What is a “complete” brake service?
It is a brake job that does not leave essential things undone to save time and/or money. We are speaking about items like rebuilding/replacing calipers and/or wheel cylinders with high mileage, replacing disc and drum brake components, resurfacing or replacing rotors or drums, replacing the brake fluid and bleeding all the lines, checking and adjusting the parking brake and also checking the ABS system if applicable.
Overlooking these type of items may have no immediate affect on how the brakes perform initially, but it may down the road. That means the difference between a complete brake job that lasts and one that doesn’t. We will ensure that a “complete” brake job is performed correctly.

Is It Important To Get My Brakes Serviced?
Properly working brakes are vital to vehicle safety and reliability. When you press down on your brake pedal and stop your tires from spinning, you need the confidence to know that your vehicle will come to a complete and precise stop.
Brake pads, shoes, drums, and rotors are made of components that wear down from heat and friction, even under normal driving conditions. These same wear issues can also affect the brake’s hydraulic components including calipers, wheel cylinders, and brake hoses. The failure of any of these components can lead to costly repairs and loss of braking.
When should I get my brakes checked?
It’s important to have your brakes checked at least once a year to keep them responsive and to help avoid costly repairs. Have your brakes checked immediately if you suffer from any of the following:
- Your brakes are constantly squeaking or grinding
- Your brake or anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light comes on
- Your car pulls to one side when braking
- You have to pump your brakes for them to work effectively
- Your brake pedal feels abnormally spongy or hard
- You see brake fluid leaks near the wheels or engine compartment
