Top-Class Care for Your Vehicle's Brake Shoes
Both disc and drum brakes are fitted with shoes or pads that press against the wheels to slow down the vehicle. These pads and shoes are made of a very tough material that's strong enough to withstand the force and heat produced due to stopping.

If these pads wear away, your car's rotors will get damaged and can actually end up with grooves from the calipers. You need to resurface or replace the rotors if this happens. This is not only costly, but you're risking your safety as well.

Certified Master Technicians for a Great Repair Work
When you visit our shop, the ASE-certified master technicians will inspect your car's brake fluid. A recommended level of brake fluid needs to be maintained, failing which, the brakes can't apply enough pressure needed for stopping at the right moment.

Water can also accumulate in the brake fluid, leading to corrosion and leaks. This can result in expensive repairs. You must change the brake fluid as frequently as mentioned in the manufacturer's guidelines. You can also schedule an oil change once you're here.
