When it comes to maintaining your vehicle’s brakes and braking system, here are a few helpful tips:
- Check your brake fluid level and all hardware components every 12,000 miles/12 months or sooner if extensive driving or towing is involved.
- Change your brake fluid every 30,000 miles or according to your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
- Inspect your brake hoses for brittleness or cracking.
- Check brake linings for contamination from the brake fluid or grease.
