Brakes are without a doubt one of the most important safety feature of any vehicle. Even in the modern age where so many automakers are focused on putting cameras and intelligent features in vehicles, few items are more important to the safety of a vehicle and its passengers than the brakes. If your brakes fail, the chances of injury are exponentially increased. Our service team at Lithia Toyota of Odessa is well-trained in making sure brakes are ready for the challenges of the road.
Some of the indicators that your brakes are on the edge are as follows :
If you're experiencing any of these regularly, the time has come to get your brakes inspected and repaired. You'll also want to keep an eye out for brake fluid leaks -- brake fluid is a yellowish, clear oil -- and a spongy-feeling brake pedal. Both of these symptoms are signs of more severe brake issues that require attention as quickly as possible.
We can also perform basic brake services, like caliper slide lubrication and even brake fluid replacements. You see, brake fluid is hydroscopic, meaning it retains water, and over time it needs replaced or the water can cause the brake lines to corrode from the inside out. Water in the lines also reduces the boiling point of the brake fluid, which can result in damage to the seals.
