BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Garber's Automotive Inc, we want our New Windsor 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 410-775-2800, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Garber's Automotive Inc offers.

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.

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. Garber's Automotive Inc will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

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 Garber's Automotive Inc as soon as possible.

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 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 Garber's Automotive Inc about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 Garber's Automotive Inc where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Testimonials

  • Garber's customer service is always wonderful; they make sure that you feel like family. I know that when I take my vehicle in for service or repair, I will receive an honest diagnosis of the problem and a fair price.
    -Jessica R.

  • The only place where I take my car to be taken care of. They are always so thorough and let me know what exactly is happening with my car. I cannot recommend Garber's highly enough.
    -Becca B.

  • I worked with Garber to have new tires and brakes installed on my 2013 Mazda CX-5. Had a great experience, the work was completed on schedule without any problems. Price was in line with what was quoted and there were no surprises. Car was returned clean, free of damage and worked/drove like new! Very professional shop, it's obvious that they know what they're doing. I would definitely work with them again in the future and would feel comfortable recommending their services to family/friends.
    -Christopher S.

  • I love Garber's Automotive. The owner Clark is honest and very reasonable in the cost of whatever mechanical work I have needed done. I have had quotes for work to be done on my car at other automotive places and Garber's is always quality work at a reasonable cost. I feel the mechanics are thorough and do not try to fix anything that does not need to be fixed to increase the cost of my bill. I know that I know nothing about cars, but I never feel taken advantage of because of my lack of knowledge. I very highly recommend Garber's, I am sure your experience will be like mine.
    -Dolly B.

  • Always a great experience. I've been taking my cars there for several years and have never been disappointed. Honest, competent service at a fair price. Went in recently for what I was afraid was going to be a major repair and the bill came to under $100 (even though they knew I was prepared to pay more if the car needed it). I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.
