RPM Automotive Ltd can repair or replace all of your brakes' components, including:
Brake rotors and discs
When bringing your vehicle to a stop, the pads and rotors work together, with the pads compressing against the rotor to slow the vehicle. The friction creates a large amount of heat, and if this heat is not properly dissipated, it can wear down the brake's components. Wheel cylinders, callipers, brake hoses, shoes and drums can contribute to many problems when braking. The symptoms of these are- squealing noise, grinding noise, brake pedal shake and pulling to one side when braking. Brake inspections help ensure you are not incurring additional costs on preventable repairs.
Brakes require regular maintenance to ensure safety. Sounds to listen for include squeaking noises caused by friction of the brake lining. This may damage the brake drums and motors in the long run.
Most service schedules recommend having your mechanic check your brakes every 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first). This professional estimate is based on average driving habits and normal wear and tear. We encourage you to check your manufacturer's maintenance schedule to see when your brakes should be serviced. Keep more frequent checks in mind if you use your vehicle professionally with lots of stops and starts.
Some driving habits will wear out brakes more quickly.
Have your brakes checked regularly and try to avoid these unsafe practices, which can damage your brakes:

Failed brake caliper due to lack of maintenance
“My daughter's vehicle wouldn't start, and since we live in a different town, we had to make all the arrangements for diagnostics and repairs over the phone. Kevin, who took my call, was very professional. The car was in and out within 24 hours and we even received a text after the fact, with a copy of the courtesy inspection. Thanks for the great service, RPM!”
