Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. DARE Automotive Specialists Inc will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact DARE Automotive Specialists Inc as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at DARE Automotive Specialists Inc about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit DARE Automotive Specialists Inc where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Great service, great price and fast turn around. I took my car to other shops for an issue I was having and they could not figure out what the problem was. D.A.R.E was able to find the problem and fix it without just throwing parts on the car hoping that it would solve the problem.
Dave has always been great and fast with all our vehicles. They have helped to keep our 3 cars running in top shape over the year. I would never take them anywhere else.
Dave is always fair and honest and has very fair pricing. DARE can fix the problem!
I have been taking my cars to Dare for 10+ years. They are always fair and honest and have very fair pricing. They understand all makes and models. Even something like a check engine light. Some dealers state that they can fix every make however can only reset the check engine light and not tell you what is wrong. Dare can fix the problem! Keep your car running at its best by going to Dare Automotive. I promise you go once you will keep going back.
Dare is beyond honest! Best place to take your car hands down!! Seriously, you won't find anywhere better! I can't say enough good things about them!
