You rely on every part of your car, but none more than your braking system. It does not matter how well your engine runs or how much tread is on your tires – if your brakes are not working properly, you are not safe behind the wheel.
Whether you need routine brake system maintenance or major repairs, the expert staff at CarFix has you covered. We are your braking system experts, and we provide a full range of brake system services and repairs.
Brake Pad Replacement
The braking system on your vehicle contains a number of replaceable parts, including your brake pads. As you drive and apply the brakes, your brake pads start to wear out. As those brake pads wear out, they increase the wear and friction on your drums, calipers and other parts of your braking system.
When your brake pads start to wear out, the metal on metal contact creates a squealing sound – one that you should not ignore. Modern braking systems are designed to provide this auditory warning, so you can replace your brake pads before any damage occurs to your vehicle. If you hear a strange noise when you step on the brakes, it is time to give CarFix a call. We can schedule a thorough inspection of your braking system, so you can drive away with confidence.
Inspection of Discs and Rotors
Whether the vehicle you drive uses drum brakes or disc brakes, your braking system needs regular maintenance and inspection to keep you safe behind the wheel. If you are due for your New York State inspection, part of that examination will involve your braking system. If there are problems, the staff at CarFix can make recommendations. If your braking system is working properly, we will let you know that as well.
It is important to have your braking system checked for safety, so just bring your vehicle into CarFix. We will inspect the discs, rotors, pads, calipers and other moving parts, so you can maintain the stopping power you need.
Diagnosis for Brake System Leaks
The braking system in your vehicle is a closed loop, and even a small leak could compromise your stopping power and your safety. If you think you have a leak, you should not delay a thorough inspection.
CarFix can inspect your entire braking system, find the leak and fix it fast. A leak in the braking system is not something to fool around with, so give us a call and make an appointment today.
