BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At IRC/Import Repair Center, we want our Sacramento 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 916-487-7801, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services IRC/Import Repair Center 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 IRC/Import Repair Center 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 IRC/Import Repair Center 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 IRC/Import Repair Center 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. IRC/Import Repair Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

I was referred to IRC when I had an issue with my exhaust. From the moment I walked in I felt like I was in very good hands. Everyone was welcoming and Jim was very friendly and helpful. He showed me the problem and not only fixed it but improved the design. The cost was extremely reasonable by far and the repair did not take long at all. I will definitely recommend this shop to all I know!

My dear Laurie and Jim,
I was driving around, doing my errands and noticing that just as Jim had said, there was considerably less noise when I was stopped because you'd already done some repair work, when I realized you hadn't charged me anything for that work! I think I'm getting so used to you taking such wonderful care of me that it somehow didn't register, and I don't know if I even said thank you. THANK YOU
Please consider adding the cost of the work you did today to the charges when I come in next week. I so appreciate your many kindnesses, but I also do not want you generous people to short yourselves. Of course I keep an eye on expenses, and I certainly appreciate it when you give me a bargain, but I also have a regular paycheck coming in now, and I very much want our transactions to be win-wins. Totally aside from the pleasure of your friendship, it's wonderful to be an IRC customer and know that I will be charged a fair price (when you remember to charge me at all), by a business that stands behind their work. I eventually found mechanics with similar ethics in Connecticut, but before I did, I dealt with two car repair businesses that were somewhat less than trustworthy. I'm ignorant about cars, so it took me a while to discover they were charging me high prices for poor work. I never take IRC for granted. Mom and my sisters and I have always been grateful for Jim Sr. and his wonderful staff, and now you two take such good care of me! I feel very blessed to be an IRC customer. Then, on top of all that, there is the delightful bonus that we've become friends. I'm so glad you're both in my life; I feel happy every time I come in to see you.
With great appreciation,
