Brake Inspection

Approx. Time: 30 Minutes | Price Range: Get Quote for Price

You’re driving down the road, and the traffic light turns red. You let up on the gas, gently apply the brakes, and the car slowly comes to a stop. It’s no wonder that most folks think that brakes stop the car. Actually, the brakes only stop the wheels. Think that’s just a matter of semantics? Ask anyone who’s ever slammed on the brakes, only to end up sliding through the light and right into oncoming traffic.

Braking is a carefully constructed balance between the brakes and the contact between the tires and the roadway. If one brake applies more stopping force than the others, the consequences could be catastrophic.

This also is why most manufacturers now offer antilock brakes on their cars. These brake systems actually measure the speed of the wheels and adapt system pressure to prevent any one wheel from breaking loose from the roadway. The result is a braking system that won’t lock the wheels so you can maintain control of your car even during the most critical braking situations.

Our certified technician will inspect your vehicle’s braking system including the discs (rotors) or drums, brake shoes, brake pads, brake hydraulic system, emergency brakes, brake fluid, hoses, lines, and more. A professional brake inspection can save wear and tear on the system and can save you from a scary stop.

Be sure to schedule a regular brake inspection so you can get where you’re going safely.
