How to Best Care for Your Brakes
Your brake system is the most basic safety function of your vehicle, but it’s also the most invaluable. Whether slowing down at a red light or stopping short in traffic, you rely on your brakes every second you’re behind the wheel. It’s vital to remain up to date on its regular service needs to ensure your brake system is always at its best. Routine inspection of your brakes where our team can confirm all components are in good condition is highly encouraged, such as the brake pads, brake rotors, brake calipers, fluid, and master cylinder. Over time, certain components require replacement due to wear, including the brake pads and brake fluid. Here in our auto repair shop, we offer brake pad replacement, brake fluid exchanges, and brake bleeding, which is a rarer maintenance task that removes air from the brake lines. All our brake repair and maintenance services are joined by a free 56-point inspection to ensure the entire system is operating at peak capacity.

Symptoms of Bad Brakes
The more complex a system is, the more one small thing being out of whack can cause a cascade of problems. This includes the brake system. When something starts to go awry with your brakes, it’s important to be vigilant and visit our auto repair shop at your earliest convenience. What seems like nothing may turn out to be a big problem, which is why timely service is of the essence. A common sign of brake problems includes a screeching noise when you depress the brake pedal, which often points to worn brake pads. If you have to push your brake pedal down further to slow down and stop successfully, there is likely a fluid leak from the brake lines or an air leak from the hose. Are you feeling a vibration when you brake? Your rotors may be warped, which can be fixed by either replacing or resurfacing them; the latter is a process that removes a portion of the metal until the surface is smooth and even. Additional signs of bad brakes include grinding noise, squealing, reduced stopping power, and increased stopping distance. Of course, if your brake warning light or check engine light comes on, come in. As soon as you start to experience one of the above symptoms, make an appointment with our brake repair specialists by phone or on our website.
