Lamb’s Top-Quality Brake Service in San Marcos, TX
If you’ve noticed problems with your brakes, don’t wait to come in for a brake check at the San Marcos location of Lamb’s Tire & Automotive. Unusual noises, brake fluid leaks, or less resistance in your brakes can all be signs that you need brake service.
Regular Brake Inspections Ensure Your Safety
If you add a complete brake inspection to your schedule of routine maintenance, you can save both time and money. Small problems can be repaired before turning into larger, more expensive repairs later.
The general recommendation is to have your brakes inspected every 6,000 miles or six months. Check the manufacturer’s recommendation in your owner’s manual for the specific schedule that’s right for your car or truck, or ask our expert brake technicians for the inspection schedule that is right for your car or truck.
A full-service brake inspection at Lamb’s Tire & Automotive includes:
- Checking brake fluid levels
- Measuring brake pads and brake calipers
- Assessing wear on drums
- Measuring wear on rotors
- Inspecting parking/emergency brake
- Test driving
After the inspection is completed, you will be given a free written quote if any other work needs to be done on your brakes. And Lamb’s offers added-value assistance with a coupons page for brake specials as well as savings on many of our other automotive services.
Warning Signs of Brake Trouble
It’s smart to pay attention to your brakes so that problems can be corrected early. These are some of the indicators of braking system issues:
- Slow stopping when braking
- Soft or spongy brake pedal when stopping
- ABS light on dash illuminated
- Puddles of yellow liquid under the vehicle
- Grinding and other noises when braking
- Vibrations when stopping
- Less than ¼ inch on brake pads
- Pulling to one side when braking
Bring your car or truck in to have our ASE-certified brake technicians assess these signs of trouble to determine the cause and how to fix them. The time it takes is worth your safety on the road.
Help Your Brakes Last Longer
You can take some simple steps to get more life from your brakes:
- Stop gradually whenever possible
- Leave plenty of room in front of you to avoid sudden stops
- Don’t drive with one foot on the brake all the time
- Reduce the weight in the trunk or truck bed as much as possible
