BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR
At A & B Automotive Inc., we want our Matthews customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 704-821-8045, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services A & B Automotive Inc. offers.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit A & B Automotive Inc. where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at A & B Automotive Inc. about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact A & B Automotive Inc. as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. A & B Automotive Inc. will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

I am new to the area and saw A&B. I read the reviews and decided to try them. Right from the start, Rachel was very pleasant and helpful on the phone. The service preformed on my vehicle was new brakes, she quoted a price and after the new brakes were installed, that was the price I paid. No hidden costs. So I left my truck with them to have them look at it. I highly recommend this business for their own honesty and quality of work.John Nuss

I have used this shop for over 20 years. Honesty and craftsmanship have always been their standard. Fix only what is broken at a reasonable price. I recently had to take my sons car to the dealer. The dealer reminded me why I don't take my cars to the dealer after the free oil changes run out. not a good experience. I prefer to do business with a small business that gives value for money.
