Is Your Brake Pedal Spongy or Soft?

If you've ever experienced a spongy brake pedal before, you understand the feel - pressing down on the brake feel similar to pressing your foot on a sponge. The brake pedal won't have as much resistance as it previously did and it will feel as if your brakes won't stop with as much power. 

A spongy or soft brake pedal is actually a common brake issue and can happen with other vehicles. This symptoms is caused by air in the brake system which can happen due to improper bleeding, brake fluid loss, or a low fluid level. 

If your brake pedal is spongy, our experts will inspect the brake system to pinpoint the exact cause of the issue. Usually, we will bleed the brake line of all fluid and add more fluid after any appropriate issues are repaired.
