Honda Brake Service and Safety

 

Honda cars like the 2018 Honda Accord are known for being reliable, and that’s one of the reasons we love providing new Honda models for sale here in Virginia Beach, VA. However, no matter how well-built and dependable a car is, certain components wear down over time. Your brakes are one such component and to ensure that your car stays safe and functional, it’s important to take the proper steps to care for your brakes.

Here at Hall Honda Virginia Beach, we want our drivers to feel confident in their vehicle and have the necessary knowledge required to care for them. Luckily, brake maintenance is fairly simple and easy.

Just as you want to keep an eye on your tire pressure, oil, and other fluids, you’ll also want to check your brake fluid periodically. Brake fluid is vital for your brake’s functionality as it engages your brake disc when you push the pedal. Over time, your brake fluid will attract grime and moisture--especially in the summer months--and affects your braking ability. If your brake fluid is dirty, it’s a good idea to visit us for a fluid flush or refill.

Unlike some other areas of your car, it’s pretty easy to tell if your brake pads or discs are in need of replacement or repair. If you find that your car is shuddering or grinding when coming to a stop, this is an indication that your pads or discs could be worn or warped, and in need of replacement. Likewise, longer stopping distances and screeching sounds are indications that your brakes need attention.

As your Virginia Beach, VA Honda dealer, we’re fully equipped to service all areas of your car. Don’t take any chances when it comes to your safety and visit us today for brake service and parts like new brake pads and brake fluid flushing. Our expert technicians will address all your issues and get you promptly back on the road.
