Brake Service in Gainesville, FL

When you see a red light and hit the brakes, you expect to stop. Brake maintenance on your vehicle should never be ignored. Stopping quickly ensures the safety of you and your passengers.

When you hit the brake pedal, several parts must work together to allow your vehicle to stop. If just one part malfunctions, it could mean trouble for you. At the first sign of a possible problem, it's best to have your brakes inspected by a professional.

A few brake warning signs:

  • Jerky or violent stops
  • Brake pedal feels "mushy" or hard to depress
  • Brake warning light comes on
  • Unusual noise or vibrations when brakes are applied
  • Your car pulls to the right or left when braking

Before harsh seasons, like winter or summer, it's important to inspect your brakes for wear. New cars typically require brake service after about 30,000 miles. Extreme weather conditions can alter your brakes' performance, so ensuring they are in proper condition is important to your car and your safety. Most brake repairs should be left to a certified technician to complete.
