Warning Signs for Brake Service

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.
