Some of the maintenance services you need for your Volkswagen are easy to overlook, especially with so much emphasis on oil changes and tire services. However, your brake fluid, strong as it may be, will start to break down, requiring a brake fluid exchange service.
In your brake system, there is a brake fluid reservoir holding the brake fluid that is cycling through the system. During the service, a certified technician will flush the old brake fluid from the reservoir and make sure it is out of the system. Once removed, the brake reservoir will be filled with new brake fluid and then run through the system so that the fresh fluid is cycling through. Our technicians will test the brake system to ensure all is working before releasing it back to you.
This service is something that needs to be done periodically, especially as you add more miles to your Volkswagen. Over time, the amount of fluid will diminish due to use and evaporation. It will also start breaking down from the particles and dust being carried through the system. The fluid acts as a filter but will start to break down very much like a filter when it is full and has absorbed too much. If you do not have enough fluid or have quality brake fluid, your brake system overall will be impacted.
Your brake system requires this fluid to function, so if you are not at least adding more to it periodically, you will run out of brake fluid. Without the fluid, your anti-lock brakes will freeze up, and you could lose control when driving. In addition to your safety, the repairs you will have to make on your brake system will cost substantially more. All of this is avoidable with a simple brake fluid exchange service that is done in a matter of minutes by the service center.
