BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Discount Auto Clinic, we want our Spring 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 281-251-4700, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Discount Auto Clinic offers.

    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.

    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. Discount Auto Clinic will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    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 caliber 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 Discount Auto Clinic as soon as possible.

    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 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 Discount Auto Clinic about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

    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 Discount Auto Clinic where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Testimonials

  • Discount Auto Clinic was recommended by a friend and their reviews were solid so I took a chance. Mike is the owner and he's genuine, straight up and explained the entire process...Car runs great and it was money well spent. Got an excellent warranty as well which is unusual for a transmission rebuild. Ask for Mike or Shelby!

  • Excellent service. My daughter was next door in line to take her driving test. They told her the brake light was out, so she could not take the test unless I had the light repaired and she returned to the line by 3:20 pm. It was 2:55 pm. We drove to this place and explained what happened. There were several cars in the bay, but the mechanic stopped, ordered the part, and had us up and running by 3:06 pm.

  • The service and staff, especially Mike, Shelby and Travis were friendly, helpful, proficient and genuine. Mike even helped by suggesting several ways for me to save money on my car! I really believe they had my best interest at heart and were not just out to make a buck... Fast service at a fair price is hard to find. This is definitely my go to place from now on!
