Your car needs brakes that work their best at all times to ensure safe stopping while driving. No matter what you drive, our factory-trained and ASE-certified technicians at Libertyville Chevrolet can do expert brake services on it. We have a full selection of OEM and aftermarket brake parts to get any brake system working its best. That will help make sure your car, pickup truck, minivan, or SUV has the best brakes for handling four seasons of driving weather in the Midwest.
We remove all four wheels and thoroughly inspect the brakes on each one. We check the brake pad thickness, rotor surface, and calipers for proper operation. We do brake pad replacement when they are near their wear limits and resurface or replace the rotors if they are damaged and beyond repair. The calipers also get replaced if they do not work correctly. When all the parts and brake components work like new, we exchange the brake fluid to give you the best possible stopping power. With new brake pads and the brakes in like-new condition, you should have good stopping power for at least another 20,000 miles. Every six months, minor brake service, such as bleeding the brake lines and inspecting the brake pads, will keep the brakes working great in the meantime.
Modern disc brakes have pads with friction material that grips the rotors on each wheel and brings your car to a safe stop. Those brake pads are designed to be slightly softer than the brake rotors so that only the pads wear out over time. Most brake pads last between 20,000 and 30,000 miles before they lose too much brake pad material. When that happens, the metal backing plates will damage the rotors every time you use your brakes. When that happens, you usually will hear loud metallic scraping and scratching noises coming from your wheels whenever you stop. Brake services prevent that from happening and ensure you have the best braking power at all times.
If your car’s brakes are acting up, we can help. Just schedule an online appointment for brake services at Libertyville Chevrolet right now. You also can just stop in when you have time. We will work your car into the system and get it driving its best in no time. When finished, your vehicle will be safe for more travels in Illinois.
