Brake Repair & Brake Pad Replacement in Dallas, TX

The ASE-Certified Mechanics in Our Brake Shop Will Keep Your Car Safe on the Road

There are some auto repairs and maintenanceASE Certified Tag appointments that can wait until a more convenient time. However, issues with your car’s brakes can’t wait. The safety of you and your family, as well as all the other cars on the road with you, is too important for delay.

Such things as new and unusual noises, the car pulling to one side, strange “metal on metal” sounds, new vibrations, a spongy brake pedal, or the warning light on your dash suddenly appearing may be alerting you to brake problems. Set an appointment right away to have the problems diagnosed. This will save you time and money by catching small problems before they become large, expensive brake repairs.

Routine Brake Inspection in Dallas

We recommend having your vehicle’s brakes checked every six months or 6,000 miles, whichever comes first. Simply add a brake inspection to your list of other maintenance appointments. This will help prevent emergencies on the road, which always seem to happen at inconvenient times. It’s simple to add this free brake check to other routine services, such as an oil change or AC check.

What is Checked During a Brake Inspection?

  • Brake pads (and/or brake shoes)
  • Brake calipers
  • Brake rotors (and/or brake drums)
  • Wheel cylinders
  • Hardware (springs and adjusters)
  • Hoses
  • Parking brake cables
  • Brake fluid condition
  • Wheel bearings and grease seals
  • Master cylinder fluid exchange
  • ABS module
  • Brake lines

After this thorough brake inspection service is completed, our brake mechanics will test-drive your vehicle to make sure everything is working properly. If any repairs are indicated, you will be given a written quote so you can ask questions and make a decision on how to proceed.

Brake Pads 101

Brake pads are an important part of your car’s braking system. They are flat pieces of steel with friction material on one side and play a key role in bringing your car to a stop when you step on the brake pedal. The pads come into contact with the brake discs and the friction causes the wheels to stop.

As you can imagine, this causes tremendous stress on the pads. Eventually they wear down due to this friction, especially if you:

  • drive in heavy traffic, with frequent stopping.
  • keep one foot on the brake all the time.
  • frequently brake at the last minute.
  • drive more than average.

Older vehicles may have brake drums rather than pads. However, the stopping process is much the same.

Driver’s Edge can help with any brake pad replacement needs!

Different types of brake pads

Drivers generally have a choice of three types of brake pads: ceramic, semi-metallic, or organic.
