Brakes are one of the most important items to keep maintained on your vehicle. Brakes are not only responsible for your safety, but the overall well-being of your vehicle. If you let your brakes go unchecked for too long, it can lead to costly repairs.

The brakes and suspension work hand-in-hand to ensure that you stop quickly and smoothly. If the suspension is off, it can make your ride not only bumpy and unpleasant, but also affect the braking distance in the event of a sudden stop. Having your suspension and brakes checked regularly can make all the difference in the way your vehicle feels and functions.

We, at Buckeye Complete Auto Care, take pride in making all our repairs the correct repairs! Therefore, when we receive a call requesting, “How much are brakes?”, we have discovered that it would be a disservice to our Customers/Potential Customers as it could result in an inaccurate estimate, often replacing the wrong parts. We always recommend bringing the vehicle in so we can inspect the entire system based on your symptoms. The inspection incorporates a myriad of items: Brake Pads, Brake Rotors, Brake Fluid, and any of the multiple Hydraulic Components. We have found that implementing this approach, not only, allows us to offer an accurate estimate but often saves the customer money and future issues by repairing the right component. For example: Even though you might think you only need brake pads.  You might also have a Brake Line that is corroded and may give out while driving, thus losing all braking ability.  You might not need Brake Pads; we have found on, countless cars, when there is a squeak, or when Brake Pads have been recommended by another Service Center, no problems were found in that area but a more pressing problem was discovered. Buckeye Complete Auto Care wants to be the place where you feel comfortable and confident in what you are buying!!

Brakes should be checked at your 5K Service. However, if you hear any unusual noises, such as squeaking or squealing when you press your brakes, this could mean that the brake pads are worn down and the filament is exposed. Immediate replacement is necessary to avoid any more damage to the braking system. If delayed, worn brake pad usage can lead to deterioration of the rotors and costly repairs. It’s imperative to have them fixed immediately, as soon as notice anything off or awry.
