Stop and Check Your Brakes

Stop and Check Your Brakes

Brake Safety Awareness Month in August is the perfect time to have your brakes checked to make sure they are in safe working condition before summer ends and the school year starts, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they're going to need to be replaced. A vehicle's braking system should be checked at least once a year and a thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.

A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle operation and control under a variety of driving conditions. Motorists can put a stop to any potential brake system problems by recognizing the signs and symptoms that their brake system may need maintenance or repair.

If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, they should be inspected. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.

Several factors affect brake wear including driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair, such as letting the brakes get to the "metal-to-metal" point, which can be potentially dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Took my truck in to Flusche Auto to get my ac fixed and they got it done fast. Mr. Flusche was friendly and honest. Told me everything I needed to get my truck ac working right. He probably could have charged me more with all the problems they ran into but they didn't. I am glad I found a good mechanic with fair prices. I will be taking all my vehicles here.

The owner is well educated, honest and cares! Thank you Phillip! For those of who are quick to give an unfair review you need to educate yourself when it comes to the maintenance of your own vehicle.
