Brake Service and Repairs
It‘s pretty clear that your brakes need servicing if you hit the brakes and your car takes longer to stop.. But its important to know there are less noticeable warning signs that you should watch for to guarantee your safety when travelling on the road.
If your vehicle displays the following symptoms - you need to get your brakes checked:
- Your brake pedal feels different - either spongy, softer or harder
- The brake pedal is low
- During braking your vehicle loses grip
- When braking your car pulls to one side
- The steering wheel shudders when braking
- Your brakes squeak or squeal
If your vehicle displays any of these signs, contact us at Eastside Automotive as soon as possible.
Brakes are the most important part of your vehicles safety; forgetting their regular service is downright dangerous. Braking systems should be examined at every service and by a specialist with the appropriate experience.
At Eastside Automotive we offer a free 65 Point Vehicle Inspection report with every car service that we perform, and advise you if we feel there are any immediate safety concerns, and offer the needed repairs or service. Our written report will also let you know if there are requirements in the near future you should plan for.
As part of this inspection we check over the brake system components including:
- Front Brake Pads/Shoes
- Front Brake Disc Rotors/Drums
- Front Calipers
- Front Brake Hoses/Clips/Springs
- Rear Brake Pads/Shoes
- Rear Brake Disc Rotors/Drums
- Brake Fluid
