Get your brakes replaced - the right way

Brakes are safety feature #1 on pretty much any car. That's why we emphasize high quality parts on every brake service, backed by our 1 year, 12K mile warranty and performed by a skilled technician with a decade (or more) of experience.

Your brake pads and rotors are the common items to be repaired on most vehicles. When you press the brake pedal, the brake fluid compressing, squeezing the brake pads against the rotor and creating friction. If your brake fluid is contaminated, it might not compress as much, and make it harder for you to stop. Over time, the brake pads lose their friction-creating material and are just stripped down to metal (NOT a good way to create friction!). The rotors can also wear out and become "thin" or "warped" with extra use, which can create vibrations for you when you try to brake.

Of course, those aren't the only brake components - they're just the ones that most frequently require replacement. As your vehicle experiences more wear and tear, you might also want to inspect:

  • Brake calipers, which (as you can see in the image above) help squeeze the brake pad against the brake rotor
  • Brake line, which helps hold the brake fluid
  • Brake fluid, which is typically recommended to be replaced every two years or 24K miles by the manufacturer
  • Brake shoe or drum, which predates the pads and rotors. Although the systems work differently, you can think of the shoe and the pad, and the rotor and the drum, very similarly. Older vehicles typically have drum brake systems, especially in the rear
  • And of course, there's more!
