The Fastest Brake Repair & Replacement Service in Danville & Bloomsburg, PA

If your vehicle’s brakes aren’t working correctly, it can pose a serious threat to your safety. The brakes are key to ensuring that your vehicle stops in time, and if they’re in disrepair, it can be a hazardous situation. Brake service should be part of your car’s regular preventative maintenance. George Automotive Services in Danville, PA has a fully trained, experienced staff of mechanics who can perform the necessary brake service and repair or inspection for your vehicle.

Signs of Brake Problems

The reason your brakes are not working as they should be the result of a leak, a broken part, or simple wear and tear. It’s important to know the signs and symptoms of a potential brake issue. A common sign is a sudden grinding, squeaking, or squealing noise that happens every time you hit the brakes. If your brake pedal feels “spongy” or you notice that your steering wheel is shaking whenever you brake, these are other common issues. When you drive at highway speeds, if your car is wobbling or pulsating, it may also be an indication there’s a problem with your brakes.

Brake Services

Brake service can vary from a simple inspection to the installation of new pads and shoes. You may need to have your rotors or drums resurfaced as well. Your car’s braking system also contains brake fluid. If it’s leaking or the fluid has become dirty, it may be time for a brake fluid exchange. We can remove all brake fluid, contaminants, and air and then add new, clean fluid. If you suspect you may have a leak, we’ll carefully check for any cracks, broken seals, or other common causes for brake fluid leaks and make the needed repairs.

In most cases, your brake pads or shoes are worn down. A new installation of these parts should have your brakes working as good as new. The calipers or wheel cylinders should be checked for any issues, too. A well-trained mechanic will know exactly what to look for when it comes to brake system problems. Ideally, it would help if you asked for a brake inspection every time you bring your car in for an oil change to be on the safe side.

There is nothing more important than the brakes inside of your vehicle.  When you are driving on the road, your brakes, which are a combination of your brake pads and brake fluid, are critical to keeping you safe as well as everyone else around you safe.  You want your ability to stop to be as responsive and reliable as possible.  When you can brake properly, it gives you more confidence in your ride overall.  There will be times, though, when you need brake services done on your vehicle.

Brake Inspection

The best thing to do when it comes to your brakes is to have a brake inspection done.  A brake inspection is going to be a full review of your brakes, inclusive of a visual inspection of the car’s entire brake system.  This will help us determine if there are things that you can proactively do to help your vehicle, such as replacing the brake pads.  

Brake Replacement Services

If, during the brake inspection, there is a determination that the brakes are starting to near the end of their useful life, you may want to move forward with a brake replacement.  Brake replacement services can be done quickly and will include replacing either the pads, shoes, drums, or rotors.  It may also include replacing everything if all of that is necessary.

Signs of Brake Trouble

You want to be aware of signs of issues with your brakes when you are driving your vehicle.  The easiest sign of having issues with your brakes is that they are just not responding as well when you press down and stop the vehicle.  If the brakes are not working the way you would expect, have them looked at as soon as possible.

Another sign of trouble with brakes includes a lot of loud noises coming when you go to stop.  If you hear grinding or loud squeaking when stopping, get the brakes looked at.

Brakes play a major role in safety when driving on the open road.  Stay on top of the needs of your brakes and work with our team at George Automotive Services today.
