Celebrate Brake Safety Awareness Month with River City Tire & Automotive!

August is Brake Safety Awareness Month, which makes this time the perfect occasion to stop by our auto repair shop for a thorough brake inspection. Although your brakes may seem like they are working fine, there are certain aspects that our professional mechanics can check to be sure. 


Thickness of Brake Pads. Our mechanics can check to see how much your brake pads have worn down. Typically, if they are less than ¼ inch thick, it is wise to replace them. 


Brake Fluid Levels. Brake fluid is vital to the functioning of the entire brake system. If the fluid is low, leaking, or smells burnt, you may need a brake fluid exchange. 


Any Unusual Noises. In normal conditions, braking should be a soundless experience. If you hear squealing or grinding noises, it is a sign that you have worn brake pads. 


Warning Light. Most vehicles have a special brake light that lights up when there is trouble with a primary or secondary braking system. Ignoring this dashboard warning signal can lead to brake failure or locking brakes. 


Firmness of Brake Pedal. The feeling of your brake pedal can be very telling of your brake system’s condition. If it feels too soft or spongy, this could indicate air in your brake fluid lines. 


A comprehensive brake inspection at River City Tire & Automotive is the best way to end the summer. The braking system is necessary to ensure your and others’ safety. A brake inspection can save you money in the long run by keeping your brakes in tip-top shape. Therefore, do yourself a favor by taking your car to our auto repair shop to celebrate Brake Safety Awareness Month.
