This research paper analyzes the effect of brake thickness depending on driving conditions and age groups in the Empire Hyundai by using a naturalistic observational study. It is like a cohort study, but we did not have control groups. The data was naturally collected from the vehicles and technicians. A total of 60 respondents (Hyundai service center customers) were selected for the study purposes and the recruitment period was from Sep 1st, 2022 to Oct 21st, 2022. Questionnaires were used to distinguish customers into different groups. The statistical tool computed quantitative data analysis, two-sample t-test, and Chi-square test analysis. The analysis indicates that there is no significant relationship between brake usage and road condition (Highway vs Local) in New York City, and also the mean of milage at the first brake pad replacement between the highway groups and local groups have no significant differences.
