How Christian Brothers Automotive Can Help

Identifying Brake Issues

Don't ignore the warning signs! Your brakes may exhibit various symptoms indicating potential problems. Stay attentive to the following indicators:

  • Squealing or squeaking sounds
  • Grinding noise when coming to a stop
  • Shaking or vibrations in the steering column
  • Spongy brake pedal
  • Pulling to one side when braking
  • Wobbling or vibrations at highway speeds

Common brake problems often stem from worn brake pads or rotors. These crucial components require regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance. If needed, our experienced technicians can replace worn brake pads and damaged rotors promptly and efficiently.

Addressing Low Brake Fluid

Low brake fluid can cause issues with your braking system's performance. This vital fluid helps convert the force you apply to the pedal into amplified pressure, ensuring effective braking. It also plays a role in protecting your brakes' internal metal components from corrosion. Our team can inspect your brake fluid level and condition, recommending replacement as necessary to maintain peak performance and safeguard your braking system.

Our Approach to Brake Service

At Christian Brothers Automotive Irmo, we prioritize your safety and satisfaction. When you entrust us with your vehicle's brake service, you can expect comprehensive care and transparent communication every step of the way. Our thorough brake inspection covers the following key areas:

  • Brake pad thickness assessment
  • Caliper examination
  • Brake/hydraulic fluid level and condition check
  • Regular inspection of brake hoses for wear and tear
  • Evaluation of brake hardware
  • Assessment of rotor wear

We believe in empowering our customers to make informed decisions. Before proceeding with any repairs, we provide you with a detailed breakdown of the necessary fixes, including a transparent cost analysis of parts and labor. Your consent is vital to us, and we will never proceed with any work without your approval.

Extending the Life of Your Brakes

Maximize the lifespan of your brakes, including pads and rotors, through responsible driving habits and regular maintenance. Consider the following tips:

  • Service your brakes promptly when experiencing any symptoms
  • Follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations for brake fluid replacement
  • Minimize stop-and-go traffic and excessive vehicle loading to reduce wear and tear on your brakes
