Mountain View Brake Shop
No matter how well built your car or truck is, if you can’t stop then you are in danger. The brakes on a vehicle are the most important safety feature it has. This is why it is so important that you go to a brake shop that does not cut corners and uses the highest quality parts available. At A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. we focus on quality but offer it at a very affordable and competitive price. We are an Auto Repair Shop that does things right the first time!
Are Brake Pads Expensive To Have Replaced?
The short answer is “no, not really”. The main cost or replacement is labor, and most brake replacement average about two to three hours in labor per axle, depending on the vehicle. This typically includes the time to have the drums or rotors turned or replaced, depending on what is needed.
The actual cost of the pads can vary. When people try to cut cost by using inferior brake pads this is something that we do not recommend. For the small amount of the overall cost that you save, you lose money overall. Because getting the better quality parts will last longer and save you money in the long run. Using a quality brake pad auto repair shop like A-1 Auto Tech, Inc., will get you the highest quality work for the best possible price.
What Are Brake Rotors And Drums?
Brake rotors and drums are the smooth metal parts that your brake pads squeeze against in order to stop your vehicle. Some people cut corners by only replacing the pads without turning or replacing the drums or rotors. If they are rough or worn they will wear out your brake pads if you don’t either replace them or turn them on a lathe so that the surface is again smooth.
At A-1 Auto Tech, Inc., we don’t cut corners like that. We want your brake repair with us to last as long as it possibly can. We know that doing quality work at an affordable price not only keeps our clients safe, but keeps them coming back over and over again in the future.
Do I Need A Brake Fluid Flush?
Well that is a good question for A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. if you live or work in and around the Mountain View, California area. They are an expert brake fluid flush auto repair shop! A good rule of thumb is you should flush out and replace your brake fluid about every 30,000 miles or so.
The only really difficult part can be bleeding the lines, which means getting all of the air bubbles out. If you don’t get all of the air bubbles out your car can squeak, wobble and make funny noises. It can also inhibit your ability to stop your car in more serious cases. This is why we recommend coming to see us. We are experts and will get you fixed up and back on the road quickly.
