Brake Repair & Service | Santa Rosa Transmission and Car Care

The braking system is the most important system in your car for auto repair and/or auto service. Brakes are actually energy conversion devices that convert the kinetic energy (momentum) of your vehicle into thermal energy (heat). When you step on the brakes, you command a stopping force 10 times as powerful as the force that puts the car in motion. The braking system can exert thousands of pounds of pressure on each of the four brakes. If your brakes fail, the results can be disastrous. Keeping brakes in good working order is a priority, and we can help make your car safer with a thorough inspection, and if necessary, replace or repair parts to improve your safety and stopping power.

We offer complete brake service and brake repair. Brake inspection includes:

  • Inspection of the brake pads and shoes, and documenting the remaining thickness, or life of the tire
  • Inspection for leaks from wheel cylinders, lines, calipers and master cylinder
  • Realign front disc brakes and replacement of brake shoes
  • Rotor and drum refinishing
