Why are my Hyundai’s brakes so important?
We all know that every part of your vehicle is important, but your brakes may be one of the most important as they play a big part in keeping you, your passengers and others on the road safe. If your Hyundai’s models are compromised in any way, whether it is regular wear or serious damage, it can lead to dangerous driving situations where you cannot stop in time. There are many parts of your braking system that can be part of the issue if your brakes need to be serviced, they include the calipers, brake pads, rotors, and brake fluid. Our service advisors and technicians can help devise a plan to get your brakes in tip-top shape.
How do I know if my brakes need to be serviced?
Your Hyundai model, whether you drive a Sonata or a Santa Fe, will let you know when your brakes need to be serviced or replaced. There are a number of audible and visual indicators to be aware of and we had our team come together to help you out. They are:
Trouble coming to a full stop in any situation
The brake pedal feels either much too easy or much too hard to push down when trying to stop
You can hear loud screeching or grinding noises when you do apply the brakes
You notice metal shavings or flakes, potentially even rust, falling off your brakes in the driveway or parking lot
And lastly, the brake service light turns on in the dashboard
Can Apple Valley Hyundai help me keep my brakes in good condition?
Of course we can! When you bring your Hyundai model in for a routine oil change or tire rotation, our mechanics and technicians will look over your brake system to ensure that it is in good working condition. If your brakes do need to be serviced, they can send that information to our service advisors who will help you create a new appointment to get them taken care of as soon as possible. There are also a number of things that you can do to help take care of your brakes outside the service department. Adjusting the way that you drive, like easing on and easing off the brakes rather than slamming can help extend the life of your brakes with ease. You should also avoid riding your brakes and increase the following distance between you and other vehicles to make more room to stop slowly.
