BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR


A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Leo's Auto Care customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 704-521-4976 or visit us in Charlotte and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.



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 Leo's Auto Care 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 Leo's Auto Care 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 Leo's Auto Care 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. Leo's Auto Care will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Was on a trip from FL to OH and heard some very concerning noises coming from my car with no way to diagnose on my own. They inspected my vehicle and recommended that I get new brakes. I told them I have a local mechanic in OH that I prefer to work with. They assured me that I was more than safe to get home and have the repair made there. They gave me peace of mind when they could have taken advantage of me and said they needed to be replaced on the spot. They also helped tuck a few wires as a courtesy that were exposed and hanging from my car from a bad trailer hitch installation. All around great experience. Juan was very helpful and honest and I would highly recommend Leo's!
