Brake service in Gladewater

Schedule Service

You think of your car as a way to get places, so it can be easy to think more about going than about stopping. The truth, though, is that slowing down and stopping safely is absolutely crucial for safe performance and handling. At our Gladewater service center, our experts can help ensure that your brakes are always up to the task!

The Importance of Good Brakes

When you hit the brake pedal, you expect your car to slow down and stop. This response counts on your brake pads doing their job, and it's a tough job indeed. Every time you use your brakes, the pads are pressed against the metal drums or rotors to slow your vehicle down. This means that brake pads are routinely subjected to extreme heat, friction, and stress.

As such, it's important to choose quality replacement pads when servicing your brakes. At our Gladewater car parts department, we have the OEM quality brake pads, rotors, drums, and other components you need for the stopping power you count on.

Is It Time to Replace Your Brakes?

The first sign that your brakes are wearing down is typically a noise. At first, the brakes will squeak or squeal when you use them; this is an intentional warning sign that comes from an indicator tab on the pads, which makes a sound when the pads are low. You should always have your brakes checked by a professional as soon as they start to squeak.

If you ignore the sound, it will eventually give way to a grinding noise that indicates a more serious problem, one that can result in more costly repairs. Of course, you should also see our team right away if you experience shaking when braking, or a loss or reduction in stopping power.
