Brake Pad and Rotor Replacement
Your safety on the road depends on your car's full stopping power. If you hear grinding or squealing noises when braking, it's likely that your brake pads need replacement. In some cases, replacing the rotors may also be necessary to fix vibrations or score marks. Our expert auto mechanics will inspect your brakes to determine the necessary repairs needed to keep you and your passengers safe. With our brake service, you can trust that your brakes will be working at their best.
Brake Fluid Flush
In addition to brake pad and rotor replacement, it's important to remember that your car's brake fluid can also affect its performance. Over time, the fluid can accumulate flakes and moisture, leading to rust and deteriorating rubber valves in parts like the master cylinder, calipers, and wheel cylinders. To maintain maximum brake performance, it's crucial to flush your brake fluid periodically.
The frequency of brake fluid changes recommended in your car's owner's manual varies by manufacturer. At our auto shop, our experienced mechanics have access to repair and maintenance information for most car makers. We'll ensure that your car's brake fluid is changed according to manufacturer specifications, so you can drive with peace of mind knowing that your brakes are in top condition.
