It’s best to get a brake check before your Kia Sephia shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Kia, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.

You know your Kia Sephia better than anyone else. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check.
