Why It's Important to Have Your Brakes Serviced 

Brake Pedal

Each time your foot pushes down on the brake pedal, you're expecting your vehicle to stop at a quick rate, keeping both you and your passengers safe. In order to maintain this performance of your brakes, you will need to have them regularly inspected, including getting parts replaced when they become too worn. 

Having Your Brakes Serviced near Fairlawn 

When you choose to have your brakes serviced at our service center, you'll be happy to know that your car is in excellent care while it's in the hands of our expert technicians. Rest assured that they'll do a comprehensive inspection of your brakes, which will allow them to accurately judge the quality and condition of each component of the braking system. 

In particular, they will look at the brake pads or shoes to see if they're wearing evenly, and measure their thickness to see if they need to be replaced. They'll also make sure there aren't any leaks within the system, and they'll check the rotors for any hot spots and run-outs. On top of that, they will test the hardware, check the brake fluid levels and condition, and inspect the calipers. 

If anything does need to be replaced on your new or used car, they will do so with OEM parts to ensure that your brakes are built out of only the highest-quality parts. You will also be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi in our waiting room while we work on your car's brakes, or you can take advantage of our shuttle service if you need to get back home.
