Stop and Check Your Brakes



Brake Safety Awareness Month in August is the perfect time to have your brakes checked to make sure they are in safe working condition before summer ends and the school year starts, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they're going to need to be replaced. A vehicle's braking system should be checked at least once a year and a thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.



A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle operation and control under a variety of driving conditions. Motorists can put a stop to any potential brake system problems by recognizing the signs and symptoms that their brake system may need maintenance or repair.



If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, they should be inspected. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.



Several factors affect brake wear including driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair, such as letting the brakes get to the "metal-to-metal" point, which can be potentially dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    Henry is the most honest and hardworking mechanic that I've ever met...After the first visit, I knew I had found my mechanic...He goes above and beyond to run tests to ensure that he fixes your car the right way the first time. He even went to bat for me with the parts manufacturer to have a faulty part covered under a warranty that had expired. I probably couldn't tell you how much time and money he has saved me. He was even nice enough to call my dad to explain the repairs as I'm not well-versed in car mechanics. Henry comes with my highest recommendation if you're looking for a skilled, friendly, and honest mechanic in the Orlando area.

    This may not sound like a big deal but they did exactly what they said they would do. Gave me an estimate. It was accurate. Gave me a time they would contact me regarding the work being complete. They had it done right when they said they would. The job they were to do was done exactly as specified. No surprises. Just honest work.

    Henry is the most honest, reliable mechanic I've ever met in my life. He has been the family mechanic for years now and I recommend all of my family, friends, and coworkers to him. I cannot say enough positive things about him or Sunstate Auto Repair!

    I can tell you from personal experience over the last 15 years using Sunstate Auto that Henry is the best and most honest mechanic you will ever find. I drive out of my way to bring my vehicles to Henry because I trust no one else he has found things that others have missed and he continually tries to look for ways to save me money while keeping me safe. Thank you Henry for all you have done!

    I am SO glad a friend recommended SunState Auto to me. Henry really makes you feel at ease and taken care of when it comes to car issues. I have finally found my honest mechanic in Orlando. I recommend you do too.

    Came in on a few occasions I run my own business that involves having to have a vehicle. He always seems really genuine and gives great advice. Best around I always travel to him no matter where I'm at. One of the best and actually cares.
