Modern braking systems are still composed of components like disc brakes, a brake pedal, calipers, brake pads, rotors, and a master cylinder. However, the more sophisticated braking systems of today's high-tech vehicles also include many sensors and even cameras that feed information to the brakes. Automatic emergency braking systems and sensors can sometimes go wrong just like more old-school components can. That's why our Stivers Hyundai technicians always upgrade their knowledge of the sophisticated high-tech brakes of the modern world. They're available to perform Hyundai brake repairs in Columbia all year long.
In layman's terms, a Hyundai's brake system stops the vehicle. That's the main purpose of brakes: to bring all energy to a halt in a way that keeps a vehicle's occupants safe. Many components contribute to this action:
That's a short list of everything that plays a part in bringing your vehicle to a safe stop. If anything goes wrong with these components, it's time for a visit to Stivers Hyundai near Columbia.
The brake inspection is a Hyundai owner's best friend. During this inspection, your brakes will have a thorough examination by a certified, factory-trained auto technician. Our checklist for brake inspections is one of the largest in the business. Customers get a world-class brake inspection. Here are just a few things that Stivers Hyundai does during an annual or semi-annual brake inspection.
Our service technicians will take your Hyundai vehicle for a test drive to check for any braking issues. Vehicles with brake problems usually make noises or have vibrations that shouldn't be there. A skilled technician can pick up on the issue quickly.
Sometimes an issue with a hose can cause brake problems. We check hoses and lines in the vehicle to be sure they're secure and sealed.
Brake pads and rotors are two of the most common reasons for Hyundai brake repair in Columbia. These components put in more work than others and will need replacement several times over a long vehicle's life. If your pads and rotors are worn, they're a very simple fix compared to replacing something like a master cylinder.
If brakes are worn or damaged, the brake pedal often tells the story. Soft or hard brake pedals should never be a part of driving. It can cause extremely unsafe driving conditions. During a brake inspection, our team always inspects the brake pedal and tests it during a drive.
Some people mistake wheel alignment issues with brake problems. To rule out suspension damage, we always inspect the suspension during a brake inspection.
