Why is My Brake Pedal Soft?

Does your brake pedal not respond the way you think it should? A soft or spongy brake pedal occurs when you have to press it hard to get sufficient action to stop your vehicle. The problem doesn't lie with the pedal itself, but with something in the braking system connected to it. Here are some possible problems.

A problem with the brake line is often the culprit. Air that sometimes finds its way in will cause the pedal to operate inefficiently. The problem is simple to fix via a process called bleeding. More serious is a damaged brake line that has rust, corrosion of holes, which can lead to a loss of hydraulic fluid.

Whatever the ultimate problem is, bring your vehicle into the service department at Interstate Hyundai. Our expert technicians will carefully examine your brakes, find the problem and repair it quickly to keep you safe.
