benz Brakes?
Your Driving Habits: If you brake suddenly and often when driving around Syosset, instead of gently pressing down on the brake pedal, or if you ride the brakes instead of coasting softly to a stop, your brake pads won’t last very long.
Brake Material: Carbon-ceramic brakes tend to last longer than standard metal brakes, but they also cost a bit more. If you don’t know if your brakes are carbon-ceramic, ask the service technicians at the Rallye Motors service department.
Environment: Driving in the inner city usually means more traffic and traffic lights, so you’ll have to brake more often. Driving on the highway usually means you get longer brake life than when driving in the city.
