Brakes are probably the most important component of your car. They enable your vehicle to stop whenever necessary, and prevent accidents. Without properly functioning brakes, you might be in for a scary ride. Don’t be caught unprepared for the time they don’t protect you.
With the changing seasons, or increased travel demands, you may find yourself relying more heavily on your car’s braking system. Don’t assume your brakes are fine, or wait until there’s an issue. Educate yourself on what indicates a problem with your brakes.

When deciding whether or not to schedule a brake repair service, there are some symptoms to consider.
Do you hear any of the following:
These sounds indicate a problem with your brakes pads, which can in turn lead to other brake problems. The brake pad lining wears, causing the metal backing to contact the brake disc, which causes overall wear and damage to the brakes.
If your brake pedal shakes when engaged, this may be a sign of bad rotors. It is also important to feel if your car pulls to one side when braking. Pulling indicates a bad caliper or uneven brake pad wear, which can result from uneven distribution of pressure in the brake lines.
If a problem is discovered, we will discuss repair options with you. Repairs are performed professionally and in a timely matter, getting you back on the road in no time.
