Every Volkswagen requires routine brake fluid exchanges for reliable braking and enhanced safety. Volkswagen drivers have options when it comes to who performs routine brake fluid maintenance, but many drivers trust us because they have peace of mind with certified service completed by certified technicians and genuine OEM parts. Schedule a brake fluid exchange service today at Douglas Volkswagen in Summit, NJ.
Brake fluid is a chemical solution preferred by the automotive industry for its hydraulic property – it transfers energy efficiently without compressing under extreme pressure. Brake fluid commonly found in all automobiles also contains lubricants to help it move freely throughout the braking system while keeping the components cool. The major brake fluid limitation is that it has a hygroscopic chemical property; it accumulates moisture when exposed. Brake fluid requires exchange maintenance because accumulating too much moisture leads to the moisture boiling into vapor inside the brake lines. Water vapor will compress inside the braking system to cause poor hydraulic performance.
Brake fluid exchange services are recommended by time rather than mileage. This is because hydraulic brake fluid does not wear out depending upon the severity of use but from environmental exposure. Brake fluid will absorb moisture from the air in the form of humidity. Volkswagen generally recommends brake fluid exchanges every 2 years no matter how many miles traveled due to brake fluid’s chemistry and risk.
It is also wise to know the bad brake fluid indicators because powerful braking is ultimately a safety consideration. We recommend getting the brake fluid inspected and exchanged as needed in response to these warning signs:
Brake fluid exchanges include a complimentary multi-point inspection that helps drivers stay on top of vehicle risk while enhancing reliability and safety.
