Your KIA Brake Specialists
When Should I Get the Brakes On My KIA Checked?
Once a Year or Every 20,000km
If it has been over a year or 20,000km since your last check, or you are past the recommended kilometers since your last brake fluid check, it is time to get a brake check. Even if there are no other warning signs, a brake check will be able to tell you whether there is unusual wear-and-tear or developing issues related to your brakes.
The Brake Pedal Seems Loose and/ or Requires More Pressure
Brakes have more natural wear on them than perhaps any part of a car. Every time you brake your vehicle, the rotor pad is faced with immense friction as it stops the wheel. Over time these pads will wear down and you will need to apply ever greater force to the brake pedal to stop your vehicle. If you notice this, make an appointment with your KIA Victoria brake specialist as soon as possible.
Unusual Vibrations or Noises During Braking
If your car shudders when you apply the brakes or you hear audible squeaks or other noises coming from the brakes, this is a signal the rotor pads or calipers need replacing, fixing or fluid added. Make an appointment with the KIA Victoria service centre and our factory trained technicians can diagnose the problem and present you with the most effective options to get your vehicle functioning properly.
