Ensuring your brakes are working properly is extremely important. Having fully-functioning brakes in your car is what keeps you and your family safe.
Disc brakes, drum brakes, brake pads, the handbrake, brake fluid—the brake system is complex and in most cases need expert inspection and service. If your brakes are squealing, grinding or vibrating they may be in need of an inspection.

Disc brakes are found on most cars today, on the front and rear wheels. Disc brakes utilize a caliper fitted with two brake pads, one on each side. The pads are compressed against the disc (or rotor) to slow and stop your vehicle.
On newer cars, discs do not need to be replaced alongside brake pads. If the discs are unevenly worn or scored however, they need to be replaced. One indication that your rotors need to be replaced is strong vibration while slowing and stopping your car.

Each disc brake has two brake pads (one per side) which compress via the caliper and slow/stop your car. Brake pads are also the component that require the most frequent replacement.
While every car is different, pads should be replaced every 40,000-50,000 miles. Warning signs that pads need replacing include squealing, grinding, vibration and in some instances an indicator light on your dashboard.
Brake fluid is used to lubricate and protect the components of your brake system. Cylinders, pistons, seals, and valves—fluid helps protect them and prevent corrosion and moisture from entering the system.
Your vehicle shouldn't lose fluid from normal wear and tear. If your brake fluid level is low there may be a leak somewhere in your system, which could result in a dangerous reduction in brake performance.
Anti-lock brake systems are standard in most cars today, making stopping in slippery or dangerous conditions much more manageable.
When your car is in forward motion and one or more of the wheels has stopped rotating or "locked," the ABS sensor kicks in to help out. A valve is then directed to pump brake fluid to the stopped tire to make it rotate again.
This system is extremely important in keeping you and your family safe on difficult roads or during the winter season. If your ABS light has come on we strongly recommend giving us a call as soon as possible.
