Is it time for a Brake Service?
If you notice any of the car brake symptoms or warning signs found below (or anything else that seems “not right”), it’s a good idea to have your auto brakes checked. Brakes Plus® will provide you with a FREE brake check. If our brake service inspection reveals they do require repair, we will explain exactly what’s required and what’s optional. We will then provide you with a written estimate before any brake repair work is done.
- Complete auto brakes inspection
- Replacing pads or shoes
- Lube calipers and hardware
- Machine rotors or drums
- Test drive
What is Rotor Matching?
Over time, uneven wear on your brake rotor will cause wobbling or pedal pulsation. This results in an overall decrease in performance of the braking system. The brake pads are contacting the brake rotor unevenly, which over time causes a thickness variation.
Matching the rotor to your vehicle prevents this from happening.
There are many different levels of brake pads and shoes on the market today, each varying in quality. At Brakes Plus®, we only install top of the line, Industry Best brake pads and shoes. In most cases we recommend ceramic brake pads with our Economy $129 Standard Brake Service, and our Premium $199 Complete Brake Service Brakes Packages.
Ceramic pads represent the latest in brake pad technology. Ceramic brake pads produce less brake dust, have better stopping power and create less brake noise.
As brake technology continues to evolve, more and more auto manufacturers are outfitting their autos with ceramic pads right from the factory. We offer ceramic brake pads to our customers and most of these pads will cost the same or less than our competitors brake jobs, and we are using Industry Best ceramic brake pads!
Brake rotors are vehicle specific and a very important component to the braking system. Brake pads clamp down onto the brake rotor, which stops your vehicle. This function creates heat. The brake rotor dissipates the heat, allowing your braking system to work properly. If that heat can’t escape, it leads to brake fade, which reduces the brakes’ stopping power. If the brake rotor is worn past specification, it needs to be replaced. Visit our Locations page to find the closest Brakes Plus and schedule your brake service today.
Brakes Plus® offers Free Brake Inspections and has the industries best equipment to diagnose and repair your brake system. We will remove all four (4) tires and do a complete brake inspection on all braking components before recommending any brake service. Brake Inspections generally take 20-30 minutes, if we have a brake service bay available. We will not perform any brake service without your authorization. If you are at our store when we complete the Brake Inspection, we will offer to bring you into the shop so you can see for yourself the condition of your brakes before any work is done.
