Even though we have mild winters in Florida, summer driving is different for us because of even more intense heat than other areas. That, in addition to dust and pollen, can really strain your vehicle in multiple ways. One component that you should always be aware of are your brakes. FIAT of Winter Haven invites you to our service center for a brake check to make sure everything is in working order.

Before you bring your car in for service, note any strange responses. Brake trouble can be made apparent by several warning signs, such as

  • Squealing or squeaking
  • Vibration while driving
  • Fluid leaks
  • Spongy or soft brake pedal
  • Car pulling to one side while braking

If you’re noticing it takes longer to stop in your FIAT car, or if your vehicle bounces up and down when you stop short, it’s important to schedule an appointment sooner rather than later.

As you cruise around in your FIAT 500 and start to hear or feel the signs of brake problems, it’s usually one of a handful of issues. The brake pads could be worn out, which is very common for front brakes. Squealing brakes are a possible indicator for this issue. Another possible culprit could be a warped rotor. Leaky brake fluid is one of the most severe problems, as it can lead to sudden brake failure. If you get in your car and the brake pedal pushes to the floor, a leak may have occurred.

No matter what the cause may be, we have the tools and resources to provide exceptional service on your brakes. And thanks to our fully stocked parts center, we can set you up with new brakes, brake pads, or anything else that you may need.

Our FIAT service center is here to help with all your brake needs. We proudly serve drivers in the Lakeland, FL area and look forward to working with you soon. To set up an appointment, give us a call at 888-252-4339 or utilize our online tool.
