It is imperative you keep your brakes in good repair. You never know when you might unexpectedly hit traffic and have to make a sudden stop, or when a kid might run out in the middle of the street without seeing you coming. Having them go out could cause a serious accident. Our professional opinion is that brake service should be inspected at least once a year, especially if you commute often and take long road trips.
We also recommend you get brake service if there is a low or spongy brake pedal, hard brake pedal, the check engine light stays on, or you continuously hear squealing or grinding sounds when pressing it. Our technicians here at Star Transmission & General Repair, Inc. in Bronx, NY understand the brake system; from the drum models to disc models and electronic anti-lock brake sensors, brake pedals to hydraulic brake fluid, and brake master cylinder to power brake booster. So call us today, and we’ll make sure you are up and going in no time.
