Common Auto Brake Repair Issues

Your vehicle’s brakes face excessive wear and tear on the road. They wear down over time as you stop and go. The most common car brake issues we repair include the following: 

  • Worn Brake Pads – Brake pads have an indicator that makes contact with the rotor and produces a high noise when they start to wear thin. If you hear squealing, it’s time to replace your brake pads. If you hear a grinding sound, the brake pads have worn through completely and are at risk of damaging the rotors.
  • Loss of Hydraulic Pressure  When you push your brake pads, you use hydraulic pressure to push them against the rotors. A leak in the hydraulic system will cause a loss of hydraulic pressure that doesn’t provide stopping power. 
  • Damaged Rotor  When rotors are exposed to stressful road conditions like towing, they may warp and cause the vehicle to shake.
  • Worn Brake Shoes  When disc brakes wear down, you will hear a squealing sound. They make a grinding sound like worn brake pads when they are completely worn through.

Common Auto Suspension Issues

Your vehicle’s suspension system should maximize the contact between the tires and the road and provide steering stability. When your car suspension system is off, your vehicle will signal you. The most common auto suspension issues include: 

  • Uneven Tire Wear – If your suspension system starts to fail, the wheels will not hold evenly on the road and will begin to wear down your tires unevenly.
  • Worn Struts – Worn shocks and struts will cause excessive bouncing while driving.
  • Leaking Shocks – You may notice oil leaking when your car is parked, indicating it’s time to replace your shocks.
  • Bad Spring Coils – Spring coils are durable but can cause your car to lean heavily to one side if broken.
