Professional Brake Repair in Santa Cruz

Professional Brake Repair in Santa Cruz

Brake inspection and brake repair is probably the most important work we do at the full-service Goodyear Tires and Auto Repair shop in Santa Cruz. When it comes to safely stop your vehicle – there is no substitute. That’s why we provide top brake repair and service in Santa Cruz.

Brake failure is a scary and dangerous experience – don’t let that happen to you. At our Santa Cruz auto repair shop we can inspect the brakes and repair whatever may be amiss – from worn-out brake pads to warped rotors, sticky calipers, brake lines, brake fluid, and whatever else may ail your vehicle.

Whether you drive Nissan Titan, or a little Honda Fit, keeping its brakes in excellent working condition should always be your priority. 

Reasons to Have the Brakes Checked Out:

  1. Going on a Long Trip

Before going on a long trip, brake check is a must. In general, we recommend full oil service and overall vehicle inspection before long trips or vacations, with particular emphasis on the brake system. Going down a twisting road in the middle of Sierra Nevada is not a good time to be wondering if the brakes will hold.  Let our technicians know you are going on a long trip – this may change their recommendation as to the timing of brake pad or brake shoe replacement.

  1. Driving an Older Car

Braking system components deteriorate over time. They are subject to the elements, high temperatures while braking, chemicals that can damage brake lines – and just overall deterioration that comes with age.  The older the vehicle, the more likely that something will go wrong – have your vehicle brakes inspected regularly.

  1. Strange Noises Coming From the Brake System

Any time you hear unusual noise from your vehicle is the reason for concern. But strange noises coming from your brakes require immediate action – get your vehicle to a competent mechanic for a brake inspection.

Brake pads are manufactured with wear indicators that create an auditory warning that the pads are worn out. Any squealing sounds coming from the brakes should motivate you to visit a Santa Cruz brake repair shop.

There are other signals that brake service is due: car pulling to the side when braking, or spongy brake pedal, or brake indicator illuminating on the dashboard.
