The brake system in your vehicle is an important safety feature that allows you to accurately slow down and stop your vehicle on the road. When it comes to the brake system, proper maintenance is key in order to protecting you and your family’s safety.

Brake issues can stem from a number of different components, but are usually due to worn down brake pads or warped brake rotors. Our experts will thoroughly inspect your vehicle’s brake system to determine if any parts need replacement or service in order to get you back on the road safely.
Common brake problems include:
- Low brake fluid
- Faulty master cylinder
- Caliper issue
- Warped brake rotors
- Worn brake pads
Regular brake service is a great way to avoid costly brake repairs and to ensure your safety on the road. We recommend having your brake system inspected at least once a year as routine maintenance. Brake fluid always needs to be topped off and clean to help the proper transfer of power to your brakes.
A disc brake system includes brake pads, rotors, caliper, and wheel hubs. When you press down on your brakes, power is transferred through the calipers and initiates the brake pads to clamp down over the brake rotors which will then slow your tires. Over time with regular use of your vehicle, the brake pads will wear down and the rotors can become warped. Warped rotors should be resurfaced or replaced along with heavily worn brake pads.
Signs that you may need new brake pads or rotors include:
- Brake pedal requires more pressure than usual
- Loss of brake power
- Screeching noise while braking
- Vehicle pulls to one side while braking
- Vehicle vibrates or shakes while braking
