What's included in the complete brake evaluation?

What does a brake job cost?.

Your brake system consists of several different parts that can be repaired individually. This is why we don't just give you a cost quote for a brake job over the phone or online. The need for replacement can be split into cause, some is age related and some is simply wear related.

When you bring your car or 4X4 in we perform our systematic brake evaluation to determine exactly what brake repairs are necessary. And we provide you with an estimate before starting any work, so you are in control of your repairs and what you spend.

How do I know I need my brakes repaired?

We have all heard it that squeaking or grinding sound when your car or 4WD is coming to a stop. These sounds are good indicators you may need new brake pads and/or rotors. Your brakes may also show a number of other signs that a brake repair is needed, such as:

  • Spongy brake pedal or any noticeable change to the way your brakes feel when you push on them.

  • Car pulls to one side when braking.

  • Car vibrates when braking.

  • Car takes longer than usual to come to a stop.

  • Steering wheel vibrates when braking.


Can you stop in time?

Brake test tomiss cyclist What happens: When you press down on the brake pedal, you trigger a series of rapid events. As you step on the pedal the caliper apply pressure to the brake pads, which in turn puts pressure on the brake rotors. This brings your car to a stop. If anything is “off” with your brake pads, you may feel it in your steering wheel. Brake pads that are old, worn, or particularly dirty cannot grip the rotor effectively and can cause your steering wheel to quiver and shake. You may not stop in time to prevent a terrible accident.
