Vehicle Brakes 101

Your vehicle brake system is interconnected and relies on each individual brake part to function successfully and safely. To be specific, whenever you press down on the brake pedal, you activate the cylinder that releases brake fluid to the calipers, which then initiates your brake pads. Your brake pads then apply pressure to the rotors, creating friction needed to stop your car. All your brake parts work collectively to perform one important function: a safe and precise stop.


What Is a Brake Inspection?

A comprehensive, extensive, and regular brake inspection is needed for you to drive your car safely. In order to detect a problem or any signs of wear, you can rely on our certified technicians, who can spot potential issues and have the knowledge and precision to optimize brake performance. When we're done, you'll have complete assurance knowing your ride is in tip-top condition to take you anywhere of your liking. A brake inspection at Romay's Auto Service includes checking your brake:

  • pads (and/or shoes)
  • calipers
  • rotors (and/or drums)
  • wheel cylinders
  • springs
  • hoses
  • parking brake cables
  • brake fluid levels and condition
  • wheel bearings and grease seals
  • master cylinder fluid exchange


How Often Should I Get a Brake Inspection?

Similar to your doctor's check-ups, you should get a brake inspection yearly. An annual check-up will not only give you the confidence and direction from our expert technicians, but it will also provide you with more insight into your vehicle's condition. We can spot the minor repairs early so that you can avoid bigger and costly ones down the road. If you're experiencing any weaknesses in your brake system, then please come by Romay's Auto Service for a complete brake inspection.
