BRAKES – STOP ON A DIME!

The brake system is one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. Keeping up with brake repairs and maintenance is critical to your safety on the road. The brake system is comprised of many components including brake pads, cylinders, master cylinders, calipers, wheel cylinders, hydro-boost units, drums, and rotors. These components all endure wear and tear with miles driven and will need replacement and maintenance at some point. As part of our safety check, we will inspect your brake system for any needed maintenance or repairs which may include flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system, brake pad replacement, replacement of the brake lines, drums or rotors. If you notice any of the following symptoms with your brake system, bring your vehicle into Mt. Pleasant Auto Service Center for our diagnostic brake inspection.

  • Vehicle is pulling to one side while applying the brake
  • Brake pedal vibrates when applying the brake
