BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Bretts Automotive Service 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 315-592-9538 or visit us in Fulton 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 Bretts Automotive Service 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 Bretts Automotive Service 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 Bretts Automotive Service 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. Bretts Automotive Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

What People Say About Us


  • -Cory W.

    I had an emergency repair on a holiday. Brett and his mechanics were very professional and easy going. They properly diagnosed the problem the first time, had the part rush delivered and had us back on the road quickly. My family and I are very grateful for Brett and his crew. UPDATE: After I wrote my initial review, Brett called me to see how the vehicle was running. This is the best customer service I've ever had from an auto mechanic. I'd give 6 stars if I could.


  • -Derek W.

    They had great service! I would go there again in a heartbeat. Real friendly and wouldn't take advantage of someone that didn't have much mechanical skill. (I seen first hand them explaining everything thoroughly to an older lady saying what she can wait on)
