Brake Service FAQs


Vibrations, shakes, and jitters are all common warning signs that your brake rotors are warped. If you're experiencing any of these things, you should bring your car in immediately for maintenance if it’s still safe to drive. Warped rotors may need to be either ground down to working order or replaced.

There are small, metal hairs at the bottom, which make loud noises. If you hear squealing or scraping, it means that your brakes are nearly out of gripping material.

Brake fluid helps transfer the movement and force created when you press down on the brake pedal.

  • Check brake pads and rotors.
  • Flushing your brake fluid.
  • Bleeding your brake lines.
  • Replacing or updating older worn brake parts.

Routine maintenance includes engine oil services, inspection services, brake fluid service, engine air filter, tire rotations and changes, and cabin air microfilter changes.

Getting your brake pads inspected and changed is important to not only help maintain your vehicle’s performance but also for your safety. Over time your pads wear down from use, and if you start to hear squealing, rattling, or grinding, you should have your brakes looked at immediately.
