The brakes are some of the most vital components of your car. Fluid within the brake system sends the pressure from your foot down to the brake pads or shoes. The liquid has also got a relatively high boiling point to withstand the heat caused during braking, and it contains chemicals that stop the whole system from freezing up during cold weather.
Brake fluid needs to be changed every 24,000 miles or two years to make sure the correct levels and quality are maintained. There is a correct 'type' of fluid for each make and model of car, and we will advise you on what is right for your Fiat.
The braking system will absorb water over time through normal driving, and this excess water lowers the fluid's boiling point and makes the brakes less effective. Air bubbles could also get into the system, stopping pressure from reaching the brake pads.
Testing and replacing fluid in your Fiat is just one part of the many aftersales services that we can provide. Our manufacturer-trained technicians work hard to support all of our customers throughout their ownership, and they know every model inside and out. Should you need any further advice, such as the best brands of oil and fluid to use, simply ask our team.
