Brakes

Can you hear an awful squealing or grinding sound when you brake? Bring your vehicle into Davies Auto Care and our professionals will explain exactly what brake repair service is required.

  • 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.
 
  • 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. Davies Auto Care will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action
 
  • 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 caliber 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 Davies Auto Care as soon as possible

  • 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 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 Davies Auto Care about when it’s time for a brake fluid flush.
 
  • Wheel Bearings. Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Davies Auto Care can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
 
  • 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 Davies Auto Care where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Tires

At Davie Auto Care, we care about keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape, so you not only have a smooth, enjoyable ride, but a safe one as well! Tires are an important safety factor for your car because they are the foundation. Yet, they are often overlooked. Even if they don?t get punctured or damaged, they will naturally lose air over time, which is why we recommend having your tire pressure checked once a month.

Tires Cathedral City CaHaving your tires inspected by a professional is a good idea since human eyes do not always notice tire irregularities, such as tire tread wear and tear. However, if you pay attention to your car and how it handles, you may be able to suspect a problem before any severe tire damage occurs. When you?re driving and your car rattles abnormally, it could be evidence that your tires are misaligned. Or if your turns are not as responsive, your tires may be low on air, whereas if your ride is excessively bumpy, they may be overinflated. If you want to extend the life of your tires, rotating them every 7,000 miles will be beneficial. Properly inflating your tires will also help improve car functions such as braking and handling as well as improves fuel efficiency. The most common reasons why tires need replacement are if they are damaged or just have had become too old by the normal wear and tear that will eventually become unsafe to drive. We supply different type of tires such as:

  • All-seasonal
  • Winter-use
  • Off-road
  • Performance
  • All-terrain

If you suspect an issue with your vehicle’s tires, stop by Davies Auto Care today to have one of our experts check them! Don’t let worn or damaged tires become a safety hazard. We are here to service your car with any of its maintenance or repair needs!
