We all procrastinate. And most of the time it doesn't hurt that bad. But with your car's brakes do you really want to take a chance?
Stop and think about it. Do you really want to take a chance that your car won't stop?
Maintaining your brakes is quick and pretty painless. Repairing your brakes doesn't take too long either, but depending upon how many brake parts are destroyed or mangled because of procrastination, the expense can be significant. Either way, our ASE Mechanics are brake pros and can take care of your car's braking systems.
As the trusted custodian of your vehicle, we send out email reminders to you when our computer estimates that your mileage is ripe for brake maintenance. We urge you not to procrastinate (but we'll be here for you if you do . . . )!
What we do for Routine Brake Maintenance
For routine brake maintenance, which is something that should be looked at every 30,000 miles:
- we'll get your car up on the rack,
- pull the wheels,
- review and check your car's fluids,
- inspect the brake pads thickness, evenness of wear, and examine them for glazing,
- we'll check the rotors to see if they need resurfacing, and
- we'll check the sensors,
- and tail lights
to ensure everything is in proper working order and within manufacturer's suggested operating tolerances. After our examination we'll make a recommendation and provide a price quote. We're usually able to perform this brake system review within about 20 minutes.
We're only committed to, and interested in, a long term relationship with you and your vehicles. As such, it is in our mutual best interest to only recommend what you need now, suggest future repairs, and identify other areas that you can safely defer (and our 30 years history of multi-generational customers within families gives good testimony to that commitment!). So you can have confidence in our recommendations, and you can trust that we are going to maintain and repair your vehicle "as if it were our mothers", only serving what is needed, and serving it well.
If your brake systems look good, we'll give you an estimate of when you should come back for a brake job. In general, we usually see two front axle brake jobs for every rear axle brake job, which makes sense in view of the engineering design on most vehicles where most brake stopping pressure is centered on the front brakes.
What we do for Brake Repair
If your brakes have worn through your brake pads, our technicians will remove your old brake pads, resurface the rotor, lube the calipers, and examine all the other fittings and brake lines to renew them during the brake repair process.
We install high quality OEM parts performed by highly trained and extensively skilled experienced mechanics.
- We will not sell you what you don't need.
- We will not rush through your brake job and overlook an important detail.
- We will not use cheap parts with dubious specifications with sketchy life expectancy and undocumented efficacy.
- We will not employ uncertified mechanics paid on a commission basis, always looking for additional things that your vehicle "needs repaired today".
- We will not compete or be priced at unsustainable "special offers".
Why? Because your brakes are the most important system on your vehicle and stopping is the most vital function your vehicle performs. You and your family are worth doing it right.
So, if you've read through to the bottom of this posting, perhaps its time to look at your odometer and think back . . . . has it been 30,000 miles or more since a professional ASE certified mechanic has inspected your brakes?
