What is Brake Fluid & Why is it so Important?

Brake fluid is an important component of your vehicle mostly because your brakes won’t work without brake fluid. At Mercedes-Benz of Fort Wayne, we want you to be an informed driver who knows how to take care of your car and provide the regular maintenance it needs to perform well for you. Come to see us, and allow us to offer some helpful car maintenance tips, including the importance of brake fluid.

Brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, is the non-compressible fluid that makes the many parts of your car’s braking system work when you put your foot on the brake pedal. Brake fluid flows through the brake lines and to the brake routers on each corner of your vehicle. Without brake fluid, your vehicle would not stop.

If your brakes aren’t working as they should, it could be you’re low on brake fluid, or it could be a number of other brake-related problems. Stop at our shop and let us service your vehicle.
