Why a Brake Inspection Is So Important

At Brown’s Quality Automotive Services, we offer free brake checks and give you a free estimate on what we find is wrong. With brake replacement you really do get what you pay for.

How Our Brake Repair Shop is Different
We only do complete and safe brake replacement, read below to see how our brake and rotor replacement services are different.
WE TEST DRIVE – We will take your vehicle for a test ride to verify what the problem is. Most brake repair facilities will not do this with a normal brake replacement job.
COMPLETE BRAKE INSPECTION – We thoroughly check all four brakes by placing your vehicle on a rack to give us the best vantage of your complete brake system. All problems are documented, and we will advise you on the best course of action, explaining everything in detail.
A FREE ESTIMATE IS GIVEN – On all free brake checks, we will provide you a free written estimate to make any, if needed repairs to your vehicle. And if you decide to use Brown’s Quality Automotive Services for your brake repair, or replacement, we stick to that estimate, unless otherwise approved by you.
BRAKE FLUID IS CHANGED – We take the extra step to change your old brake fluid with fresh new fluid. This is an extra measure to ensure your safety. An average driver in the U.S. puts on 10-15,000 miles per year, and on average uses their brakes 75,000 per year. The boiling point on old brake fluid drops after 3 years to a point where it is no longer considered safe by federal minimum standards. Also, in wet climates such as in the Northwest, debris and moisture can get into your brake fluid and cause significant damage. Most other brake shops don’t do this, and if you ask, they charge extra for it.
ROTORS ARE MEASURED AND CHECKED – Thickness and variation of all rotors are carefully measured. Variations or warping can cause vibrations, pulsating and even sometimes jerking when the brakes are applied. If rotors need to be resurfaced or replaced, we will let you know at time of inspection. The rotor vanes, or cooling fins, are checked for mud, brake dust and other debris and cleaned. This ensures your brakes can dissipate heat as they were originally designed to do. This again is an extra step that a lot of brake repair facilities don’t do.
WHEEL HUBS CLEANED – Dirt, brake dust and rust build-up is removed from the hub and the hardware replaced. Not properly cleaning the hub can cause lateral run out. (See next step) Again, this is a step that many brake repair shops will skip.
LATERAL RUN OUT CHECKED – New or resurfaced rotors are checked for lateral run out when attached to the hub. The term Lateral Run Out refers to when the rotor, while spinning, is not perpendicular to the wheel causing it to wobble. This causes extra wear on the rotor and will be accompanied by pedal pulsation.
PARTS ARE LUBRICATED – We lubricate all metal to metal parts to ensure a quiet braking system.
CALIPERS ARE READJUSTED – Brake pedal is gently pumped to get the calipers readjusted and any remaining air out of the braking system. Pumping too fast during this step can damage the master cylinder.
WARRANTY IN WRITING – We warranty our brake jobs to be trouble free for 12 months or 12,000 miles. We only use the finest brake system components, and we are so confident in them that we back every brake job we do with this guarantee.
