Santee Brake Service | Import Auto Service

Proper maintenance of your brakes is of utmost importance to ensure your vehicle comes to a stop quickly when you need it to. If you notice any of the following, your vehicle may be due for brake service:

  • Pulsing coming from the brake pedal
  • Vibrations in the steering wheel
  • Brake warning light in dash
  • Car pulls to one side when stopping
  • Squeaking, grinding or other unusual noises
  • Increased stopping distance

Every brake service typically starts with an inspection to assess the situation. There are two types of brake systems, disc brakes and drum brakes; most modern cars use disc brakes but we service both.

What happens if you don’t service your brakes?

When you neglect your brake pads and shoes, your brakes will ultimately fail. Keep in mind that prior to this failure you can cause damage to other, more expensive brake parts, such as rotors, drums and calipers. Proper brake maintenance can not only keep you safe but can save you money in the long run.
