What Our Mechanics Look At When Inspecting Car Brakes

During a brake inspection, we look over every part of your brake system to ensure it’s running properly. That way you’re taking preventative measures and keeping the effectiveness of your car brakes optimal. Beyond brake maintenance, we also offer brake repair services. Sometimes driving conditions may have caused wear and tear on your brakes, a bump in the road, anything really, can cause your brakes to lose their effectiveness. It can be something minor like a simple part being replaced or a major overhaul of your entire brake system. 

Frequently Asked Questions

A brake inspection goes over every part of your brake system tailored to the make and model of your car. Some of the parts that are reviewed during the inspection include: brake pads, brake rotors, brake hardware, brake cables, brake fluid, and more.
While many people often wait until their brakes are difficult to use or they give off a strange sound, it is better to take preventative measures now to save a big expense later. One way to do that is through having a complete brake system inspection. Thankfully, you don’t have to get them checked too often to make sure they are performing properly. We recommend once a year to maintain properly functioning brakes.
There are many parts to a car’s brake system, but more often than not hearing a weird sound likely indicates that your brake pads have worn out. This can be caused by a number of conditions such as consistent stop and go traffic, weather-related wear and tear, like humidity, and even dust can tamper with your brake system. To identify the root of the problem we always recommend starting with a brake inspection.
