Avoid needless heavy braking. Some people drive
in spurts —* heavy acceleration followed by heavy braking -- rather than keeping pace with trafﬁc. This
is a mistake Your brakes may not have time to cool between hard stops. Your brakes will 1wear out much faster if you do a lot of heavy braking. If you keep pace with the traffic and allow realistic following distances. you wiII eliminate a lot of unnecessary braking. That means better braking and longer brake life.
If your engine ever stops while you're driving. brake normally but don‘t pump your brakes. If you do. the pedal may get harder to push down. If your engine stops. you will still have some power brake assist. But you will use it when you brake. Once the power assist is used up. it may take longer to stop and the brake pedal will be harder to push.
Anti-Lock Brisket; (ABS)
Your Buick has an advanced clottronie braking system 1hat will help prevent a braking skid.
When you start your vehicle and begin to drive away, you may hear a momentary motor or clicking noise. And you may even notice that your brake pedal moves a lillli: while this is going on. This is the ABS system testing itself. If there‘s a problem with the anti—luck brake system. the antHo-ck brake system warning light will stay on.
See "Antleo-cl: Brake System Warning Light“ in the Index.
This light on the
instru ment panel will come on brieﬂy when you aim your vehicle.
