Where can you go for complete brake service or brake repair in Phoenix? The best answer is the Earnhardt Lexus service department.
Our Lexus certified technicians are well-trained in every aspect of today’s safety systems, especially the brakes. They have a well-stocked shop with the tools and equipment needed to do the job. The parts department provides them with the OEM parts they need to ensure that the repair is done to the high standards set by Lexus.
These are clear signs that your brakes need attention:
• Your brake or ABS light is blinking or steadily lit.
• The brake pedal can touch the floor (or almost).
• You’ve lost confidence in the vehicle’s stopping power.
• There’s a squeal when you hit the brakes.
• A grinding noise occurs during braking.
Did you know that your brake pads are there to protect the much more costly mechanical parts? That’s why they were developed. If they are changed at the recommended service interval, you may never have to worry about expensive brake repair.
The other essential brake maintenance is fluid replacement. Fluids become dirty over time, and they can turn to sludge. As this process happens, they become less and less capable of lubricating the brakes. You may notice a difference in brake pedal feel if the fluid has been allowed to get too dirty.
Poor brake fluid has been associated with increasing heat with the system. Water in the brake lines can lead to corrosion, affecting the master cylinder and calipers. On the other hand, it’s inexpensive to have the fluid replaced by experts at Earnhardt Lexus.
If you go to a non-certified service shop, you may be offered ebuilt or inferior brake products. Instead it is important to insist on Genuine Lexus components. These OEM parts are sure to be made to the exact specifications required by Lexus when the vehicle was made. Your brake pads and fluids will perform better. If you should ever need mechanical parts such as drums, rotors, and calipers, OEM parts are vital to the success of the repair.
This is especially important with all of the systems that now rely on the brakes as an essential part of their operation. This includes traction controls, stability systems, and the latest driver assistance aids.
