Slow Down Safely–Stop On a Dime!
The most important safety component of your vehicle is the braking system. Normal road travel is meant to wear down the brake pads, so just like tires, you will need to have your eye on the condition of your brakes at all times. Depending on what type of driver you are, you may need a brake repair a lot sooner or a lot later than the average motorists. Drivers who tend to brake late and often will need to replace brake pads sooner than later. Others who are seldom on the road and are rarely caught in that stop-and-go city traffic will have brakes that need less attention. Whichever type of driver you are, Whitlock Automotive in Dripping Springs, TX will tell you everything you need to know about your braking system. Stop by our facility for a quick but thorough brake inspection. The goal is to always be two steps ahead of your braking system, meaning we know (you know) well in advance if you need a brake repair service.
Complete Brake Repairs–OE Part Replacements
We make sure your braking system is never compromised by malfunction or misuse. Owners should let us know as soon as they notice any brake performance issue with their vehicle. The sooner we can get a look at it, the better chance you have of sparing other brake components like rotors. The most obvious warning sign is a high-pitched squealing noise when you apply your brakes. This is not a time to panic, but it is definitely time to schedule an appointment with Whitlock Automotive. The braking system was designed to make this noise to alert drivers when the brake pads have worn too low. Sometimes this noise can be missed because the windows are rolled up or the radio is too loud. However, most other motorists and pedestrians will hear you coming. If you continue to drive, ignoring the warning signs, your brake pads will eventually wear to a scraping sound like sandpaper. This should definitely get your attention and get you to our facility asap. Soon, the scraping turns into metal-on-metal grinding and that will cause damage to other components that will need to be replaced.
