Everybody is talking about gas and fuel
efficiency these days, but this August we're talking about Brake Safety
Awareness. Keeping your car in good shape can prevent crashes and protect your
investment, and brakes are one of the most important systems in a vehicle. We're
encouraging consumers to learn the importance of a safe brake system and urging
them to pull into a MAP participating facility to get their brakes checked
during Brake Safety Awareness Month.
Throughout this event, the nation's
leading consumer auto service non-profit organization the Motorist Assurance
Program wants you to stop at any MAP participating repair shop for a
brake and related undercar inspection. There's no better way to ensure that
your vehicle's braking and other undercar systems are working properly before
heading into the fall and winter driving seasons.
During Brake Safety Awareness Month,
participating shops will offer inspections, educate vehicle owners regarding
key undercar systems, provide complimentary automotive troubleshooting
materials, and answer consumers' preventative maintenance questions.
