Brake Repair & Services

Faulty brakes are the cause of over 20% of accidents due to mechanical failure. That’s second only to tires. And unlike tires, you can’t easily check brake wear on your own.

Don’t wait until the little squeaks become big squeaks and the grinding noise turns into an accident. Instead, check your vehicle in with our brake experts. We’ll make sure your brakes, pads, shoes, rotors, callipers and hydraulic system are all in good shape.

Brake Issue Warning Signs

You know your vehicle best so you will be the first one to suspect that there is something wrong with your brakes.  Before the tell tale squeal, you may feel a change when you press the brake pedal down.  People describe it as a “spongy feeling”.  The most common reason is air in your brake system but it could be caused by:

  • old or low brake fluid
  • damage to your brake line
  • wear and tear to the cyclinder
  • damaged disc brake calipers

Our Complimentary Multipoint Inspection

With most car repair services where we put the vehicle on the hoist, you’ll receive our Complimentary Multipoint Inspection. We’ll look inside, outside, under the hood and underneath the car.  We will then explain the findings and give you a written report.  It is a good way to identify issues that should be addressed before they turn into major repairs.


Our Multipoint Visual Inspection includes the following:

Front End Inspection

Ball joints, tie rods, coils, shocks, struts, wheel bearing, control arms, sway bar links and tire pressure.

Underbody Inspection

Visual check for leaking fluids including the steering rack.

Brakes Inspection

Front and Rear pads and rotors, visual inspection of the pad life and brake rotor health, visual check for leaks in brake lines

Tire Health

We check tire depth, pressure, and look for any cracks or uneven wear.


We visually check the exhaust for any holes and broken or weak brackets in pipes or muffler.


Visual inspection of belts, battery and check fluid levels.
