Brake Inspection & Brake Repair Company St. Paul
When we inspect your brakes, we see everything those brakes have been through, from easy summer road trips to skidding roads in the harsh winters of Minnesota. If you’re hearing strange noises coming from your wheels, or your brakes just don’t feel quite like they used to, let us know. With a comprehensive brake inspection, we’ll pinpoint exactly which brake elements need repairs, and we’ll get to work to fix whatever piece of your brakes has been worn down. Your vehicle’s brakes are some of the most important elements of safe driving, but, unfortunately, they don’t last forever; in fact, depending on how, when, and where you drive, they might not last very long at all. Regardless of how often your brakes need to be changed, though, don’t neglect them. Your brakes, if not repaired, can become too worn down to fix, requiring replacements and, in extreme cases of brake neglect, replacement of nearby fixtures that have been damaged by your failing brakes.
Complete Brake Jobs for Worn-Out Brakes
If we complete a brake inspection and your brakes have become too damaged for repairs, we’ll need to replace the brakes on your vehicle. We offer full brake replacements of each part of your brakes, ensuring that nothing is left to chance and your brakes aren’t left half-fixed. We’ve dealt with all vehicle makes and models, and we know the differences to look for in every brake element of every vehicle we see. When you come to us for a complete brake job, we’ll work with disc brakes, drum brakes, brake pedals, hydraulic brake fluid, brake master cylinders, electronic anti-lock brake sensors, and power brake boosters. Looking over every inch of your brakes, we’ll identify he problem, provide the best solution, and help you understand why your brakes failed so that you can take steps to prevent brake failure in the future.
What are the Symptoms of Failing Brakes?
Most vehicle owners are attuned to how their cars are driving, noticing subtle differences in their vehicles’ performance and paying attention to dashboard maintenance lights. While brake failure is not usually subtle, it is something that you should be on the lookout for so that your brakes don’t have to fail before you realize they’re in need of care. A large number of drivers first notice brake problems when they hear their brakes squeaking, screeching, or grinding, and at this stage, not everyone gets their vehicles checked out. However, if you’re hearing signs of brake-wear, you should have your brakes inspected, regardless of whether your brake dashboard light is on. You may also feel your vehicle pulsing while braking or notice changes in the feeling of the brake pedal, which can alert you to possible brake failure. If you notice a soft brake pedal that is too-easily pushed down or a spongy brake pedal that is sluggish and does not respond quickly to pressure, get your brakes checked immediately.
Preventing Brake Failure
There’s no way to make your brakes last forever or even ensure that your brakes will never fail before they can be repaired or replaced; however, there are a number of ways to prevent brake failure and keep your brakes healthy. By regularly and properly maintaining your vehicle, ensuring you stick to a routine maintenance schedule and stay on the lookout for any brake problems before they become serious, you can save yourself hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on brake repairs and replacements. With comprehensive vehicle brake inspections, reliable brake repair service, and expert brake replacements, there’s no better way to ensure that your brakes last than to come to St. Paul Automotive.
