You expect your car to move forward or backward when you step on the accelerator. Does your car come to a quick stop when you step on the brake pedal? If not, then it's time to check-in with the experts for a brake service. It's inevitable that over time, the components of the braking system will fail, resulting in a possible brake replacement.

A professional brake service should include:

  • Measurement of front and rear brake pad wear
  • Measurement of rotor wear
  • Measurement of drum wear
  • Strip dip brake fluid test
  • E-brake inspection

A professional technician can check for other problems and determine if any other service may be required, such as:

  • Installation of new brake pads or shoes
  • Resurfacing or replacement of rotors or drums
  • Brake fluid change
  • Brake bleeding
  • Replacement of brake lines, hoses and other components

From pads to rotors, lines to hoses, calipers to the master cylinder, every part of the braking system works together to stop your car safely. Ask your preferred auto repair technician to inspect your vehicle to make sure you are driving as safe as possible.

Remember: You can save time and expense of costly repairs by having your vehicle's braking performance checked at regular intervals to ensure you are driving as safe as possible.

Fast facts about brakes:

  • All cars have four brakes - two in the rear and two in the front.
  • In most cars, front brakes are primarily responsible for halting your vehicle and provide 60% to 90% of the vehicle's stopping power.
  • Malcolm Lockheed is credited with developing the hydraulic brake system in 1918.

Keep your brakes in good working order before they become a safety concern, and before you have to spend more money than necessary on a brake replacement. Contact our ASE Certified technicians today at (763) 441-2889 or go to www.elkrivertireandauto.com for more information. Our auto service center in Elk River, MN proudly serves residents in the areas of Zimmerman, and Otsego, Minnesota.
