Soft or Spongy Brakes? It's Time for Service

Your brakes are one of the most important safety features in your car so it's important to have any changes checked out right away. If you notice your brakes are soft or spongey instead of feeling firm when you apply them it's time to have an expert auto technician diagnose and repair the problem before it becomes a safety hazard.

Air in the brake lines is a common culprit with soft brakes. This can be addressed by bleeding the lines and ensuring that only brake fluid is flowing through the lines. Or you may have a leak in the brake line that needs to be repaired. More significantly, corrosion inside the wheel cylinder, master cylinder, or brake caliper may be at fault. Rust corrosion can result in small holes forming in these parts, especially in older vehicles, which negatively affects brake performance.

Before these problems get worse, let our experienced auto repair team at Lithia Fiat of Concord ensure your safety by evaluating and repairing these any other issues you may have to keep you and your vehicle safe.
