Your vehicle’s braking system is the most crucial feature to ensuring your safety. It’s important to keep your brakes well-maintained, as worn out or out-of-adjustment brake parts will compromise your safety, and the safety of your passengers and fellow drivers, when on the road. Whether or not you have anti-lock brakes, you need to be able to trust that your brakes can handle the task of driving in any condition, from curvy hillsides to wet, icy roads in North Vancouver. Your expert team of mechanics at Beetle Spa will perform brake inspection services during your regular auto check up and inform you of the status of your brakes.

If you notice any of the following issues with your braking system, be sure to come by or contact Beetle Spa right away:

  • You sense that the car is taking longer to come to a stop 
  • Your car feels like it’s pulling to the left or right when you brake
  • You feel vibration in the steering wheel when you apply the brakes
  • You hear a high-pitched squeal (indicating worn brake calipers, drums or rotors)
  • You hear a grinding sound when you apply the brakes (indicating severe damage to brake pads or brake shoes)
  • You have to push your brake pedal to the floor when you brake (indicating a leak in the brake system or problems with the brake cylinder)

Beetle Spa technicians are trained to inspect, diagnose and repair all types of braking systems. Whether it is a simple brake adjustment or diagnosing and repairing anti-lock braking systems, our professional technicians will pinpoint the problem, and fix it right. Your safety is our number 1 priority.
