Brake fluid has an important function in the braking system of your vehicle. Brake fluid transfers the force of applying the brakes to brake components that push your brake pads against your rotors to stop your vehicle. Brake fluid also serves as a lubricant for the braking system. Another thing it does is prevent corrosion. Like any vehicle fluid, brake fluid can degrade over time. As brake fluid degrades, it loses its ability to carry out these important functions.
When a brake fluid exchange service is performed, the brake fluid reservoir is emptied out. Then, it is refilled with new brake fluid. This restores the condition and effectiveness of the brake fluid in a vehicle.
You need to know how often a brake fluid exchange is necessary. You can discuss the maintenance schedule of your particular vehicle model with your mechanic. Another source of information to consult regarding your model’s maintenance schedule is your vehicle owner’s manual. You’ll most likely find that brake fluid exchange is recommended around once every 30,000 miles.
When you have a brake fluid exchange or any other vehicle service performed, it’s best to go to a factory-certified facility. At Cutter Buick GMC, we are factory certified. This means that our mechanics are accustomed to working on Buick GMC vehicles. If you’d like to learn more about the advantages of coming to us for service, check out our website.
