Brakes are one of the most important parts of automotive maintenance. When you step on that brake pedal for an emergency situation or a stop sign you expect the vehicle to stop. That’s why routine brake inspections are so important for the safety of you and others. Today’s brake systems are very complex with numerous components and an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), which is controlled by the vehicle’s computer system. It’s not as simple as “just throwing on a set of pads and rotors” Servicing brake systems require specialized tools and training to properly and safely repair and maintain them.
The quality of brake parts is also very important. At Areawide Automotive we only use the highest quality brake parts. Sure you can find inexpensive (cheap) brake parts at those chain retailers but there is a reason that professional repair shops do not use them. Poor quality brake pads will wear out sooner, squeak, make brake dust (that black stuff that gets all over the outside of your wheels) and will require longer stopping distances which could be dangerous. Brakes are such an important function on a vehicle that you should never skimp on quality. You will find our prices very fair and competitive.
Our complete brake service includes: Replacing the brake pads or shoes, cleaning and lubricating the surfaces with a high quality ceramic lubricant, replacing or resurfacing the drums or rotors as needed, inspecting the hydraulic system, calipers, master cylinder, wheel cylinders and ABS system. The vehicle is then test driven for proper function after the repair is completed.
