Brake Repair

Brake maintenance and repair is one of the most important aspects for the safe operation of any vehicle, regardless of where you live. However, in Boca Raton, where the weather is typically warm and humid, brake maintenance becomes even more critical.  At Boca Auto Fix we visually inspect the condition of your brakes during your vehicle’s complimentary Digital Vehicle Inspection

Here are some reasons why brake maintenance and repair are important in Boca Raton:

  • Heat: The heat in Boca Raton can cause your brakes to overheat, which can reduce their effectiveness and cause them to fail. Regular brake maintenance can help prevent this by ensuring that your brakes are in good condition and that the brake fluid is at the proper level and has not been contaminated by moisture.
  • Humidity: Humidity can cause moisture to build up in your brake fluid, leading to corrosion and other damage. Regular brake fluid exchanges can help prevent this by replacing your brake fluid when it has become contaminated and/or has an unacceptable moisture content.
  • Heavy Traffic: Boca Raton has heavy traffic, especially during the winter months, which means that your brakes are working harder and experiencing more wear and tear. Regular brake maintenance can help prevent premature wear and damage to your brake components.
  • Safety: Properly functioning brakes are essential for safe driving. Regular brake maintenance can help ensure that your brakes are working correctly, which can prevent accidents and keep you and your passengers safe on the road.

Some common brake system complaints we get from customers are:

  • Unusual noises when applying the brakes, including squealing, grinding or screeching 
  • Unusual feelings when applying the brakes, including steering wheel shakes or vibrations in the vehicle 
  • The steering wheel moving left our right when applying the brakes
  • Fluid leaks in or around the wheels
  • Unusual smells during or after applying the brakes
