Common Signs You Need Brake Replacement

It is important to bring your vehicle in for brake service before the brakes become too worn or damaged. The best thing to do is to have our certified mechanics perform a full vehicle inspection. A convenient time to do this is when you come in for oil changes, tune-ups, or other types of maintenance work. It doesn't take long to inspect your brakes either. Even though the most accurate way to identify brake problems is by bringing your vehicle to an automotive professional, there are a number of signs you should pay attention to while driving. The following are common indicators that you may need brake replacement:

• Brake Pedal Feels Soft
• Brake Pedal Goes Down Too Far
• Dashboard Brake Light Is On
• Vibrations When Applying Brakes
• Squealing or Grinding Noise When Applying Brakes

 
Brake Rotor Resurfacing & Replacement

Your car's rotors provide a surface for your brake pads to "squeeze" when you apply the brakes. Similar to brake pads, rotors wear out over time. Sometimes, the rotors simply need to be resurfaced to ensure smooth-stopping power. However, if the rotors have worn too thin or are beyond repair, we provide rotor replacement. It is an affordable service too.
