Why Choose Us for Brake Service?
Going to a less qualified mechanic for a brake replacement may not seem like a big deal. However, relying on a mechanic without the proper skills, certification, or parts to handle your Mercedes-Benz could be a big mistake. Fletcher Jones Imports is a certified dealership with a team of factory-trained technicians on hand to take care of brake replacements and much, much more. We use original production components that have been designed to fit our customers’ vehicles, such as brake pads and rotors made from precisely engineered metal compounds.
When to Get Your Brakes Replaced
The suggested interval for brake replacement service depends largely on individual driving habits, road conditions, and climate. For example, if you spend a lot of time in stop-and-go city traffic, you may need to change your brakes more often than a driver who lives in a rural area. Thankfully, there are some telltale signs that suggest it’s time for brake replacement service:
- Grinding sounds
- Vibrating brake pedal or steering wheel
- “Pulling” to the left or right during braking
- “Sinking” brake pedal
- Lurching forward during braking
- Increased stopping distance
To stay ahead of the curve, you can also bring your vehicle in for a Service A* or Service B** appointment at our shop, and we’ll let you know if it’s time to replace your pads, rotors, calipers, or discs.
Brake Repair: When is it Necessary?
While regular service can prevent many brake-related problems, occasionally other issues can arise within the brake system. A few common brake repairs that can be made include:
- Repairing leaking brake lines: If your pedal becomes too easy or too hard to push down, there may either be air in your brake line or it may have become dislodged and is leaking. Repairing the brake lines go beyond your typical brake replacement.
- Remachining warped rotors: Rotors can become warped due to heat or incorrect tightening of the wheel. Depending on the extent of the warping, you may need the rotors replaced, or they may be able to be resurfaced. If your rotors are warped, you may notice either a vibrating steering wheel or a pulsating brake pedal.
Along with brake system malfunctioning that can cause your car to pull to one side, these are some of the most common reasons vehicles need their brakes repaired vs. replaced. While a replacement often includes replacing pads and potentially rotors, a repair can be extended to other parts of the system. Not sure if your vehicle needs a brake replacement or repair?
