When you get behind the wheel of your vehicle, safety is always at the forefront of your mind. A large component of your vehicle’s safety lies in its brake system. That’s why keeping your car or truck’s brakes properly maintained and repaired is critical. For all your brake repair and service needs, you can trust Mr. Transmission Milex of Winston-Salem NC to help keep you safe.

Brake Repair and Maintenance

Your vehicle’s brake system is made-up of a variety of components, from brake pads and cylinders to drums and rotors. These parts experience wear-and-tear as you drive and the mile counter climbs higher. Regular and maintenance is advised by our Winston-Salem NC experts to avoid more costly brake repairs. For example, when a vehicle’s brake pads become thin, they can damage the rotors or drums, which can then warp or even crack and cause brake failure.

Our expert team in Winston-Salem NC is dedicated to accurately diagnosing brake repair needs so we can save you time and money. We can assist with repairs including replacement of hoses, rotors, brake pads, and other components.

FAQs About Brake Repair Services

How can you prevent damage to your brake system?

Each component within the brake system needs service at some time. It is likely the brake pads will need replacing when they become too thin. If pads are not replaced and wear away too much they can damage the rotors or drums. Damaged rotors or drums can warp or crack and cause complete brake failure. Keeping up with brake pad maintenance can help keep you safe and prevent more costly repairs.

When should you service your brake system?

If you notice poor braking performance you should bring your vehicle in for a brake system inspection. Also consult your owners manual to find at what mileage the brake system should be serviced. Have your brakes inspected at every oil change.

How do you prevent brakes from wearing out quickly?

Several factors besides consistent maintenance can affect how long your brakes last. Driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and quality of brake lining material can all factor into the longevity of your brakes.
