Brake Pad and Rotor Replacement
Your car must have full stopping power to keep you safe. If your brakes are grinding or squealing, it is usually an indication that your brake pads need to be replaced. In addition to replacing your brake pads, rotors may need replacement to fix vibration occurring when braking or if score marks are visible on the rotors. Our auto mechanics will inspect your brakes to determine the repairs necessary to fix your braking issue. Our brake service keeps your brakes working to keep you and your passengers safe.
Brake Fluid Flush
Over time your car’s brake fluid can accumulate flakes from parts like rubber valves deteriorating in the master cylinder, calipers and wheel cylinders. Also, moisture can get into the system which causes rust that can mix into your brake fluid. The brake fluid in your car should be flushed periodically to maintain maximum performance.
Brake fluid should be changed using the frequency recommended in your car's owners manual. Our auto mechanics have access to repair and maintenance information for most manufacturers. We’ll make sure that your car is maintained according to manufacturer specifications.
