To get your Volkswagen’s brakes in top shape so they can effectively slow your vehicle when you need them most, our certified VW technicians strongly encourage routine preventative maintenance. This is especially true for your brake fluid, which flows through your system. It requires a periodic exchange with fresh fluid, which we can complete for you quickly and accurately at Faulkner Volkswagen in Mechanicsburg, PA. We first drain the contaminated brake fluid from your system for this service, then flush it to remove residual debris. We will then add fresh brake fluid that is appropriate for your model to an optimal level.
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that provides the necessary pressure to slow down your vehicle by flowing through the system. It needs to flow freely to the various components within your braking system to function in sync. By exchanging your brake fluid with fresh fluid when contaminants have built up, you can ensure the optimal performance of your brakes, extend the life of the entire system, promote even brake wear, and improve the handling of your Volkswagen while braking. You can increase the performance of your braking system and help protect you and your loved ones with a simple service.
If you haven’t had your brake fluid exchanged recently, our certified technicians warn against putting off this critical maintenance service. Its contaminants and debris build-up within the brake fluid and can cause the fluid to thicken into a sludge-like material. This can coat the components of your braking system rather than allowing their free movement. This can prevent your brakes from working properly and could cause damage to the system’s internal components. Avoid damage and unsafe driving conditions by sticking to the manufacturer-recommended exchange interval for your brake fluid.
When you come in for brake fluid exchange service at Faulkner Volkswagen’s service department, you get the benefit of our extensive expertise and long-lasting parts that are backed by a manufacturer warranty.
