Brake Pads

Your brake pads are necessary to create friction which slows down your vehicle. They can wear down with normal use and will need to be replaced periodically.

Brake Rotors

Brake Rotors

Your brake pads close around metallic discs, known as brake rotors, to cause the traction needed when you step on your brake pedal. The rotors can wear too thin, at which point they will need to be replaced. If there is sufficient thickness remaining on the rotors, our certified technicians can resurface them for you.

Brake Fluid Exchange

Brake Fluid Exchange

Although most people aren’t aware, there is fluid within your braking system which allows your brakes to move freely and function at optimal performance. The brake fluid can deteriorate over time and will need to be replaced so that contaminants don’t build up and inhibit your brakes’ functionality.
