Brake Servicing

While you can live without air conditioning, the brakes must work. Effective braking time and quick stopping should never be questioned with any vehicle you drive. And brake servicing should never be put-off when a problem is evident; a poor brake system or worn components can lead to devastating consequences. Common braking symptoms include squeaking or grinding when the brakes are applied, soft or spongy brake pedal that requires pumping, increased stopping time, and pulling or vibration as the brakes are applied.

Any of the above symptoms are good indicators that your brake system definitely needs to be checked. Our auto techs at Neil's Service Center can quickly conduct a thorough brake system inspection and perform the following brake repairs:

  • Brake Pad / Shoe Replacement
  • Caliper Repair / Replacement
  • Rotor / Drum Replacement
  • Brake System Diagnostics
  • Rotor / Drum Refinishing

Engine Diagnostics

Sometimes it seems that our vehicles have minds of their own — starting one day but not the next, triggering warning lights that randomly turn off and on, and making strange noises around this turn but not that one. It is during these intermittent scenarios when it becomes slightly more difficult to detect the exact issue. Fortunately, at Neil's Service Center we use the most up-to-date data information systems to effectively pinpoint the mechanical issues that occur in today's sophisticated cars and trucks.
