Reliable Brakes For A Safe Ride

Your brake system is important in achieving a safe auto experience. But most people tend to treat lightly the fact that without proper brake service, you can just smash into things! Truth is, when you keep a car for the long haul, brakes normally undergo wear and tear. This is the reason why all car brakes need as much attention as you would give to design and appeal. But how do you exactly determine the need for a brake service? If you are not confident on how your brakes work or don’t feel safe when you apply them, then you probably need some professional help. Knowing the common signs of a faulty brake system and acting on them when spotted keeps you from more expensive repairs.

Some indications of a brake problem include:

– Brake pedal feels squishy and sinks to the floor
– Vehicle pulls to the right or left when braking
– Steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied
– Vibration after stepping on the pedal
– Brake squealing or whining
– Brake part is making a clunking noise

Our Brake Services

Installation of new brake pads or shoes: Brake pad replacement is one of the most common services for brake systems. These pads stop the vehicle by applying pressure on rotors or drums (in other cars) and therefore have the greater tendency to wear out over time.

Resurfacing or replacement of brake rotors or drums: Brake rotors also cause problems as they take pressure from the brake pads. The rotors and/or drums need to be resurfaced or replaced especially when pads were not replaced early enough.

Resurfacing or replacement of brake rotors or drums: Brake rotors also cause problems as they take pressure from the brake pads. The rotors and/or drums need to be resurfaced or replaced especially when pads were not replaced early enough.

Brake fluid change: Low brake fluid is a result of worn disc brake pads or a leak in the brake system. Brake fluid change then allows for fully functional brakes and an overall safe driving experience.

Brake bleeding: This is a procedure done to remove air bubbles from the pipes and hoses containing the brake fluid. With brake bleeding, the hydraulic pressure from within the system is improved, enhancing the brake performance with it.

Replacement of brake lines, hoses and other brake components: All these components should be inspected especially for any leaks. Any leak can be dangerous as it can cause brake failure. Thus, the defective component should be changed to keep your safety and that of the motorists.
