BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Circle Automotive, we want our Clovis 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 559-325-9585, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Circle Automotive 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 Circle Automotive 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 Circle Automotive 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 Circle Automotive 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. Circle Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    Blessed to have come upon this shop. My family and I were on a road trip from New York and our car broke down near Clovis at 8pm on Friday. Our Honda Odyssey couldn't take the hilly up and downs of the Cali hills. AAA towed us to this shop but since it was late we would have to wait till the morning to talk to anyone about the work. The shop says it's only open weekdays and Saturday by appt. So we decided we would come in the morning and possibly someone would be there working. We came back the next morning and John was there. He is a very generous and caring man. He decided to look at our car to see what's wrong and ended up helping us out. The day before, we already were thinking the road trip is down and out, and the super old car is dead. Everything was amazing, from the service to the conversations. Huge thank you to John!!

    Very trustworthy and dedicated owners and mechanics. They are very fair in their pricing. They are also thoughtful about diagnostics and figuring out exactly what your car needs. They never offer things that you don't need. In fact, many times I have had other dealers and mechanics recommend services and then bring it to Circle Automotive for a 2nd opinion and have them tell me that they didn't think it was necessary. They have definitely earned my trust.
