Indications your vehicle needs brake repair

Unfortunately, if you leave brake issues unattended to, the repairs are usually more expensive. Any reputable shop will stress that you have your brakes inspected annually or as soon as you notice any of the following conditions –

• Your brake warning light comes on when you are driving
• You notice a grinding or squealing sound when brakes are applied
• Your vehicle’s rims and wheels begin appearing dirtier than usual
• You feel a pulsation or sponginess when applying your brake pedal
• Your vehicle starts shaking or pulsing when braking?

Why is regularly scheduled brake service is essential: the one word answer is safety! In order to effectively stop your vehicle on demand, your vehicle’s brakes should always be in operating order and not worn down to the rotors. We highly recommend having your brakes inspected at least twice a year. The next time you are in for an oil change, just ask us to run an inspection! Considering that this is a system that you rely on daily, it is essential that you make sure not to ignore any sort of issues. Remember, the longer you wait to rectify your braking issues, the more expensive the repairs will usually be. 

Brake Components & Services We Provide

Anti-Lock Brake System
Your vehicle’s Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensures that the wheels don’t stop rotating during braking. This prevents the car from skidding and gives the driver greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Discount Muffler, Brake & Automotive as soon as possible. We’ll give your vehicle a FREE inspection. 

Brake Hoses & Brake Fluid
A vehicle’s brake hose is a tube that carries pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. If there’s a crushed hose, that can cause a lagged or slow brake. A leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire braking system, to fail. This doesn’t mean that a brake hose needs to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear and tear. Over time, air can get into brake fluid which can make it become corrosive. Ask one of our experienced technicians today about having your brake fluid flushed.

Hands down, this is the best mechanic I have ever been to. My whole family has been going her for years. Joe is an extremely honest and knowledgeable professional. He has gone out of his way to pick up my elderly parents when they were stranded and has made trips to help them out. One could only wish to have an amazing mechanic and business like this. His daughter and all other associates are extremely professional and helpful! I only wish other businesses could model after Discount Muffler Brake & More!
