Is Your Brake Pedal Soft? Here's Why

A properly functioning brake pedal should feel firm when your foot presses upon it. In other words, you won't have to press down hard in order to get your vehicle to stop on the streets of Oakfield. When you press hard, that's the sign of a soft brake pedal.

Common causes of a soft brake pedal are air in the brake line or damaged brake line. For the first, a process called bleeding takes care of it. In the second, the brake line becomes corroded by rust, allowing fluid to escape, and must be replaced. Other common reasons include bad disc brake calipers, bad wheel cylinders or a worn master cylinder.

All of these reasons can pose a safety issue. Let the certified service technicians at Crazy Cheap Cars perform a full evaluation to diagnose the cause of your soft brake pedal. We'll have your car running like new again in no time.
