Brake Inspection

A brake check not only brings along peace-of-mind knowing that this important vehicle component is up-to-the-task in its designed stopping ability, but also helps you save money in the long-term from acting quickly on any brake parts (like brake pads and rotors) that need replacing or damage that may be developing.

When to Get a Brake Inspection?

  • If your brakes consistently make squealing noises or weird sounds.
  • If you notice a change in stopping performance.
  • If your brake pedal pulsates.
  • ABS or brake warning light illuminates in your dash.
  • Emergency brake won’t hold the vehicle in place.

This Brake Service Includes:

  • Road test performed by one of our certified technicians.
  • Full inspection of brake system (calipers, pads, shoes, rotors, drums, lines and fluid), along with any emergency brake parts
  • A copy of our brake inspection report, which goes over all of the components checked, and estimates for any work needed, if so required.





Brake System Diagnosis

The anti-lock braking system on your vehicle helps to prevent its wheels from locking, so you can maintain control under slippery conditions or hard braking needs.

When to Get a Brake System Diagnosis?

  • The ABS or brake service light illuminates in your gauge cluster.





This Brake Service Includes:

  • Road test to evaluate your brake functions.
  • Checking your car’s OBDII computer to check and evaluate any thrown codes.
  • Brake component inspection, along with work/part estimates, if required.




Brake Fluid Flush

Brake fluid helps transfer that pressure from your foot pressing down on the pedal, through the lines and to the actual brakes themselves to initiate a stop. Over time, heat pressure and moisture will reduce the effectiveness of brake fluid, requiring it to be flushed and replaced.

When to Get a Brake Fluid Flush?

  • If your brake pedal starts to develop a less firm and spongy feel when you press down on it.




This Brake Fluid Flush Service Includes:

  • Road test to evaluate your brake functions.
  • Brake system flush, with up to 1L of new fluid added.
  • Brake component inspection, along with work/part estimates, if required.
