Your brakes are your lifeline when you’re behind the wheel of your car. Without them, you can not stop and you will certainly get into an accident. If you think you are in need of a brake repair in Oklahoma City, you should not hesitate to bring the car into an auto repair shop for an inspection, suggests Richard Garrett, manager of the Aamco Transmissions in Oklahoma City (Rockwell). He invites customers, who might need a brake repair in Oklahoma City, to consider Aamco, which offers a clean and friendly environment and pays close attention to customer service. Here, Garrett answers some frequently asked questions about Oklahoma City brake repair:
Do you offer a brake inspection?
Brake inspection is important in diagnosing and repairing a problem. It gives mechanics the chance to analyze the system to see what is working and what isn’t and it can give clues as to what needs to be done. At Aamco, customers get a free brake inspection.
What is the warranty like when you have brakes repaired?
Aamco customers receive a national warranty on all work done, which means you are covered at the 900-plus Aamco shops in the United States. Warranties are essential because they give you a guarantee that if the problem keeps arising, you can return to the mechanic for help without constantly doling out more cash.
What are some signs that the brakes are in need of help?
People should pay close attention to how their brakes are functioning. Some signs that indicate brake trouble include: the foot peddle moving up or down or pulsating when you apply the brakes. Take note of anything strange when you’re pressing on the brake. Loud squeaking noises are also a sign of a brake issue. And the car pulling to the left or right when you hit the brakes could, but does not necessarily have to be, a problem with the brakes. Of course, if you’re having trouble stopping, you should consult a professional mechanic as soon as possible.
How often should I get the brakes checked and maintained?
Good maintenance of the car and its brakes can prevent many issues down the road. But many people don’t know how often to provide maintenance or inspection to their vehicle. In addition to paying attention to the car and things like its noises, you should have the brakes inspected every 5,000 miles or as needed.
