Fortunately, your brake system’s health and function are largely in your hands. With regular maintenance and the readiness to address problems immediately, your brakes will work as they should for years.

  • The brakes have to be pumped to work properly
  • The brake pedal feels unusually soft and spongy or hard
  • Brake fluid is leaking around the wheels or engine compartment

By calling for an appointment as soon as you discover issues, the problem can be immediately dealt will. This will keep every drive safe and help you avoid a needless expense.
