We recently discussed tire care on this blog, but you also want to keep an eye on your brakes this summer. Fortunately, we can help with brake upkeep.

Obviously, you want your brakes to be responsive. This is especially true during the summer, where you may be taking longer trips than normal. Before you embark on your next adventure, it pays to make sure that your brakes are in top shape.

Your brakes aren’t just one part. There are many components that make it possible to bring your car to a stop and we can examine all of them. There’s the brake fluid reservoir, which needs to be filled if you want more responsive brakes. There are also the brake rotors and the brake pads–two per rotor. Over time these can wear down as the brake pedal is pressed, so you’ll need some qualified technicians to take a look at them from time to time. Other parts include the brake lines, calipers, and master brake cylinder. We’ll make sure that all of them are in top shape.

Brake maintenance is so important because responsive brakes make it easier to avoid accidents. That doesn’t just keep you safe–it also helps you save money. Even a slow-speed collision or “fender bender” can cause some expensive damage. Instead of risking it, make sure that your brakes are working well at our service center.

So if you want to make sure that your vehicle is in great shape this summer, visit our Honda dealership and service center. Our expert mechanics can help you tackle automotive problems big and small. We look forward to assisting you!
