Brake Fluid

Experts suggest that you wipe off brake fluid from any surfaces immediately. Why is this so? Is brake fluid caustic?

Glycol-based brake fluid is quite caustic. Glycol is also used in paint thinner; thus, if you spill brake fluid on your beautiful luxury automobile finish, it might destroy it. This is also a reason why some antique car owners are turning to silicone-based brake fluid. That does not ruin finishes.

If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of brake fluid, then simply bring your car into our dealership. We have the protective clothing and facilities to keep everything beautiful. The other sneaky element of glycol-based brake fluid is that when new, it is clear. Thus, it looks like water.
