Here at Japanese CarMasters, we know brakes, we know how to inspect them, replace them and when necessary, repair them. Let us be your brake experts anytime you need to have the pads replaced or if you need a brake repair that is a little more involved.
We know that drivers oftentimes take their brakes for granted but the truth is, you use them more than your car keys. Brakes make it possible to avoid crashes, road hazards and without them you couldn’t obey even the most rudimentary traffic laws such as stopping at a stop light.
That being said you may now recognize your braking system as the most important safety feature that your vehicle has to offer. If it has been a while since you’ve had your brakes inspected, let us take a look. We can quickly perform a visual inspection and give you a better idea of when your brakes will need to be replaced.
Brake Pads San Diego, CA
Not sure when you need to have your brake pads replaced? Don’t worry, in most cases brake pads have a small metal filament embedded within the pad itself and when it gets worn down, it exposes the filament. The resulting noise can sound like a high pitched squeak or squeal. This type of noise can also be caused by vibrations so be sure to ask us whenever you come in for a repair or routine oil change.
Brake Fluid San Diego, CA
You also may want to have your brake fluid checked if you have been driving your vehicle for some time. The fluid in your brake lines can become acidic over time due to exposure to oxygen and other contaminants. When the acidity level becomes high enough, it can eat away at the more vulnerable parts of your braking system causing more expensive and involved repairs to become necessary.
So whenever you have questions about how to best maintain or repair your braking system, be sure to give us a call, drop on by our shop or schedule an appointment online for a day and time that works best for you!
