10% Off Dot 4 and Dot 5 Vw Brake Fluid with Code NOV1113 - Expires on 11/30/13


Changing your Vw's brake fluid is recommended and most conveniently done when performing Vw brake rotor or pad service. Did you know that in a 3 year period (average of 15,000 miles a year) drivers depress the brake pedal approximately 225,000 times? Brake fluid is made of a glycol oil base which inherently attracts moisture from the atmosphere. Overtime the brake fluid becomes more contaminated with moisture, changing it's composition and affecting it's ability to stop the car. It also lowers the boiling point of the fluid. This is dangerous and decreases the car's stopping power in emergency stopping situations, where high temperatures are generated from the hot rotors and pads and then into the brake calipers (which function using brake fluid). Vw brake fluid flush should usually be performed every 30,000 miles or 3 years. This is especially important in parts of the country where high humidity is common. Check the owners manual or look at the brake fluid reservoir cap for recommended spec.

Using the correct type of brake fluid is important. Ravenol DOT 4 and DOT 5.1 Vw brake fluid meets necessary fluid specifications. Ravenol brake fluid's additive formulation provides the best braking characteristics in all conditions and offers full lubrication in ABS systems, hydraulic braking, clutch systems, and gives reliable performance in everyday driving or in the frequent braking conditions of extreme stop-and-go city driving.
