Brake Components That AllStarr Car Care & Brakes Provides
Seized Brake Caliper
Brake calipers consist of guide pins that can become stuck, brake hoses can collapse, and brake pads experience uneven wear. All of these can result in a safety concern.
Underneath, your vehicle can develop rust due to moisture as part of daily driving. Inspecting brake and fuel lines regularly can prevent sudden brake failure.
Typically, brake pads last approximately 20,000 miles depending on driving behavior. When brake pads become worn, they begin grinding into the brake rotor. This can pose a danger and result in further expense and repair. With every tire rotation, brake inspection, or state inspection, our technicians will remove all four wheels and inspect brake pad wear to keep you informed.
Rotors become warped due to sudden variation from hot to cold temperatures. This concern can cause a pulsation when the brake pedal is applied. Our technician will inspect the damage and suggest the appropriate action to prevent harm to other components.
