  • Why do I need this service?

    Brakes are a normal wear item for any car. Eventually, they’re going to need to be replaced for both performance and safety reasons. Don’t let your brakes get to the “metal-to-metal” point, requiring more expensive rotor or drum replacement. Your owner’s manual might specify periodic flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system. Contaminated brake fluid can lead to corrosion and other problems in the hydraulic system, especially on cars with anti-lock brakes (ABS).

  • How do I know when I need new brakes?

    First, check for wear by looking at your brake pads through the spaces between the wheel’s spokes. The outside pad will be pressed against a metal rotor. Generally, there should be at least 1/4 inch of pad. If you see less than 1/4 inch of pad, you may want to have your brake pads inspected or replaced
