Does your brake pedal feel soft when you step on it? Get your brake fluid checked.
When you step on the brake pedal and it feels soft, it’s common to think you may need your brakes looked at. However, it may mean that you need your brake fluid flushed. When air gets in to the brake fluid it causes braking to feel soft and reduces how effective the brakes work. Depending on what your vehicle recommends, it is most common to have the brake fluid changed every 24,000 miles or every 36 months. Be sure to refer to your owner’s manual for what is best for your car.
