When to schedule an appointment for a brake check?

It’s a good idea to schedule a brake service if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • You hear a grinding noise when you hit the brakes

  • The brake (ABS) light on your dashboard is illuminated

  • The pedal has a sponge-like quality when you press down

  • Your brakes are slow to respond

How often should I have my brakes inspected?

Regular brake inspections are recommended under most vehicle manufacturers' recommendations, usually at 12,000 miles. This will ensure vehicle safety and cost-effective repairs. The recommended repairs depend on the manufacturer's specifications and the existing state of the brake linings and other key components.

How long does it take for my brakes to be replaced or repaired?

It only takes an hour or two to replace or repair brakes. Brakes can be replaced in under an hour if your vehicle is sediment free and not too rusted. Replace brakes can take longer for rusted vehicles or vehicles with sediment build up. No matter how stuck the brakes are, we have the right tools and equipment to change them out.
