Come in Today Modern Brakes Are More Sophisticated and Don’t Need Brake Repair Modern brakes are more sophisticated, so you don’t need to check your brakes or replace them. We actually had to blink at this myth that one of our customers told us. While brakes are made of more high-tech materials than they used to be, and are more durable, they are still mechanical components that can wear out or break. If it were possible to make brakes that didn’t wear out, the inventor would doubtless be very rich. This leads us to our next myth.

There are a lot of myths about brake repair. This article will cover these misconceptions and clear them up.

Scheduled Auto Maintenance Part 1: Know Your Owner’s Manual

When do I need to do scheduled auto maintenance? Should I worry if I pass a deadline for auto maintenance? Can’t it wait? When Do I Need to Do Scheduled Auto Maintenance? There’s a reason the title of this article includes the words “know your owner’s manual.” A lot of people in America never even crack open their owner’s manual. And then they end up bewildered when their car breaks down and the auto mechanic gives them bad news. However, if you check your owner’s manual, you can see the timetable for every sort of maintenance that your car needs. From normal wear and tear items such as brake repair and tires to engine and power train components, everything in your car has a recommended time period to get preventative auto maintenance done.

What Do I Do If My Brakes Are Squeaking Part 2: The Daily Grind

Part two of a series on brake service explores what to do if your brakes are squealing or in this case, grinding. What Does it Mean When My Brakes are Grinding? Let’s say you’re driving along. You come up to a stoplight, and hit your brakes. Then you both hear it and feel it: a distinct grinding sensation. But what does it mean when your brakes are grinding? It means that you need to get your car into a brake repair shop immediately. Why? Well, brakes have pads on them. Whenever you hit the brake pedal, you’re applying a bit of pressure to your brake pads. When you hear nothing, it means your brake pads are in good condition. When they start to squeal, it means that your pads are wearing out, and when you hear grinding, it means only one thing. You’ve worn your brake pads out, and are grinding into the rotors themselves. Why You Can’t Wait to Fix Grinding Brakes With grinding brakes, picture your repair bill. It ... read more
