Brake Safety Awareness Month

Brake Safety Awareness Month

August is Brake Safety Awareness Month, sponsored by the Motorist Assurance Program (MAP). Your brake system plays a crucial role in keeping you, and other motorists on the road, safe. Protect your brake system by following your manufacturer’s service schedule that best matches your vehicle’s operating conditions. Bring your car into your local Sears Auto Center if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Scraping or grinding noises coming from the brakes
  • Test of brake fluid indicates a copper content of 200 ppm or greater, indicating the requirement for fluid replacement
  • Brake pedal feels soft or spongy when brake pedal is depressed
  • Vehicle pulls to one side when the brakes are applied
  • Brake fluid level in master cylinder is low
  • Brake system warning lamp stays illuminated
