Strange Noises

Squeaking could mean the brake pads are getting thin and are ready for replacement. Grinding could indicate the brake pad has worn completely away and is causing metal to metal contact which is extremely dangerous! If you are hearing these noises call immediately to have an inspection done by our highly qualified technicians.


When you hit the brakes, your car should slow down and stop. That’s it. If you notice that your vehicle has started to vibrate or shake when stopping it could be a sign that your rotors are warped and you should give our team a call for a brake inspection as soon as possible.
