Brake repair

Brakes are one of the most important items to keep maintained on your vehicle. Brakes are not only responsible for your safety, but the overall well-being of your vehicle. If you let your brakes go unchecked for too long, it can lead to costly repairs.

 

Why Brake Maintenance is Important

Brake Pad Reliability

If the brakes do not work, your car will not be able to stop in time. This can lead to anything from small fender collisions to major accidents, neither of which is worth the risk. Regular maintenance of the brake helps to ensure that the brake is engaged every time the brake pedal is depressed.

Brake Pad Noise 

Nobody and we mean, NOBODY, likes the sound of metal on metal grinding when you stop. Outside of the dangers associated with worn brakes, the pure noise will become annoying

The Cost of Old Brakes

 If properly maintained, high-quality brakes can be used for long periods of time.  However, factors such as driving conditions, weather, and frequent use can cause the brakes to deteriorate. For example, you can extend the service life of the brake by replacing the surface of the brake disc. However, when it is too late, you will have to replace the brakes prematurely.
