It’s hard to say which safety feature is most important in a car. For us, next to tires, it’s brakes. Car and truck brakes wear at entirely unpredictable rates. Driving habits alone determine wear. These habits result in drastically different rates of decay in brake components. Charging intersections, erratic fluctuations in speed, hauling heavy loads over elevated terrain – these are examples of driving behaviors that cause brakes to wear out quickly. Once we’ve serviced your vehicle a few times, we can begin to identify patterns and predict service intervals.
Brake services include measuring the hydroscopic action of water in brake fluid and inspecting pads, rotors, shoes, drums, and calipers. Brake hoses, lines, and master cylinders are also routine points of a Metro Garage brake inspection.
