Santa Cruz Brake Repair
Welcome to the premier Santa Cruz auto repair shop – Goodyear Tires and Auto Repair. We offer brake repair among the many services we provide. Fortunately, most often your vehicle will only need brake pad replacement, or brake shoe replacement. Brake rotor replacement is considerably more rare, especially if the vehicle is well maintained. Still, whether your vehicle needs brake pad replacement, has warped rotors, the brake fluid needs to be exchanged (brake fluid flush), or there are serious problems with the ABS braking system, bring your car to the premier Santa Cruz brake repair specialists – we are happy to be of service.
Regular brake service is to be expected in Santa Cruz - stop and go traffic, ocean air, hills – they all put extra stress and wear on the braking system. Whether you drive a little Nissan Leaf, or a big Ford F-250, regular brake inspection is a good idea. Whether your car has drum brakes or disk brakes, it will need regular brake service.
Our ASE certified technicians can handle all aspects of brake service and repairs – from a visual inspection, to brake pad thickness measurement, to brake pad or shoe replacement, brake fluid testing and replacement, brake calipers repair or replacement, disk brakes or drum brakes, brake master cylinder to power brake booster, ABS electronic anti-lock brakes, and the anti-lock brake sensors – we can provide high quality brake services and repairs, and usually we can complete them the same day.
Symptoms that Indicate that Brakes Need to Be Checked by a Mechanic:
Visit your trusted brake mechanic when you notice any of following symptoms:
- brake pedal is spongy or slow to respond
- grinding or constant squealing during braking
- brake dashboard light is red
- brake dashboard light glows amber, signaling problems with the anti-lock brake system (ABS)
- any time you feel that “something is wrong” with the brakes
