Maybe it's just me but it seems Huntington Beach has something against Auto and Truck brakes. We just got through with a boomer year for brake repair. I'm sure we haven't got the biggest hills, especially since they flattened out “Edwards Hill”, it just seems the locals are going through brakes at a record pace.
Many of the later model vehicles will not need brake work till after 100,000 miles. However we will still get these same vehicles in at 30,000 miles that need some repair or replacement. Even though it may be “old school” I still recommend to pump the brakes slightly as you stop. Seems to give a little more life to them.
