Why is it important to get my brakes serviced?
Making routine brake service appointment ensures your brakes will be there when you need them most. Brake pads, shoes, drums and rotors will wear down over time, which can lead to damage for the brake’s hydraulic components such as the calipers, wheel cylinder and brake hoses. The brake system is vital to your vehicle control and failing to maintain it can lead to costly repairs or loss of braking.
