Brake Service and More in Whitby

The brake system plays an integral role in the operation of your vehicle; no matter how efficiently your car’s engine, transmission and other components are performing, you’re going to have problems if you can’t stop safely once you arrive at your destination. Luckily, brakes are not shy about letting you know when they need attention. If you notice a squeaking or grinding sound when you come to a stop, or your vehicle pulls to one side or vibrates when braking, it may be time to replace the brake pads and/or rotors. 

M.R. Automotive has been your trusted source for professional brake service in Whitby, Ajax, Oshawa and surrounding areas of Durham Region for over 20 years. We use only high quality parts from trusted manufacturers when restoring your vehicle’s brake system to its original specifications. 

What you should flag immediately for a repair 

  • If your brake pedal feels irresponsive and spongy 
  • If you hear a grinding or crunching sound every time you hit the brake
  • You see the brake warning indicator blinking 
  • If you feel vibrations during braking

Extremely tough and durable metals are used while manufacturing pads and shoes for brakes. This is to ensure that your brakes can tolerate and last under the tremendous force and heat that occurs when you stop a car. After a while, which may depend on the quality of brake parts, these become thin with wear and require immediate replacement. Always remember that a higher quality may be expensive but will provide you with a more long-term service than low-graded brakes. The best way to make sure you got the right braking system is to go with the manufacturer recommendation.
