The brake system brings your car from top speeds to a total stop.
It does this despite any extra factors or unpleasant weather conditions. This huge task has to be done as efficiently and safely as possible.
With all your brakes go through, it’s nice to know they’re in the best condition possible.
That’s why our ASE-certified technicians fully explain every detail to our guests so they understand the parts and requirements of the vehicle’s brake system. At Christian Brothers Automotive Grayson, help you stay safe on every drive. Here are a few aspects of the car’s brakes you need to know.
The brake system includes many parts
- Brake pads
- Brake booster
- Wheel cylinders
- Brake shoes
- Master cylinder
- Brake fluid
To keep your car running properly, every component must be working in sync. When you request a brake check with every oil change, our knowledgeable technicians can assess the brake pads, fluid and rotors. This ensures everything is up to our high standards.
Brake pads are essential to the system’s function
To stop a moving vehicle and avoid disaster, the brake pads must be at least 3mm (or 4mm on some cars). If your brake pads wear down thinner than this, or they’re cracked, our professionals may recommend a brake pad replacement.
When the brake pads wear away, they grind against the rotors and could cause damage to other parts of the car. When you hear a squealing or grinding noise, schedule a brake pad inspection.
At our expert automotive shop, you’ll find out the truth about your vehicle’s condition. Our staff does what it takes to keep you safe without creating a false sense of urgency.
