Brake Repair: Major or Minor?


From a simple brake repair to a complete overhaul of your entire braking system, you'll face many options. Be safe rather than sorry and take your car to your auto shop and let the brake repair professionals do the work for you.

Don't let brake repair be a headache. Most of the work will be preventative maintenance. It could either be that the discs need to be resurfaced to keep your braking distance safe, or it could just be that you need a simple caliper alignment.

Fortunately, there are only a few causes that would require an entire brake replacement. One instance would be if your brake pads become so worn that the rotors come in contact with the sensor, which isn't a good situation. Another cause would be an accident in which the wheels were damaged, which would mean a brake replacement too.

If a brake replacement is needed, I would recommend that it is done by a brake repair professional. Overall, taking care of your brakes and practicing smooth stop and go patterns while driving can save costly repair and replacement costs.
