Chicago, IL – Is one of your everyday activities putting your safety and the safety of others at risk? It is if you’re driving on worn-out or poor-quality brake fluid. Even with the best brake pads, driving on substandard brake fluid puts you in danger of not being able to stop. That’s why people trust the number one brand of brake fluid, Prestone synthetic brake fluid from Prestone Products Corporation.

Because brakes create high temperatures and are stressed by environmental extremes, braking failure triggered by brake fluid boiling can occur. Prestone® produces premium brake fluids with a higher dry boiling point for increased vehicle safety. Prestone® DOT 3 High Temperature Synthetic Brake Fluid and Prestone® DOT 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid ensure optimal brake performance in extreme system conditions.

By starting off at a higher dry boiling point, Prestone synthetic brake fluids provide added safety, last longer and are better able to handle extreme braking temperatures occurring from stop-and-go traffic, towing or descending a mountain pass, among other challenges. Prestone synthetic brake fluids exceed the DOT-3 and DOT-4 automotive boiling point specifications.

Additionally, Prestone brake fluids are formulated with a corrosion inhibitor package to protect your car’s braking system. Brake fluid doesn’t just facilitate stopping, it also protects moving parts from the damaging effects of corrosion.

It is recommended that brake fluid be changed every two to three years or 30,000-60,000 miles for ideal performance. For a demonstration of Prestone’s synthetic brake fluid products, visit the Prestone YouTube channel.
