What is automotive brake fluid? Great question. Brake fluid is the key factor in making your car come to a stop. Without brake fluid, your car will simply not stop at all, and failure to service your brake fluid regularly will result in malfunctions that can be dangerous if not addressed.

So, when you are driving down the road and pressing your foot on the brake pedal to stop, you are moving brake fluid through the brake lines to compress the brake pistons that are inside of each brake caliper. These pistons are what press together the brake pads to the turning brake discs, allowing for the car to come to a halt.

You must take the maintenance of your brake system seriously. Bring your car into Newbold BMW and we will do a full inspection on your brakes to make sure that they are completely reliable, and safe for you to go on your next adventure!
