Volvo has always outfitted their cars with excellent brake systems and was one of the first car manufacturers to offer the superior performance of disc brakes at all 4 corners beginning on the 1967 Volvo 144, 15 years before it became popular on most cars. Volvo also pioneered the application of dual circuit brake hydraulics, which provides a redundant back up system. If the brakes at any single wheel failed, the other 3 would still work correctly. Volvo did this in the 1960's, many cars didn't offer this until the late 70's. This ipd newsletter is crammed full of our most popular and helpful tech tips and articles to help you keep your brakes performing safely with maximum stopping power.
