How confident are you with the stopping power of your car? Our brakes can become an afterthought. They work hundreds of times each week. Are you and your family going to be able to stop in time?
People forget to check on their brakes. But it’s OK – Christian Brothers Automotive does a complimentary Courtesy Inspection every time you have your car in for service or repair. We’ll let you know if you need new brake pads or rotors or other brake system repair or maintenance. Every Courtesy Inspection involves expert, ASE certified technicians removing all four tires and wheels to inspect the brake pads and rotors for wear. We’ll never recommend brake service or repair that isn’t necessary.
Like every service at Christian Brothers, you get more than the ordinary. We know your family rides with you, and we want to make sure your vehicle is safe and ready to stop when you need it to.
At Christian Brothers, we do things the right way. We will never sell you only brake pads and we will always recommend only the right components recommended by the manufacturer. Each vehicle is different. The alloys used in brake pads and rotors are sometimes very specific. The wrong pads can mean significant damage to rotors and other vital parts. The expert technicians at Christian Brothers will always check to make sure your vehicle only receives the brake pads and components that are specifically engineered for it.
Every brake job means resurfacing the rotors. The brake pads are just half of the relationship – without properly serviced rotors, your car will not stop as it should. Every rotor is resurfaced according to manufacturer specifications and lubricated properly to make sure the brake pads get the maximum durability. These steps can make a major difference in your car’s braking performance.
Fluid is an often overlooked component of the brake system. Brake fluid is checked for quantity, but not usually checked for quality. Your brake fluid can become dirty and create problems when it’s supposed to be flowing to the calipers to stop your car. Clean, new brake fluid can help extend the life of your entire brake system and save you money on costly brake repairs in the future.
“This is the second vehicle I have had brake work done to at Christian Brothers. Excellent job both times. Much cheaper than the chain brake shop. The work was always completed when they said it would be done. I would recommend Christian Brothers to anybody.”

When you step on the brake pedal, the car stops – it’s that simple. But behind the scenes, your car’s brake system is performing a detailed balancing act to help you stop safely and smoothly every time. If a component becomes worn or damaged, that system breaks down and your vehicle won’t stop as it should.
When your foot presses down on the brake pedal, the cylinder delivers brake fluid to the calipers that move your brake pads into place. The pads make contact with the rotors and create friction that stops your car. It sounds simple, but, like virtually everything else on a modern car, there are dozens of parts and systems involved and a computer running the show.
Hear that screeching, squealing sound when you come to a stop? Fortunately you can usually hear your brake problems coming. That sound typically means your brake pads are worn down. This isn’t a sound to ignore – you need a brake inspection quickly. If you ignore it for too long, the excess heat can cause serious damage to your rotors and lead to much more expensive service and repair.
If a brake warning light appears, you should visit your local Christian Brothers Automotive immediately. They can perform a full system inspection and pinpoint the problem to minimize the cost of your repair. No guessing, no unnecessary parts and not outrageous bill because of work your car didn’t need.
