Awesome service- It is a pleasure to know these friendly folks who appreciate cars and use OEM parts to make them run right! They weren't offended when I brought in an older vehicle or asked them to hold parts so I could see first-hand what needed to be done. Competitive pricing, honest and direct answers to questions, and efficient quality workmanship and reliability are just a few reasons I will continue to use Import Auto Service as my primary maintenance and repair specialists. 12/16/2017
Happy Customer
Thank you Tim and Chris for doing a same day oil change/A service on my Mercedes C250. I learned that a few services I received from the dealership were either not needed or suggested when I could have went another 60k miles without the service. I also saved a significant amount versus using the dealership for service. Thanks again!!! 8/10/2017

I would recommend to any family, friend, or colleague. These mechanics are honest, hardworking, and respectable. Chris gave me a fair estimate and at the end he didn't tag on any random fees. Gary worked on my car and did a great job. Thanks again guys. 8/3/2017

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.

What is included in the brake inspection and service?

Brake Inspection – Remove and reinstall four wheels and rear brake drums to inspect brake condition. Inspect entire system for leaks:

  • Diagnosis
  • Pad and Shoe Replacement
  • Hose Replacement
  • Line Replacement
  • Wheel Cylinders
  • Master Cylinders
  • Emergency Brakes
  • Brake Drums
  • Brake Rotors
  • Machining Drums
  • Machining Rotors
  • Power Boosters
