Arguably the most important safety feature on your vehicle, brakes use fluids and friction to bring you to a safe, sure stop. However, constant stress and heat can wear down individual components and affect your braking feel and stopping distances if not quickly serviced. Here we’ll do an overview of the brake system repairs we can perform for your Kia or any other brand of vehicle sold in Canada.

To schedule brake maintenance for your car, truck, or SUV, please call our Mississauga car dealership service team at 1-888-651-1987 or book online using our handy online form.

Brake Inspection

Having your brakes inspected not only brings peace of mind (particularly when there seems to be a change in braking operation), but will also save you money in the long term by preventing support parts from getting damaged and prematurely failing.

When to get a brake inspection

  • Your brakes consistently make squealing or other unusual noises
  • Stopping performance seems worsened
  • Your brake pedal is pulsating
  • The ABS or brake warning light appears on the dash
  • The emergency brake won’t hold your vehicle in place

This service includes

  • A road test performed by a certified auto technician
  • Full inspection of brake hardware (calipers, pads, shoes, rotors, or drums, lines, and fluid), plus emergency brake parts
  • A copy of our Brake Inspection Report that goes over all the components checked and estimates for any work needed, if necessary

Brake Fluid Flush

Brake fluid allows the pressure from your foot to transfer all the way down the lines to initiate your brakes and make a safe stop. But constant heat, pressure, and moisture reduce the effectiveness of your brake fluid over time.

When to get a brake flush

  • Your brake pedal has developed a less firm, “spongy” feel when pressed

This service includes

  • A road test to evaluate brake functioning
  • Brake system flush to remove impurities with up to 1L of new fluid included
  • Comprehensive brake components inspection (with further work/part estimates, if necessary) provided to customer

Brake System Diagnosis

The ABS (anti-lock braking system) on your car prevents the wheels from locking up so that you can maintain handling control under hard braking or slippery conditions.

When to get a Brake System Diagnosis

  • The ABS or Brake Service light has appeared in your gauge cluster

This service includes

  • A road test to evaluate brake functioning
  • Hooking up to your car’s OBDII computer to check and assess thrown codes
  • Comprehensive brake components inspection (with further work/part estimates, if necessary) provided to customer
