Automotive braking systems generate the resistance necessary to stop forward momentum as quickly as possible to prevent collisions. The braking system has several essential components working together to stop your Toyota, including a master cylinder pump, hydraulic fluid, calipers with pistons, high-friction pads, rotors connected to the wheels, lines, and hoses. The complete braking system needs routine inspections, and several components require routine maintenance. Regular brake service is an investment in safety and reduced long-term maintenance cost.
The foundation of brake system maintenance and powerful braking when you need it most are frequent inspections. Certified technicians perform brake inspections; we check all essential components, measure the brake pads, and identify any parts requiring maintenance. It’s always the best bet to get a brake system inspection if you notice strange noises near the wheels, such as squealing or grinding, your vehicle requires more distance and time to stop, or the brake system dashboard warning light is on.Learn More
Brake fluid is an excellent hydraulic, but a hygroscopic, moisture-absorbing property limits its life. Brake fluid needs exchange service every two to three years, no matter how many miles.Learn More
Brake pads are designed to create friction when clamped against the rotors connected to the wheels. The high-friction brake pads wear down incrementally, contingent upon driving conditions and habits. Brake pads are positioned at all four wheels handling different loads, often causing them to wear down at variable rates. We can replace all, rear or front brake pads as needed.Learn More
Brake rotors require maintenance depending upon the degree of wear and tear. Resurfacing service restores rotors by removing a small portion of the disc with minor cracks and grooves. Rotors with excessive cracking, grooving, or warping receive replacement service because they cannot be resurfaced while restoring factory specifications.Learn More
