Get Your Kia Ready for Spring Driving With Brake Service

Get Your Kia Ready for Spring Driving With Brake Service

You know what they say, "April showers bring May flowers." We're all excited for spring, but it can often bring wet roads because of rain and melting snow. Are your brakes ready to slow you down on the wet spring roads in Calgary? This is the perfect time to get your Kia ready with brake service.

Do you recognize the symptoms of worn out or damaged brakes?

  • Your brake pads should be at least a quarter of an inch thick. Any less, and they've worn down beyond the safe level.
  • Grinding brakes usually means that your brake pads have totally worn down, and your caliper and rotor are rubbing together.
  • Squealing brakes is pretty normal on wet road conditions. But consistent squealing all the time can be a built in indicator that you need brake service.
  • A soft brake pedal (meaning it takes more effort for the brakes to engage) can be a result of low brake fluid, or it could mean something more serious is going on.

If you catch your brakes with any of the above issues, come into theService Center at Eastside Kia. Our technicians can inspect and service your brakes with skill and precision, and have you driving safely on the Chestermere, Red Deer, Okotoks, and Canmore roads. Schedule your appointment today!
