To keep you safe, we will examine, measure, and make sure all braking systems are functioning properly.
If your brakes are making squealing, grinding, or growling noises when you slow your vehicle, it’s probably time for a brake inspection. Those aren’t the only signs to look out for when it comes to brakes, so be sure to check out our full list of common signs and symptoms of brake issues (this will link to the complete list in the page).
If you have worn brake pads or bad rotors, it can reduce your stopping ability and compromise vehicle safety. Faulty brakes are serious business, let our technicians take a look to make sure you’re safe on the road.
At HonToy Care Auto Repair, we want our Colorado customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit HonToy Care Automotive Repair where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
BRAKE FLUID FLUSHES
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at HonToy Care Automotive Repair about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
BRAKE PAD & SHOE REPLACEMENT
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact HonToy Care Automotive Repair as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Brake pads and rotors “marry” to each other over time, wearing the pad’s brake pattern into the rotor, which can cause squealing and wobbling, or reduced braking capacity if only replacing pads. HonToy Care Automotive Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
