Brake Repair in Chantilly, VA

Brake Service Experts--GT Peace Automotive

At GT Peace Automotive, our technicians can identify the level of damage and discuss repair possibilities with you. Many drivers aren't aware of how often they use their brakes and the impact of driving behavior, such as "riding the brake" instead of adjusting speed on the highway. When you maneuver around corners, you may depress your brakes without registering that you did it. More than just stopping, your brakes help you control your Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, or domestic vehicle. It is very important to ensure your brakes are in good condition for safe operation. The signs for brake repair can arise at any time in the form of squeaking or a loss of stopping power. We have aftermarket brakes from top brands like Stoptech and Brembo for import brake repair and modification.

Why Is Brake Repair Important?

At GT Peace Automotive, our mechanics assess brake wear and identify any patterns. We act as detectives deciphering the wear on your vehicle and whether or not certain driving conditions might be causing accelerated brake wear. We can tell you if the brakes are close to failure or still have more life to give. We can also suggest the ideal repairs to promote safety and changes to your driving habits to reduce wear on the brakes. Brakes are essential for vehicle safely and brake repair should always be at the top of any preventative maintenance schedule. Whether through overuse or just age, brakes deteriorate and become less effective at stopping your vehicle. This happens slowly over time, so you may not notice it. That's why there are expert technicians to handle vehicle maintenance. We specialize in import service for Acura, Lexus, Honda, Toyota, Volvo, Volkswagen, and more. The winter weather in Chantilly, Virginia presents the full gamut of hazardous road conditions and ignoring brake health is a risk that no driver can afford. In this instance, performance and safety go hand in hand.

When to Get Brake Repair

Your manufacturer's factory-standard maintenance schedule will give you some indication of when your vehicle will need to be serviced. We suggest following it as long as you feel your brakes are working effectively and safely. Your brakes have two main indicators to let you know something is wrong: sound and smoke. If your brakes are wearing slowly, they may develop a squeaking sound, which can sometimes be accompanied by smoke. It is possible to have smoke without sound. If either or both of these symptoms arise, bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection immediately. If your brakes need repair, you can rest assured all of our services are backed by a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty*. If you're having trouble self-diagnosing your brake condition, visit our shop and we will be happy to discuss your service needs.
