Why is Brake Fluid Important for Your Vehicle?

Whether you have disc or drum brakes on your vehicle, good brake fluid at a sufficient level is essential for proper brake operation. Brake fluid is needed so that sufficient pressure may be placed on the braking system so that your vehicle will stop properly. Good brake fluid also allows your car to stop with consistent pedal force every time you attempt to stop your vehicle.

Keeping your brake fluid maintained properly will help to ensure that your brakes operate properly and consistently, whether you're driving in Kansas City, MO or out on country roads. You should make it a habit to check your brake fluid level when you check your vehicle's other important fluids. You can top up the brake fluid if necessary.

About once a year, you should have your brake system checked at Northtowne Hyundai. The service department will check the fluid, rotors, pads and calipers while they assess your vehicle's brake system.
