To ensure that your vehicle is a safe mode of transportation, your brakes should be in optimal condition. A brake pedal should feel firm if it is functioning properly, and a soft brake pedal may be a sign that your brakes are in need of service.

One cause of a soft brake pedal is air in the brake line. The only substance that should enter the brake line is brake fluid, so if air gets in, it can cause problems. Other problems that can cause soft brake pedals include a damaged brake line, bad wheel cylinders, bad disc brake calipers, and a worn master cylinder.

If your vehicle's brake pedals are showing any of the aforementioned signs, contact our service department at Hendrick Honda Hickory. Our skilled technicians are ready to provide you with assistance.
