Suzuki brake system is one of those things you only think about when it fouls up (or you do). Like when the service guy says, "You need your Suzuki rotors ground and it's gonna cost $200," or you're surprised by a yellow light at an intersection. Suddenly your Suzuki brakes are of acute interest. Why wait for unpleasant surprises? A general understanding of your Suzuki car brakes system can save you money, and may allow you to drive that Suzuki more safely and save a lot more than just cash. After all, the more you know, the better you can care for your Suzuki automobile.
Suzuki Brakes Theory. Ask any of your physicist pals, and they'll tell you that Suzuki brakes convert the kinetic energy of Suzuki vehicle motion into heat. Translation: Suzuki brakes stop the Suzuki, or more accurately, Suzuki brakes stop the wheels on the Suzuki automobile. There's a big difference, because the most powerful brakes in the world will not stop your Suzuki automobile effectively if the road surface has little or no traction. Mash the Suzuki brake pedal and the wheels on an the Suzuki will stop turning sure enough, but the Suzuki auto will skid along happily. You, on the other hand, will be a lot less happy. Many drivers tend to think of a skid as "Suzuki brake failure" when in fact the situation is really a failure of the driver to understand the traction conditions and to drive accordingly.
Suzuki Brakes Basics. The typical Suzuki passenger vehicle brake system is relatively simple. When you step on the Suzuki brake pedal, the force your leg exerts is applied to a device called a brake master cylinder. The Suzuki brake master cylinder contains a piston that pressurizes a network of hydraulic Suzuki brake lines that lead to each of the Suzuki vehicle's wheels. At each Suzuki wheel, that brake fluid pressure operates the Suzuki brakes by driving brake pistons that force replaceable brake linings against a rotating Suzuki brake drum or Suzuki disc brake pad. Friction is what slows the Suzuki wheel, and in turn, the entire Suzuki vehicle. When the friction material (a.k.a. Suzuki brake pads, Suzuki linings, Suzuki brake shoes) is almost worn out, metallic tabs are designed to create a squealing or chirping noise when the Suzuki brakes are applied to (hopefully) alert the driver that the Suzuki brake linings are due for replacement. Heed the warning. Worn Suzuki linings have less fade-resistance than new Suzuki linings. Plus, if you ignore the warnings long enough, you can do costly damage to the Suzuki brake rotors, Suzuki brake drums and other Suzuki brake components. Even with regular replacement of the Suzuki brake shoes and Suzuki disc brake pads, some additional service is typically required over the long haul. The surfaces of Suzuki brake drums and Suzuki disc brake rotors wear unevenly in normal use and eventually need to be re-machined to work properly. All modern Suzuki brakes systems are many times more powerful than the Suzuki engine, so at full throttle, even a very powerful Suzuki automobile can be easily stopped with the Suzuki brakes. All Suzuki automobiles also have a parking brake (sometimes called the emergency brake) that works independently of the regular Suzuki brake system. The Suzuki parking brake typically acts on only the Suzuki rear wheels and is mechanically operated to work in case of a hydraulic brake problem with the regular Suzuki service brakes.

Better Suzuki Brakes. Many engineering refinements over the history of the automobile have spectacularly improved the function and reliability of Suzuki braking systems. Power brakes are standard on virtually all modern Suzuki passenger vehicles, and they use energy supplied by the engine to help power the Suzuki brakes so that the strength of your right leg doesn't have to do all the work. To eliminate the possibility of sudden, complete Suzuki brake failure, modern Suzuki vehicles actually have two parallel Suzuki brake systems, with each brake system controlling two of the Suzuki vehicle's wheels. This way, even if one Suzuki brake system has a major brake failure, the other Suzuki brake system can still stop the Suzuki auto (albeit less effectively). Suzuki brakes themselves have dramatically improved over the years, too. A few decades ago, Suzuki drum brakes were in wide usage, and they're still used on the rear wheels of many vehicles. This type of brake employs a drum-shaped assembly that spins with the wheel. Inside the Suzuki brake drum, stationary "Suzuki brake shoes" faced with replaceable friction material are forced against the Suzuki brake drum when you push the Suzuki brake pedal. Drum brakes work well, but they have a hard time shedding heat well enough to prevent fade when used really hard. Suzuki Brake fade occurs when the brake overheats dramatically; Suzuki braking power is vastly reduced, and the Suzuki) brake components and Suzuki brake linings can be damaged. A significant advancement came in the form of Suzuki disc brakes, which today are used almost universally on Suzuki front wheels (which do most of the work under Suzuki braking) and on many rear wheels. Suzuki disc brake systems have a metal (or exotic material in some racing applications) disc (or brake rotor) that spins along with the Suzuki wheel, and a stationary "brake caliper" that squeezes the disc with replaceable friction material (Suzuki brake pad) when the Suzuki brakes are applied. With plenty of airflow on the exposed discs, these types of Suzuki brakes are much less fade-prone. Additionally, the Suzuki discs are often internally vented to allow even greater airflow. Back when brake fade was a common problem on long mountainous descents, drivers would shift the transmission into a lower gear to allow engine braking to take some of the load off of the Suzuki brakes. With modern Suzuki brakes, this is usually no longer required, except in situations such as towing a heavy load downhill.
Suzuki Anti-Lock Brakes Systems. Suzuki tires generate the maximum deceleration when braking power is brought right to the brink of wheel lock-upóbut not beyond. Once the Suzuki brakes lock and the wheels skid, actual deceleration is reduced and directional control via the Suzuki steering is lost. Electronically controlled Suzuki anti-lock brakes systems (ABS) have netted great advances in Suzuki auto controllability and reduced stopping distances in most real-world situations, particularly in rain or when cornering. Suzuki ABS uses a combination of electronics and hydraulic controls to allow normal braking right up to the point of Suzuki wheel lock-up, then the Suzuki brake system intervenes to reduce fluid pressure to the Suzuki brakes to keep the Suzuki automobile deceleration at its maximum, given the road conditions. Typical Suzuki ABS systems have speed sensors at each wheel that continuously feed information to a centrally located Suzuki ABS computer. The computer uses this data to determine overall Suzuki auto speed, and to detect when a Suzuki wheel begins to lock. Since each wheel is independently controlled (in a four-channel Suzuki ABS system), pressure is automatically limited or reduced to only the wheel that is locking. Three-channel Suzuki ABS is a slightly less complex system used on some Suzuki automobiles; it allows for independent control of each of the front wheels, but applies the same Suzuki braking pressure to both Suzuki rear wheels. Measurable performance differences between these two types of Suzuki ABS are slight, and both types of Suzuki ABS have a significant advantage over non-ABS brakes. When one wheel locks on a non-ABS car, the only way to allow it to spin again and regain full directional control is by the driver reducing the brake pedal pressure, which reduces the braking force at all four wheels at once. Suzuki ABS is capable of providing shorter stopping distances in difficult situations than would a conventional Suzuki brakes system, even with an expert doing the driving. Driving with Suzuki ABS requires no special training, though you might need to un-learn a technique that makes some sense with non-ABS brakes. With old-style Suzuki brakes, drivers were commonly told to "pump" the Suzuki brakes when they were approaching Suzuki wheel lockup. This rule of thumb was meant to help the average driver avoid fully locking the Suzuki brakes and skidding straight ahead without Suzuki steering control. With Suzuki ABS, you simply push on the Suzuki brake pedal as hard as necessary to make the Suzuki stop. If Suzuki traction is marginal, you may feel a pulsing sensation through the Suzuki brake pedal, which is completely normal. Throughout the stop, you have Suzuki steering control, so you can swerve or turn if required to avoid an obstacle.
