The new car smell may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean your car doesn’t deserve the best – even if it’s seen better days. You don’t want just anyone popping the hood and poking around. Look for a certified mechanic who has experience working with your car’s make and model. Also, keep in mind, there are many different areas a technician can specialize in. You’ll want to choose someone who has A5 Brakes certification.
Recommendations, either via word-of-mouth or internet reviews, are a great way to find a stellar mechanic. If a repair business has been around for a long time and has a devoted following, you can bet they operate with intelligence and integrity.
Repair in your driveway should be a professional experience. You’ll know you’re in good hands when a mechanic, in a clean uniform, arrives in a company vehicle equipped with tools and car parts to complete the job. Time to raise your standards.
Brake rotor quality varies, as does the caliber of the work being performed. Always ask about warranties when you schedule an appointment. Warranties offer quality assurance and protect you in the rare case that something goes wrong with your repair.
Check to make sure the shop is working with only the best, aka ASE certified professionals. In particular, you’ll want to ask whether the mechanic assigned to your car has A5 Brake certification. And if the shop doesn’t have the right credentials, move on.
The best shops have a loyal clientele – and a packed schedule to prove it. Online recommendations or word-of-mouth suggestions will help you find a mechanic with an outstanding reputation.
A good shop will take the time to explain the brake work your car needs in detail. They will also be honest about pricing (including giving you an estimate for parts and labor) and won’t try to add on any unnecessary repairs.
Brake repair is far too important to gamble with. Ask about warranty coverage when you schedule your appointment. A sound warranty provides peace of mind that you’re getting OEM-grade brake rotors and expert repair.
Brake rotors are essential part of your brake system. Brake rotors are present on all disc brakes, and they’re actually fairly simple part of your brake. When you hit the brake pedal, brake fluid is sent towards the brakes, to help apply enough pressure to the brake pads to slow down the moving wheel and its rotor. That pressure initiated from the brake pedal goes to the brake calipers and brake pads, which clamp down on the brake rotors with friction. The rotor, which is attached to the wheel, has a hard time spinning with the friction from the brake pads clenched around them, and that slows your wheel down.
There is no such thing as good types of vibrations and pulsations when it come to your brake and your rotor. If you find your car shaking and quaking when you depress the brake pedal, then the rotors are likely warped and your brake pads can't slow down the wheel smoothly. Simply put, if your rotor is warped, your brake pads can't do their job and you probably need a rotor replacement in order to keep your brake system running smoothly.
Look, I get it. There are lots of noises your car makes, and it’s hard to keep up with all of them. But the chattering noise coming from a warped rotor is pretty unique, and you’ll only hear it when you’re applying pressure to the brake. Now that you’ve heard it, here’s the bad news: your brake rotors are warped and you need a brake rotor replacement.Get a Quote 12-Month | 12,000-Mile Warranty
Do you really need to be told the brake system is the most important safety feature on your car? Have you tried driving without a brake? Don’t answer that.
A warped or worn rotor will inhibit the functionality of you brake pads and overall brake system, compromising your ability to smoothly brake your vehicle. The failing rotor will make it hard for your brake pads to slow down the wheel, and brake the car. Without a brake rotor replacement, the warped rotor will only get worse, and the brake will follow. Be smart. Take care of your brake system and replace your rotor if your brake is acting up. Trust us, rotors are kind of important.
