As a full-service neighborhood auto shop Checkpoint Automotive provides brake repairs for all domestic makes and models and all Asian imports. You must not delay when your brakes are underperforming as it drastically increases your risk on the road. If you no longer come to a full and complete stop with ease or in the time it used to take to stop—stop by for a brake inspection and repair ASAP!
Are My Brakes Worn Out?
Your brake pads protect your rotors from premature and costly wear. These pads need to be replaced every 50,000 miles or so—but this can very greatly from one driver or vehicle to the next. If you drive full time, brake hard, brake frequently, or brake fast your pads are likely to wear out sooner. We also suggest that fleets who drive heavy loads have their brakes replaced sooner. The quality of your current brakes is also an important factor. Rest assured that when you have your brakes repaired at Checkpoint Automotive that they are high quality and designed to last. All of our parts and mechanics are backed by either 24 months/24,000 miles or 35 months/36,000 miles warranty.
Signs Of A Brake Failure
We encourage all of our customers to stop in our shop at the first sign of anything different or new in any area of their vehicle—for any shake, rattle, squeal or change in performance. This will ensure we fix minor repairs before they escalate and minimize your vehicle downtime and overall repair expenses.
When it comes to your brakes, stop by ASAP if:
- Your brakes have started squealing or grinding when you press your brake pedal.
- If your vehicles pulls slightly, or aggressively, when you brake.
- If your brake pedal vibrates when you push down.
- If it takes longer to stop than comfortable or longer to stop than it used to.
