BRAKE REPAIRS

How often do I need to get my brakes checked?

It is recommended that brakes be repaired and adjusted by a professional at least once a year. The brake system consists of various components which require brake fluid to keep them lubricated. When you maintain and repair your brakes regularly, you can be sure that your brakes will function properly at all times. If your car does not have functioning brakes, it cannot slow down or stop.

By design, brake components are made with materials that gradually wear out due to friction, and need to be replaced. When brake pads wear out, they put pressure on other components of the brake system, such as rotors, drums, and calipers. Damage to any of these components will be costly to repair.

Your vehicle’s braking system is one of its most crucial safety features, so it is extremely critical that you maintain it and stay on top of repairs. We can assist you with all aspects of vehicle repair and maintenance including car, truck, and SUV brake repair.
