Indications your vehicle needs brake repair

If brake issues are left unattended to, the repairs expenses can add up. Any reputable auto mechanic will stress that you have your brakes inspected each year, or as soon as you notice any of the following conditions –

• Your brake warning light comes on when you’re driving
• You hear or feel a grinding or squealing sound when brakes are pressed
• Your vehicle’s rims and wheels start looking dirtier quicker than normal
• You sense a pulsation or sponginess when pressing your brake pedal
• Your vehicle starts shaking or pulsing during braking?

Why is it crucial to schedule regular brake service? Simply put, safety! In order to effectively stop your vehicle on demand, your vehicle’s brakes should always be in top operational order, not hampered with brakes that are worn down to the rotors. We even highly advise having your brakes inspected at least twice a year. The next time you are in for an oil change, just ask us for an inspection! You rely on your braking system on a daily basis, so it’s essential that you make sure not to neglect any sort of issues. Remember, the longer you put off the time to rectify your braking issues, the more costly the repairs will usually be. 

Brake Components & Services We Provide

Anti-Lock Brake System
Your vehicle’s Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don’t stop rotating while braking. This helps to prevent the car from skidding allowing the driver greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Discount Muffler, Brake & Automotive as soon as possible. Come in for a FREE inspection for your vehicle. 

Brake Hoses & Brake Fluid
A brake hose is a tube that carries pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake. A leak in the hose can cause the brakes, or the entire braking system, to fail. This doesn’t always mean that a brake hose needs to be replaced frequently, but it will need to 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 knowledgeable technicians about having your brake fluid flushed today.

Amazing, quick and friendly service. I am very pleased with experience I had here. They took the time to explain the issue with my exhaust system, showed me the area under my vehicle, and explained how they were going to fix it. This place was such a breathe of fresh air to someone who is clueless about auto work…lol.

Roger did a fantastic job installing a custom exhaust on my ’67 Pontiac LeMans. Factory look and sound. Ashley was great to work with. I highly recommend this shop

Honestly THE BEST car shop I’ve ever been to. There’s a lot of options in Palatine, especially on Colfax, but you do not want to pass up on this shop. They’re super friendly and patient, extremely fair pricing, and they’re exceptionally knowledgeable. It’s like going to get your car fixed by family; you can trust you’re getting a good job done with a fair price! Thank you guys so much!!

Katelyn D.

Needed a entire new exhaust system on my Ford. They replaced it and did a incredible job!! The truck used to roar down the road and sputter. Now its smooth and quiet!! Top notch! Will use again!!
Alex D.

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!
