A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features,
and we want to make sure that Rose Car Care customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads
are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not
comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 651-646-7742 or
visit us in Roseville and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's
safety and reliability.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Rose Car Care will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Rose Car Care as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Rose Car Care about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Rose Car Care where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
What People Say About Us
Javier is wonderful, fair and thorough. Recommend his shop highly.
Javier has achieved the seemingly impossible and fixed my air conditioning (for far less than I thought it would cost). Since he fixed it, I have been reveling in the luxury of ice-cold air pouring from my a/c vents on hot days with the windows firmly shut.
I absolutely LOVE Rose Car Care!! Javier and the team there are fantastic to work with!! They are honest (instead of recommending all sorts of work you don't need), they charge reasonable rates, and the quality of work itself is wonderful!
