Toyota models are known for their impressive safety, and the brake system is one of the key safety features in your vehicle. Since the braking system is vital to your safety, it’s best to ensure that the brakes are kept in top condition. We can help at Beaver Toyota of Cumming, serving Sugar Hill and Buford.
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that transfers the force of your foot on the brake pedal to the calipers, amplifying the force to provide exceptional stopping power. It’s also a hygroscopic fluid, which means that it absorbs moisture. Over time, this moisture will make it less effective. To stay safe, you will need to have the brake fluid exchanged regularly.
As you use your brakes, the brake lining on the brake pads will wear down. If you let it get too thin, the metal backing may press against the brake rotors, causing damage. This is why you should have your brake pads changed regularly.
Although the brake rotors last longer than the brake pads, they too will eventually wear down over time. When this happens, you will need to have the brake rotors replaced. However, they may become warped or glazed while still being thick enough to function. In cases like these, the rotors can often be resurfaced rather than replaced.
It’s a good idea to have your brakes inspected regularly. When you come to Beaver Toyota of Cumming for this service, our technicians will check the brake pads and brake rotors to ensure that they still have sufficient thickness. In addition, they will inspect the brake lines, the brake calipers, and the master cylinder.
