Re: brake accumulator
I took my 1987 Chevy Cavalier to a large Chevy dealer in North Dallas to get a in warranty wheel alignment. I called as the car was suppose to be ready around 3 pm. The service manager did say the car is ready, but did you know your brakes are wore out. I ask, why are you even looking at the brakes. He said, that if it was him, he would not even drive the car out of the shop, with brakes being so dangerously low. I told him to have my car ready ASAP to drive and don't touch anything else.
That car was new and only had 20,000 miles on it. Those same oem brakes lasted me till around 65K miles due to mostly easy city driving in Dallas. I traded it for a new one just like people did back then when you drove GM cars. I discovered and bought a new Corolla in '94. I put brakes on it myself at 105,000 miles. The best car ever, I drove it to 185,000 sold it for $1500 and that lady drove it for 5 more years.
