Don’t Neglect Your Brakes: The Benefits of a Brake Fluid Exchange

brake fluid exchange

At Gary Crossley Ford and the Crossley Quick Lane, we understand that your vehicle’s safety is your top priority. One essential component of safe driving is having a reliable brake system, which is why we recommend a brake fluid exchange as part of regular vehicle maintenance. 

Brake fluid is responsible for transferring force from the brake pedal to the brake calipers, allowing you to slow down and stop your vehicle. Over time, the fluid can become contaminated with moisture and debris, which can lead to decreased braking performance and potential damage to your brake system. A brake fluid exchange helps to remove the old, contaminated fluid and replace it with clean, fresh fluid, providing numerous benefits for your vehicle. 

Primarily, a brake fluid exchange can improve your vehicle’s braking performance. Fresh brake fluid can help reduce brake fade, providing better stopping power and a more responsive brake pedal. Additionally, clean brake fluid can help extend the life of your brake system, preventing costly repairs down the road. 

A brake fluid exchange also provides an opportunity for our experienced technicians to inspect the brake system for any signs of wear and tear or damage. Catching any issues early can help prevent costly repairs and ensure your vehicle is safe to drive. 

At Gary Crossley Ford and the Crossley Quick Lane, we recommend a brake fluid exchange every 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. It’s important to note that neglecting to replace the brake fluid can lead to decreased braking performance, potential damage to your brake system, and even a loss of control while driving. 

Our factory-trained technicians use state-of-the-art equipment and follow manufacturer-recommended procedures to ensure your brake fluid exchange is performed correctly. We use only high-quality fluids, including synthetic options, to help maximize your vehicle’s performance and safety.  

A brake fluid exchange is an essential component of regular vehicle maintenance that can improve your vehicle’s safety and prevent costly repairs. Don’t overlook this crucial service and risk damaging your brake system.
