Sumter SC Automotive Brakes
Atlas Transmission provides a wide range of repair services for both import and domestic automotive brake systems at our auto repair shop in Sumter. Every auto mechanic at our Sumter shop knows it is important that you understand how the brake system in your car or truck plays a vital role in keeping your passengers and you safe. The components in the automotive brake system are not designed to last for the life of your vehicle and wear down over time as you drive in and around the streets of Sumter. The pads (aka shoes) are the most common brake replacement service we do at our Sumter shop. This is because every time you depress your pedal the brake pad material wears down against the brake rotor. If the brake pads are allowed to wear down for too long the underlying metal surface of the pads will contact your brakes' metal rotors (aka drums). This situation will not only result in an unsafe situation but will require additional service and increase your brake repair cost.
Our auto mechanics stress to our customers that knowing when to have the brake system in your car or truck serviced at our Sumter automotive repair shop is important to keeping your brake repair cost to a minimum. Simply being aware of the warning signs of potential brake failure can save you money on costly brake repair expenses for your car or truck. Your very own senses of hearing, touch, and sight can be of a substantial assistance to you. Some common indications of brake problems may include the appearance of the brake warning light in your dashboard, brake fluid that is either low or dirty, grinding noises, a "spongy" feeling when depressing your brake pad.
