Brake Repair in Phoenix, AZ
Keep your brakes in top condition with our repair services, keeping you safe on the road since 1989
Brake repair is not often thought about in Phoenix, AZ because the driving conditions are fantastic for the vast majority of the year. That doesn’t mean that brake repair should be pushed to the bottom of your maintenance schedule. At Johnston’s Automotive, we want to help you to prolong the life of your brakes, help you to know how your car brakes work, and how to make them last as long as possible.
The real trick to requiring very little brake maintenance is actually in the way that you drive. The reason for this is because every time you step on the brake pedal, you are actually applying force to the spinning portion of your wheel and creating friction on the brake pads or shoes to slow the vehicle down.
Friction makes the brake pads and shoes degrade slowly over time, eventually wearing down the layers until replacement pads or shoes are necessary. The best way to prolong your brakes life is actually to use them as little as possible, allowing your vehicle to decelerate naturally and only brake when it is necessary.
