Give Your Brakes Some Attention During National Brake Safety Awareness Month

August 18th, 2018 by

Even though summer doesn’t officially end until September, many people consider the season’s end to be when school starts. In a lot of cases, that means summer unofficially ends in August. Whether August signals the end of summer for you or not, August should signal that you should give your brakes some attention.

Why should August be the time that you give your brakes some extra attention? It’s because the Car Care Council has dubbed August “National Brake Safety Awareness Month.”

While a lot of drivers know they need to change their oil and oil filter every 3,000 – 5,000 miles and that they should have their tires rotated every other time they change their oil, not nearly as many know how often they should have their brakes inspected. Because your tires will already be off your car, making your brakes easy to see, it’s generally wise to have your brakes inspected whenever you have your tires rotated.

If it hadn’t occurred to you to have your brakes inspected when you’ve had your tires rotated until now and it’s been a while since you had your brakes inspected, we encourage you to make an appointment to bring your car into our Richmond, KY Honda service center for a brake inspection now. While bringing your car to our Honda dealership for service during National Brake Safety Awareness Month is a good idea, shopping for a new Honda car is a great idea any time of year.

We invite you to look through our new Honda offers on the latest Honda models to arrive at our convenient location. When you find a deal that appeals to you, visit Gates Honda to take your favorite Honda car for a test drive.
