BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Absolute Auto Repair Center, we want our Fitchburg customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 978-342-3100, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Absolute Auto Repair Center offers.

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Absolute Auto Repair Center where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Absolute Auto Repair Center about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Absolute Auto Repair Center as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Absolute Auto Repair Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    Another local garage failed my emergency brakes during annual inspection. I was a little skeptical so I brought my vehicle to Absolute for a second opinion. I was so glad I did. They found nothing wrong with the brakes, saving me the cost of unneeded repairs. Additionally, they checked all the vehicle systems and sent me an email detailing any future repairs I might need. This was color-coded, based on how urgent the needed repairs were. They also took photos so I could see what they talking about. As a former tech geek, I was impressed. I would definitely recommend Absolute to everyone for auto repairs. They are honest and dependable.

    I came in with an unfixable, damaged tire and drove out the next day with a brand new one. Stephanie was great at the front desk and the people who installed the new tire did everything they were supposed to do. I'll go back for sure.

    Very friendly staff. Every time I come in I always feel that they take great care of my car as well as educate me about what's being done to it. They don't take advantage of you, they're real about what needs to be done and what can wait.
