BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At CARma Auto Care, we want our Savannah 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 912-335-5766, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services CARma Auto Care 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 CARma Auto Care 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 CARma Auto Care about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
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.

Caliper Replacement
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 CARma Auto Care as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
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. CARma Auto Care will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

What Our Customers Are Saying

There are no MINI COOPER dealers in the Savannah area. Although I had taken my Mini in for service to a local BMW dealer, they did not diagnose that my starter was faulty (interrogating the key is not enough). CARma did a full diagnostic and also identified that, in a dictionary to my starter, I also needed new battery! I highly recommend this auto repair shop. I left feeling completely confident any issues with my MINI are resolved! Staff was friendly and kept me informed. Great job, team!

Carma is a great Auto Car repair center. We send several cars over for maintenance and they not only fix the problem, but perform a multi point inspection on the health of the vehicle to let us know if something else is wrong. We entrust them with our student training vehicles and they have never let us down. They provide the best service. Thank you Carma team for taking great care of us!

Had an unexplained issue with Jeep engine shutting down after putting transmission in Drive. It seemed like an engine / transmission-related problem. The folks at Carma analyzed the situation and identified a vacuum hose that had dried-out and was causing the problem. Quick fix at reasonable cost. They are now my go-to service shop.
