Tesla vehicles are a marvel of engineering, and being electric vehicles, are also a model of simplicity. Many automotive services – oil change, transmission service, spark plugs replacement – simply do not apply. But one of the familiar services – brake fluid replacement – applies to EVs just as much as it does to conventionally powered vehicles.
Adams Autoworx provides Castro Valley Tesla brake fluid replacement service for all Tesla owners. We recommend brake fluid replacement every two years. Naturally we will check brake fluid quality before replacing it – if it turns out that it is in good shape, we will recommend another visit for the brake fluid replacement. But a regular brake fluid check should become one of your Tesla rituals.
Brake fluid is highly hygroscopic – it absorbs moistures – and when the moisture content of the brake fluid exceeds design parameters, it may cause difficulty braking, or in extreme cases, total brake failure. Tesla, like all EVs, is a heavy vehicle, due to the weight of the battery pack, so brake system functioning flawlessly is a must.
While we are testing quality of the brake fluid, we can also look at the brake pads, rotors, and brake calipers – if they require cleaning and lubrication, we can perform this service during the same visit. All services and repairs performed at our Castro Valley auto care facility are covered by 3 year / 36,000 mile nationwide warranty.
So next time your Tesla is due for brake fluid replacement, bring it to Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley. You will find a clean, modern facility, friendly customer service, and technical excellence. We offer online appointments, or call us at the shop to make an appointment, and we will be happy to take great care of your Tesla.
