Brake Service and Repair
Does your vehicle vibrate as you are stopping? Does it make a screeching sound as you stop? Do you have no pedal resistance? Is your parking brake useless? We can help.
We can solve all of these problems and more for Domestic, Asian and European vehicles. All at the same, every day price.
We can machine rotors, replace rotors, replace calipers, replace brake pads, clean pad guides, lubricate guides, repair parking brakes, convert brake systems and flush brake fluid with ASE certified technicians.
We will give you the option of economy, premium and/or dealer parts. We will explain the differences and let you make your decision as to which parts will go on your car. Courtesy recognizes itself as being in a “service” business and each employee acts accordingly. No “up-selling” and no “pressure selling”. We are here for you.
We do not advertise some absurd price which does not include labor as others do. We have a very straight forward pricing approach for all services including brake service.
If you bring your vehicle to Courtesy, we will ask why you think you need brakes. We will test drive your vehicle and then put it on a lift so we can remove all four wheels to inspect your vehicle’s brakes. (Counter to popular belief, no Courtesy technician can see through metal.) For this inspection we will charge $20.00. We have on several occasions stopped our services at this point because the customer did not need brakes. However, if brakes are required, we will call 2-3 suppliers (we have seven to choose from) looking for the best value from a supplier (this keeps the suppliers honest), add our fixed margin, multiply the factory published standard labor time times our labor rate of $88.42 per hour and add that to the part price. We will add the amount the State wants and that will be your price. It is a simple formula and that is the way we like it. Our customer’s seem to like that too.
