What Is Brake Fluid?

When you're barreling down the highway at sixty to eighty miles an hour, you need to know your car can stop on a dime. If your brake system is compromised on any level, your safety could be at risk.

When you press the brake pedal for a stop, the system engages the brake fluid to put pressure on the rotors. When that pressure isn't applied, or isn't applied at top performance, a slow brake could result. The less your car stops as you expect, the more likely an accident can occur. When moisture gets into the brake fluid, it breaks down the chemical compounds and makes the fluid ineffective. A brake fluid change is routine and simple.

The service department at BMW of Anchorage is specialized in diagnosing and changing brake fluid on many makes and models. Stop by if you're at all concerned about your brake system for a full checkup.
