Common signs your vehicle needs brake repair

If you put off addressing your vehicle’s brake issues, the repairs can be more costly. Any reputable auto shop will suggest that you have your brakes inspected every year, or even sooner if you notice any of the following conditions –

• Your brake warning light comes on while you are driving
• You notice a grinding or squealing sound when applying the brake pedal
• Your rims and wheels begin look dirtier than normal
• You feel a pulsation or sponginess while braking
• Your vehicle starts to shake or pulse while you’re braking

So why exactly is regularly scheduling brake service such a big deal? In a word: Safety! In order to effectively stop your vehicle, your vehicle’s brakes should always be in top condition. not worn down to the rotors. We even advise having your brakes inspected at least twice a year. This is easy to do. The next time you’re in for an oil change, just ask us and we’ll gladly run an inspection! Considering that this is a system that you rely on every time you get behind the wheel, it is very important that you make sure not to ignore any sort of brake issues. Remember, if you wait to address your braking issues, the repairs can be more costly. 

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 helps prevent the car from skidding allowing the driver greater control. If your ABS light comes on, stop in to Discount Muffler, Brake & Automotive as soon as you can and we’ll give your vehicle’s system 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. It’s of upmost importance that this hose isn’t crushed because that can cause a lagged or slow brake. A leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. A brake hose isn’t something that necessarily needs to be replaced very often, but it should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear and tear. Otherwise, air can get into brake fluid over time which can cause it to become corrosive. Ask one of our skilled technicians about having your brake fluid flushed today.

They fixed my brakes and gave me an oil change for a very reasonable 316$ they did good work I’ll definitely be going back in the future if I need something highly recommended.
Matt J.

These guys just saved me $1500 on an exhaust manifold repair. I was quoted by another shop they would have to pull the engine to replace broken manifold bolts. Discount muffler fixed them by other means. THESE GUYS ARE AWESOME! Great to have an honest shop to rely on. Will return for all my service.


I spoke with Ashley a couple of times before bringing my car in and she was super helpful. We determined that someone had cut the pipe and stolen the catalytic converter. Discount Muffler was able to custom shape a pipe to replace mine at a substantial discount. I would definitely come here again!!

I had a flexible exhaust piece that had failed on my car. Discount Muffler and Brake in Palatine gave me a very low price quote in just 15 minutes. They then completed the job in about 90 minutes. Their work, which included a little bit of fabrication/welding, looked quite professional. I’m very impressed. As a side note their waiting area and bathroom is also very pleasant/clean.

Our daughter’s car need drive belts and front brakes. After getting quotes elsewhere, this company provided an expected reason price and did not demand necessary work be performed on the car. Joe even drove my wife to and from his place of business! They replaced the tie-rod (front passenger side) of which was suspect of being an issue prior to bringing the car to them.

They resolved all issues within a day and our daughter has her car back with reliable operations. So glad we learned about this place!
