Are Your Brakes Working Safely?
It’s almost unfathomable to think that thousands of pounds of mingling steel, aluminum, and plastic, on wheels, can come to a complete stop, only by pressing on a pedal. And although that might sound unnerving, if you maintain the brakes on your vehicle, you don’t have to be worried about your vehicle’s stopping power.

Do Your Brakes Need Servicing?
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a warning light on your dash to signal brake trouble just like the check engine light? Good thing most vehicles are equipped with this type of a heads-up feature. If the brake warning light is on when you start driving, check and see if you mistakenly left the parking brake on. If you’re out cruising along and the light comes on when you press on the pedal, do yourself a huge favor, pull over, and contact our repair shop. We can help with what to do next. You don’t want to take any chances if the master cylinder fluid is low or there’s a loss of hydraulic pressure. Other signs you may need to have your brakes serviced are a soft and squishy feel or grinding, squeaking, and squealing noises when applying the brakes. Wobbly vibrations while braking is another indication of brake trouble. Don’t put yourself or anyone else in an unsafe situation. Any sign of brake distress should have you contacting your automotive repair shop without hesitation.
What’s Involved in Brake Repair?
The first step to be taken before any auto repair is a thorough inspection. If your brakes are struggling, our mechanics will likely need to replace the brake pads and rotors, change the fluid, and bleed the brake line. If there is considerable damage, your vehicle may need a complete brake replacement. At Affordable Auto Repair Services, we inspect, diagnose, and discuss options with our customers. Our goal is for the people in our community to know they have a dependable car care team that offers honest feedback, reasonable prices, and quality work.
