The Purpose of Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is essential for you to be able to stop your vehicle in the appropriate manner. When you apply the brakes, brake fluid goes to each brake so that pressure can bring your vehicle to a stop. There are signs to look for regarding when your brake fluid needs to be changed.

If the brake warning light comes on in your vehicle, you may have low brake fluid. If your vehicle is coming to a stop over a longer distance, this is a sign of low or poor brake fluid. If the brake pedal has a very soft or spongy feel instead of a firm feeling when it is depressed, the brake fluid definitely needs to be checked.

If you suspect that you might be having an issue with your vehicle's brake system, contact the service department at Honda Cars of Rock Hill in Rock Hill, SC. The technicians can check brake fluid and replace it if necessary.
