If you’re unfamiliar with the different components of brake maintenance, bring your new Dodge Grand Caravan into our Bemidji, MN dealership today.

Here are the five most important aspects of brake maintenance:

  • Replace the brake fluid in your brakes. This is crucial for ensuring that your brakes perform properly and all of the inner parts are lubricated. Clean fluid is vital to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your car’s brakes.
  • Brake rotors and pads inspections. Having these specific parts of your brakes inspected on a regular basis is key to maintaining brake health and avoiding an accident due to malfunctioning brakes. In addition, these specific brake parts undergo the most stress and therefore need to be replaced more often.
  • Change your driving habits. Simple things like avoiding riding your brakes, not slamming on your brakes with every stop, and keeping the weight load on your vehicle as light as possible will all help make your brakes last longer.
  • Bleed your vehicle’s brake lines. These task helps to release any air that gets built up over time in your car’s brake system. This build-up of air can make braking more difficult or ineffective. We recommend you bleed your car’s brake lines every two to three years.

Our Bemidji Chrysler parts department advises drivers to have their brake pads and rotors inspected every 12,000 miles, and; their brake fluid replaced every 25,000 miles. When it’s time for a brake inspection, bring your car in to our Chrysler dealership serving Park Rapids, MN.
