Frequent brake inspections are recommended for safety and knowing when essential braking parts are due for maintenance. Certified technicians check overall braking performance and inspect critical braking components, including fluid, pads, rotors, calipers, lines hardware, and master cylinder. Always get a prompt brake inspection if you notice your vehicle taking longer to stop, hear strange noises from near the wheels, or the dashboard brake system light illuminates.Learn More
Hydraulic brake fluid transfers stopping power from the master cylinder through the brake lines into the calipers that press brake pads into the rotors, generating the friction and resistance necessary to slow down and stop. Brake fluid is an excellent hydraulic but is limited by a hygroscopic property; it readily absorbs moisture that threatens hydraulic performance, explaining why brake fluid needs exchange service every two to three years regardless of miles.Learn More
Brake pads are pressed against the rotors attached to the wheels. They wear down incrementally and require replacement service when measuring no less than 3mm. Since they often wear down at variable rates depending upon wheel location, and customers want to get the most life out of their brake pads, we offer replacement service as needed for the rear, front, or all brake pads.Learn More
Brake rotors are steel discs with a flat surface area creating resistance. New rotors have a perfectly flat disc with the maximum surface area available for creating maximum resistance. Older rotors with wear and tear do not have the maximum surface area available. Resurfacing service restores rotor disc flatness by removing minor wear and tear. Rotors with excessive depreciation or warping need replacement service to restore factory specifications.Learn More
