Brake Repair and Service
Your brakes are a crucial part of your vehicle. Often times, drivers get used to the way their car feels and may not notice when brakes are reaching a critical point and need to be replaced.
In general, if brakes begin to make a squeaking sound that is a sign that they are in need of attention. Other signs that your brakes may be failing are a decreased responsiveness, a pull to one side when braking, a vibrating or pulsing brake pedal, or a grinding or growling type sound.

Brake Pads are a key component of your vehicle's brake system. The pads contact and apply pressure to your cars brake rotors. The friction and pressure applied to the brake is what makes the car stop. Thus, when the brake pads wear down it reduces your vehicle's ability to stop. Our trained technicians use a wear indicator to check brake pads for thickness.
The rotor is what your vehicle's brake pads clamp down on to stop the wheels from spinning. Rotors are subject to wear and tear, corrosion, and dust. Dirt on the rotor can cause lower brake efficiency or cause brakes to be out of alignment. In order to ensure your brakes function correctly and optimally a brake lubricant is used by our technicians. The lubricant will help reduce noise and give longer life to your brakes.
Brake fluid must work perfectly under high temperatures and pressures for brakes to perform optimally. There are often dirt particles that get into the brake fluid as well as moisture. These can cause rust to flake off into the fluid resulting in decreased breaking performance and damage to the expensive brake parts. A brake fluid flush prolongs the life of calipers, wheel cylinders and the brake master cylinder and helps to ensure the safety of you and your passengers.
