WHY CHOOSE US?
From the brake pedal to hydraulic brake fluid, brake master cylinder to power brake booster, drum brakes to disc brakes and electronic anti-lock brake sensors, American Brake and Foreign Car Service technicians know every part of your brake system inside and out.
Disc brakes slow or stop the rotation of a vehicle’s wheels. When the vehicle is stopped, friction generated by the brake pads and the disc converts kinetic energy to heat. The friction forces the wheels to stop.
Any time you notice these symptoms, or any others, it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked. If our inspection team at American Brake and Foreign Car Service reveals they do require repair, we will explain exactly what’s required, what’s optional and provide you with a written estimate before any work is done to your vehicle.
Fact: Your car’s brakes can mean life or death. Here are a few tips to prolong the life and effectiveness of your brakes.
- Avoid “riding” your brakes. It’s better to slow down with moderate pressure and then releasing the brake to cool, than riding the brakes and overheating them.
- On steep grades consider downshifting to save your brakes. Only do this when traction conditions are good. In ice, snow, or even rain, downshifting into too low of a gear may cause a skid. Downshifting lets you engine do some of the braking instead of your brakes.
- Keep your wheels and braking system clean. Clean brakes work better and keep temperatures down. Use a good wheel cleaner which you know if safe for your wheel finish.
