Brake Repair and Service


The brake system in your vehicle is one of its most important safety features. Your vehicle’s brakes should be working in top condition at all times to ensure that you and your passengers will be safe on the road. If you notice even the slightest difference in the performance of your brakes, it’s time for an inspection.

If you suspect an issue with your brakes, we recommend coming into our shop as soon as possible. Brake failure can be extremely dangerous and it can often be avoided if repairs are made early on when symptoms start occurring.

The following are some common symptoms that indicate brake system problems:

  • Brake pedal feels spongy
  • Brake system light is on
  • Loss of brake power
  • Squealing/grinding noise when braking
  • Vehicle pulls to one side/shakes when braking

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, give us a call to make an appointment. Brake problems can be caused by a number of different components, and the repairs needed can range from needing new brake pads or rotors to replacing corroded or failing parts.

We also recommend that your brake system is serviced at least once a year to restore proper fluids and make sure that all parts are in proper working order. Regular inspection can help catch failing parts early on and is important when it comes to replacing old brake fluid that helps the system run smoothly and prevent corrosion.

  • Anti-lock brake system
