Stop and Check Your Brakes



Brake Safety Awareness Month in August is the perfect time to have your brakes checked to make sure they are in safe working condition before summer ends and the school year starts, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they're going to need to be replaced. A vehicle's braking system should be checked at least once a year and a thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.



A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle operation and control under a variety of driving conditions. Motorists can put a stop to any potential brake system problems by recognizing the signs and symptoms that their brake system may need maintenance or repair.



If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, they should be inspected. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.



Several factors affect brake wear including driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair, such as letting the brakes get to the "metal-to-metal" point, which can be potentially dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.

    This guy is honest and a stand up business man. He could have done a $450 job and never told me my truck had a manufactures defect. I have come here in the past and had the same experience. Thank you for being honest. Scott

    Yesterday, I called this auto shop, and Christine was very helpful in providing some requested information. As a result, I decided to come in to have my car fixed here. I really appreciated James' and her transparency and helpfulness. They met me where I am. I could tell they are honest people seeking to perform an honest day's work. They exemplify the spirit of the American entrepreneur/small business owner, and I walked away as feeling like a human being. I would definitely recommend supporting this business.

    We were passing through and the muffler started sounding really bad. It was 20 mins to closing before a four day holiday weekend. We were in and out and had our broken muffler fixed by the owner free of charge. Thank you!
