Dave’s Ultimate Automotive—We Service and Fix Disc and Drum Brake Systems
Brake Care Specialists
Modern vehicles come with a host of driver-assist systems that offer an impressive level of safety on the road. However, no system can replace your brakes. It’s vital to maintain your vehicle’s brake system so you can be 100% sure of your slowing and stopping power. Today’s cars possess one of the two major brake systems: disc or drum. A disc brake system features brake pads, calipers, and rotors. A drum brake system consists of brake shoes, a wheel cylinder, and pistons. Among the many different services we offer at our auto shop, brake care is certainly one of the most significant.

Brake Maintenance and Repair
You want the best, safest performance from your brake system, and routine maintenance ensures that. Maintenance for your brakes includes inspections, brake fluid exchanges, brake pad replacement, and bleeding. Bleeding is required on an as-needed basis when air gets trapped in the brake lines, which hinders the system’s effectiveness. The intervals you should bring your car in for such services depend on its specific make and model, but these can be located in your owner’s manual. Sometimes, considering the many parts included in the brake system, things can take a turn where you may require brake repair. If your brake pads wear too thin, for example, friction against the rotors can begin. When rotors become warped, they become jittery, unreliable, and less effective. A leak can also occur, most often in the master cylinder, in addition to a caliper that freezes up, bent pistons, a faulty master cylinder, and worn brake shoes. If you are starting to experience a shift from your usual braking patterns, reach out to our brake repair specialists for assistance!
Signs You Need Brake Repair
Besides regularly scheduled maintenance, how do you know when there might be a problem with your brakes? An easy indicator is the braking warning light illuminating your dashboard. If this comes in, we recommend coming in sooner rather than later. We utilize professional diagnostics technology to support our inspection and repair efforts. Additional tell-tale signs of a brake issue include strange noises, such as squealing or squeaking, a grinding sensation, wobbling or vibration when braking, and your vehicle pulling to the right or left. Of course, if you have to press harder on the brake pedal to stop, or if it takes longer to come to a complete stop, come on down. If you notice any of these symptoms, we encourage you to find a time to come in for a brake inspection ASAP. If you put off repairs, it could result in a major accident or injury. Plus, allowing a problem to worsen will only drive up your brake repair bill. Don’t compromise your safety—call 512-335-3955 for immediate assistance!
