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 say

Car troubles are literally THE worst. This company takes the stress out of it. Melissa made sure to get me the best rate on a car rental while my jeep was in the shop. Twice now. She also continued to update us throughout the process. Crabapple Auto is a family owned, trustworthy company!

I am a new customer at Crabapple Automotive. I brought my older model truck in for service (oil leaks, sloppy steering). I was given an estimate along with an explanation of what needed to be done and why the work was necessary. These folks were honest and on point with everything I researched on my own before getting Crabapple Automotive's diagnosis and quote. I will be a long time customer from now on. Great folks!

I visited for an emissions test and received fast, efficient, and courteous service. The tech was knowledgeable about my car and the clerk was friendly and polite.

My family has trusted their excellent work for many years and even though I live almost an hour south of there now, I still come up to Crabapple Automotive as much as possible when I need some work done.
