Winter Brake Maintenance in Peachland

May 25,2022

Icy roads and snow can have a dramatic impact on your Ford’s handling and stopping distances. Why make driving more challenging with poorly functioning brakes? Instead, prioritize your safety and other drivers this winter by maintaining your car, truck or SUV at Skaha Ford in BC.

Municipalities use rock salt to prevent water from turning into ice on roads and in parking lots, but this contributes to the corrosion of automobiles and braking systems. Over time, salt builds up on the brakes and can lead to uneven or premature wear. This impacts braking performance and safety and can lead to expensive repairs in the future.

Snow and ice also affect a vehicle’s ability to stop when extra moisture saturates the braking components and leaches into the fluid. When excess wetness seeps into the braking system, it can create a dragging sensation when applying pressure to the brake pedal. Moisture in the brake fluid can also extend a car’s stopping distance, leading to difficulty stopping and unsafe vehicle operation.

Your brakes are a critical safety feature on your Ford, and they require regular inspections to spot any damage or repairs. Call our Service Department in BC to schedule a brake service with our experts.
