Drive Safer–Quality Brake Check Service
Enjoy carefree road travel with excellent brake system performance. Potomac Creek Automotive in Fredericksburg, VA has the skills and equipment to keep your brakes in the best condition possible. Your vehicle will only be safe if the braking system is fully operational. Good brakes allow you to stop on a dime in an emergency, as well as slow down around tight curves without skidding or locking up. To keep your brakes performing well, drivers need to pay attention to the warning signs. Your braking system will start “talking” to you when it needs some professional attention. The sooner you let us perform a quality brake check service, the easier any brake repair service will be. The early warning signs are mostly audible. This is NOT the time to ignore or delay services. When you wait too long to get your brake repair or maintenance services, you run the risk of doing irreparable damages.
Noisy Brakes?–We Can Fix That!
When you press your brake pedal and hear a high-pitched squeal, this means the brake pads have worn too low. The braking system was designed with its own warning sign to let you know when it’s time to come to Potomac Creek Automotive. It’s easy to miss this warning sign if you have the windows up or the car stereo turned on. Driving with your window down is a good way to hear these warning signs. Other vehicles and pedestrians will be able to hear you coming from a mile away. If your vehicle’s brakes are making more noise than you’re comfortable with, we can take care of that today for you. After the high-pitched squeal will be a metal-on-metal scraping noise. This alert is an emergency, so you should stop driving your vehicle immediately. The longer you drive with your brakes in this condition, the worse the scraping sound will be. Your vehicle will not be able to slow down without an alarming grinding noise, that can affect your braking system’s parts–brake rotors, calipers, drums, etc.
