Brake Failure
  • Brake fade is not as serious as brake failure, but it can have similar consequences—long stopping distances and minimal vehicle control. Brake fade occurs when you use your brakes often, such as on a steep, downhill grade. The brakes will work, but they won’t stop the car quickly.
  • To minimize the risks of brake fade, downshift to a lower gear when traveling down steep hills or driving in the mountains.
