Brakes

Your KIA Brake Specialists

Your vehicle’s brake system is a critical element of your vehicle’s safety. It is essential that your brakes are in proper working order at all times.

Braking systems operate using a hydraulic system. Applying pressure to the brake pedal sends brake fluid throughout the vehicle’s brake system activating parts that create friction to stop or slow down the vehicle. Any weak or worn points in the brake system, such as hoses, seals or other hydraulic components, could result in fluid leak and possibly a catastrophic failure of your vehicle’s brakes.

The factory-trained technicians at KIA Victoria are specially trained in KIA parts and service. They will calibrate your brake system to the exact specifications that will make your vehicle perform like new. Our brake technicians will accurately and expertly assess any issue with the brakes on your KIA and prescribe the most efficient solutions.
To avoid costly repairs or brake failure, it’s wise to have your brakes checked by a qualified technician annually. Our certified technicians will do both a visual and hands-on analysis of the brake’s systems and will provide detailed information on the recommended work. Contact us for an appointment if you need your brakes inspected.

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.
