Brake Service & Repair

Starting to hear squeeky brakes? Repairing or replacing brakes can be as simple as changing the brake pads. Brakes should be inspected every 3 months or 3,000 miles. A screeching or grinding noise when you press on the brake pedal is an indicator that metal parts of your brakes are scraping together. Regular inspection and timely replacement of worn brake parts can help you avoid more extensive – and expensive – repairs and keep you and your family safer on the road.

Repairs become more involved if the rotors have been damaged, or if other parts of the system like brake lines are failing. Driving in San Diego is tough on cars. With all the traffic, the narrow roads, the potholes, and all the stop and go traffic, San Diego is especially tough on brakes! Driving conditions here may lead to accelerated brake wear, so having a qualified and trustworthy service center is important for both safety and cost savings. We advise catching worn brakes pads BEFORE you hear them grinding! Don't wait too long or severe, costly damage can occur. You can save over 50% off the price of a brake job by acting before the damage to rotors is done.
