Your brakes are the most important safety feature that your vehicle has to offer. Not only do they help you avoid unexpected road hazards, they also allow you as the driver to obey even the most basic traffic laws. We understand that a majority of Richmond drivers are more preoccupied with how fast their car, truck or SUV can go but it is important to be able to come to a safe and complete stop.
If it has been a while since you have had your brakes checked then you stop by our shop. We can quickly inspect your braking system as a whole, not just your brake pads. Yes, your brakes pads are the portion of your braking system that you are probably the most familiar with because they are the items most often replaced. But what you might not know is that if you vehicle is a classic or getting on in years, contaminants in your brake lines can cause your brake fluid to become acidic. The acidity in your brake lines can then damage the other more vulnerable components of your braking system.
This will lead to a more extensive or involved repair. Not to worry, we have a quick and easy solution here at Auto Check, we can quickly perform a brake fluid flush that will rid your braking system of its old acidic fluid and replace it with clean fluid that’s ready to help you stop your car whenever you need it.
