Why Choose Us For Your Pensacola Brake Repair?
2-Year Warranty on Parts and Labor
That’s right. We offer a 2-year warranty on all our parts and labor. If something goes wrong with your brakes in those first two years, we want to make sure we correct the issue and get you back on your way.
Experienced and Professional Technicians
Our technicians are ASE-Certified and are experts in their field. They have undergone extensive training and certification to perform diagnosis and repairs on your vehicle’s braking system. They will use their years of brake repair experience to ensure the correct repairs are performed reliably and efficiently on your first visit, whether it is a brake caliper replacement, brake rotor resurfacing, or a brake sensor replacement.
Thorough Inspections for Accurate Diagnosis of Your Brakes
We always perform a complete inspection on your braking system because squeaking brakes don’t always mean you need to replace your brake pads. Our technicians are ASE-Certified and can accurately identify the real problem with your vehicle’s brakes. We will perform a thorough visual and mechanical inspection of the whole braking system and complete a road test to verify the diagnosis. We won’t knowingly recommend replacing brake rotors when simply replacing the brake pads will do.
Comprehensive Overviews and No-Pressure Recommendations
We won’t perform any brake repairs on your vehicle until we’ve explained the repairs needed in detail and you fully understand what is required. We will only perform repairs once you approve them and won’t pressure you to make an uninformed decision. We want you be comfortable with us, and will answer any questions you may have about why you need to change the brake fluid or why your brakes are squealing.
Quality Brake Parts Result in a Quality Brake Repair
Because you need to trust that you will stop every time you press your brakes, we always use high-quality OEM or approved aftermarket brake parts and fluid for your brake repair.

When Should I Get My Brakes Checked?

Grinding Or Squealing Sound
Most cars today use disc brakes. A hydraulic system filled with brake fluid triggers a set of padded clamps (calipers) causing them to squeeze the rotor. The friction that occurs between the pads and rotor ensures that the car stops. Over time, the pads will begin to wear, often causing a squealing sound from the wear indicator. If ignored, the pads will continue to wear, resulting in metal on metal grinding which can damage the calipers and hoses, resulting in a much more costly repair.
A grinding sound, not to be confused with a squeal, is more prevalent in most late model cars. In either of these cases, you should visit your local mechanic for a brake check as soon as possible.
Vehicle Darts To The Right Or Left While Braking
This may be due to a stuck caliper which causes friction on one wheel and not the others, resulting in your car pulling to the side where the caliper is stuck. Another brake-related problem that could cause a car to pull would be a collapsed brake hose reducing fluid pressure causing the vehicle to pull to the right or the left. If your car begins to pull, you’ll want to get it to your mechanic’s shop to be checked properly.
Vibrating Brake Pedal Or Steering Column
A vibrating brake pedal indicates warped rotors. This is normal wear and tear that occurs differently depending on the vehicle and driving conditions. This can often be detected either by a pulsation or vibration in the brake pedal or steering column.
Inconsistent Brake Pedal
If the brake pedal feels inconsistent or sinks to the floor, this likely indicates a problem with the hydraulic system, such as leak, which needs to be inspected immediately.
