You get used to your brakes. How they sound, how the pedal feels – and how quickly they stop your vehicle. Then one day, your brakes just aren’t the same. Your brakes sound funny. Your pedal feels funny – and you need to press it farther. Worst of all, it takes longer and longer to come to a stop.

When you come in for any brake problem, we conduct a thourough inspection of your brakes. Then we take the time to thoroughly explain your vehicle’s condition and tell you which problems are urgent.

Types of Brake Service we offer

  • Brake Pad Replacement – for routine brake maintenance
  • Brake Rotor Repalcment - to complete your brake pad replacement. We’ll smooth out brake pad wear if necessary, or recommend new rotors if you need them.

  • Brake Drum Service – similar to brake rotor service, for drum style brakes.
  • Brake Repair – to all parts of your brake system, from the power brake booster to the parking brake assembly.
