Understanding Your Brake System

Driving 60 mph, with properly functioning brakes, it could still take 100 yards (the length of a football field) to completely stop.

If your brakes are compromised in any way, it’ll take more time.

Don’t risk your life by ignoring brake system maintenance.

The dedicated professionals at Christian Brothers Automotive Frisco West want you and your passengers safe. That’s why we want our customers fully informed about all aspects of system upkeep.

When to schedule a brake inspection

Our ASE-certified technicians suggest a brake assessment with every oil change. This guarantees the brake pads are the right width and brake fluid is at the proper level.

Our specialists recommend full system service annually, but you should call for a brake check any time you notice a squealing or grinding sound, the car jerks or hesitates while braking, or your car pulls to one side.

If you neglect your brakes, they'll begin to wear on other parts of the car. This will eventually necessitate more costly repairs.
