A fully functioning brake system is important to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. Your brake system involves highly engineered parts and precise movements that stop your vehicle by converting kinetic energy into thermal power. When you press down on your brake pedal, the master cylinder pressurizes a system of the hydraulic brake lines leading to each of the vehicle’s tires, where brake pads pressed against a disc or drum and create the necessary friction needed to slow the vehicle to a full stop. Over time while driving, this friction and heat have the potential to wear down the brake shoes, brake pads, callipers, brake rotors, and other braking components.

Bad brakes display warning signs for coming brake maintenance. For example, if your brake grinds or squeals when in use, then your brake pads may be worn and require replacements. If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking, then this may point to worn brakes, a malfunctioning calliper, or low brake fluid in the brake lines. If your brake pedal presses down too easily—also known as “ too spongy” brakes—then this may be an indication of too much air got in the hydraulic brake lines. Sometimes, your vehicle’s diagnostic system will alert you to a potential brake issue by a service indicator light on the dashboard also known as a “check engine light”. While these are only some of the most common signs of potential problems with your vehicle’s brake system, noticing these signs of faulty brakes and seeking out a brake service can save you money down the line. Our employees are trained in maintaining and servicing front and rear brake systems and all accompanying brake system components like brake pads, rotors, brake shoes, parking brakes, drums, and hydraulic systems.
