Hit the Brakes!
Accelerating from 0 – 60 mpg in 4.0 seconds isn’t bad, but what about deaccelerating from 60 to 0? That split second of time can make the difference between life and death. Make sure your car’s brakes are in good working order so you too can safely drive in the fast lane.

Students, entry-level technicians, and experienced technicians alike will benefit from the two-volume set: a Classroom Manual to detail the theories and application of the total brake system, sub-system, and components, combined with a corresponding Shop Manual to provide real-world symptoms, diagnostics, and repair information about these systems. Major updates in this edition include coverage of the latest materials used in brake systems, current electronics, and an expanded but more general coverage of electric braking systems, so users don't get bogged down with highly detailed, manufacturer-specific information.
