    Default civic 2004 vti brakes issue

    I have owned 2004 vti oriel, from the past few days i am experiencing that after driving the car for about 15 to 20 km, my brakes performance goes down specially when i apply slow pressure on brake pedal not sudden. The pads physically seems ok. braking fluid is also up to the level. What would be the possible causes for this issue? Please note that this issue not emerges from the start but after some KMs of driving.

    1. does the pedal feel very soft and goes down till the floor ? if yes then probably your brake master cylinder is gone but first check for any air leaks in all 4 wheels and bleed the system under pressure to remove air. if all is ok , then...
    2. go for genuine brake pads as these ones are either expired (too old) or build quality is bad and when they heat up they loose the grip.
    3. also check the discs for any scratches or marks. its good to have them faced as its a 2004 model car.
    after all leaks are ensured not to be present......
    4. Drain the entire brake oil as its too old now and it looses its efficiency and also its more likely to be mixed over with other brands over the time period. check user manual for correct viscosity brake oil or get honda genuine and re fill.
