Comprehensive Brake Care in Your Neighborhood

Your brakes are one of your vehicle’s biggest safety components. They allow you to halt the forward momentum of your car or truck quickly and effectively, ensuring that no matter where you go, you can stop at traffic lights and round corners with ease, all without slamming into the vehicle in front of you. However, when your brakes are bad, a dangerous situation can be inevitable.

Warning signs & common brake problems:

There are a variety of symptoms that will tell you something is going awry with your brakes, including:

  • A squealing or squeaking sound
  • Grinding when you come to a stop
  • Shaking steering column
  • Spongy brake pedal
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side when you brake
  • Your car wobbles or vibrates when driving at highway speeds

Typically brake problems stem from worn brake pads or rotors. When you stop, your brake pads create friction to help slow your vehicle, while your rotors disperse heat to prevent your brakes from overheating. Both pieces are essential when it comes to functioning brakes. Fortunately, if either of these pieces are damaged, we can replace them.

You may also be experiencing brake problems because of low brake fluid. This fluid is responsible for turning the force you add to your braking system by pushing the pedal into amplified pressure that will actually slow or stop your vehicle. It also protects the internal metal components of your brakes from corrosion.

How We Can Help

As your partners in automotive care, we service your brakes as thoroughly as possible, conducting a full inspection before determining and fixing the problem.

While inspecting your brakes, we check the following:

  • Brake Pad Thickness
  • Calipers
  • Brake/Hydraulic Fluid (Level and Condition)
  • Brake Hoses–these wear out often, and need to be checked regularly for wear and tear
  • Brake Hardware
  • Rotor Ware

When servicing your vehicle, we always provide you an upfront summary of everything that needs to be fixed, including a parts and labor cost-breakdown. Your vehicle repairs are always your choice, and we will never do anything without your consent.

Driving Habits and Preventative Maintenance

You can extend the life of your brakes–including pads and rotors–through regular maintenance and by adjusting your driving habits. Be sure to service your brakes as soon as you experience any symptoms and replace your brake fluid as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. Reduce wear and tear by avoiding stop and go traffic and minimizing your vehicle load.
