Honda designed a premier brake system on your vehicle that provides the stopping power to each wheel location when you want to stop your vehicle. The Honda Brake System has several vital parts that get this job done including the brake pedal, master cylinder, brake lines, calipers, brake pads, drums, or rotors. These components work alongside each other to provide adequate stopping power to each wheel to reduce stopping distance and maximize your passenger safety. If you have a problem with one of these parts, you will start to experience one or more of the symptoms of needing a Honda Brake System Fluid Exchange & Flush Service.
The blood of your Honda Brake System is Brake Fluid that is a hydraulic liquid that transfers force from the brake pedal through your calipers, brake pads, and then the rotors to stop your vehicle as needed. If you want to slow your vehicle down on the interstate or lock your brakes up to prevent a collision, it is your brake system and hydraulic Brake Fluid that gets the job done. The critical limitation of all brake fluid is that it absorbs water over time that reduces its boiling point. When contaminated, the brake fluid can begin to boil under pressure and won’t be able to do its job properly. When this happens, you’ll notice a decrease in stopping power and an increase in distance required to stop your vehicle. Since you need to stop your vehicle quickly in the event of an emergency to prevent a collision, we strongly encourage all Honda owners to schedule a routine Brake System Fluid Exchange & Flush Service.
The Brake System Fluid Exchange & Flush Service at Rolling Hills Honda is much more than a Brake Fluid Exchange & Flush. The service also includes a comprehensive inspection of your entire brake system and all of its vital parts to identify any signs of wear and tear. If any signs of wear and tear or faulty parts are found, this gives you the opportunity to fix the problem before it gets worse. Many times a brake fluid flush reveals metal-on-metal friction from faulty brake pads. The problem gets corrected before the caliper and rotor is damaged. A Brake System Fluid Exchange & Flush Service is a great way to get you fresh brake fluid at peak performance but also a great proactive measure for the long-term maintenance of your entire brake system.
