Noisy Brakes?–Bring Them to Us!
Your vehicle’s most important safety feature is the braking system. It’s not road-ready if it hasn’t had a proper brake check, brake service or maintenance inspection. Our team, at TGK Automotive in Eden Prairie, provides quick but thorough brake checks to let you know the exact condition of your brakes. Any brake repairs or maintenance services that we provide will return your vehicle to its original condition. Pay attention to your braking system’s early warning signs. We’ve all heard the high-pitched squealing either coming from our own vehicle or the vehicle next to us at the stoplight. This sound tells us that it’s time to visit our shop because your vehicle need some attention. The braking system was designed to give you this early alert that gives you plenty of time to get to TGK Automotive.
Brake Pad & Brake Rotor Replacements
The brake pads are designed to give you an early warning when they have worn too low. Every time you apply the brakes, you’ll hear the squealing noise if your brakes need service attention. Treat your brake pads like you would your vehicle’s tires. They are both will eventually need to be replaced because of wear-and-tear. Your driving habits will determine at which service intervals you will need to perform brake repairs. Our brake repair specialists will perform brake pad replacements in time to protect other braking system components, like brake rotors. If you continue to drive with squealing brakes, the brake pads will wear all the way through to the metal. This squealing sound will turn to a scraping sound, like sandpaper, and finally to a metal-on-metal grinding noise. This is an emergency which may leave you stranded on the side of the road. Before you’re carried to our shop on the back of a tow truck, stop by our facility for an early brake check or brake repair service.
Schedule Your Brake Repair Service
Timing is everything when it comes to your auto repairs and maintenance. The cause of most expensive auto repair services and brake repairs is neglect. Sometimes, drivers are not aware of their braking system’s true condition. When the windows are rolled up or the stereo is too loud, it’s hard to hear the warning signs. It’s a good idea to drive with the windows down and the stereo off so you can “hear” if the brakes are “telling” you that you need a brake repair. Give us a call today at 952-941-3481 to schedule your next brake repair service appointment. You can save time by scheduling right now using our convenient online scheduling system.
