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.

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. Circle Automotive 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 Circle Automotive 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 Circle Automotive 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 Circle Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Testimonials

  • 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.

  • Great, fast and honest work. It's so hard to find a good mechanic don't hesitate to come here!!!
    -Ayman Y.

  • Honest shop, fair price, very busy. The only negative I can think of is communication. I do understand and their positives far out weigh the negative given that they are a smaller shop, but I just wish they would call or text when the car is finished. This is my go to shop. All four of my cars come here.

    -Sheila D.

  • ...My truck was towed to Circle Automotive and it turned out to be an answer to prayer... My truck was potentially in really bad shape and it was the fault of the oil changers. John was kind, honest, and sooooo helpful in explaining the whole situation to me. He handled everything so professionally. In the end, my truck was fixed and now John and the lube shop will be referring customers to each other's businesses. I am so incredibly grateful for John's services. This is a quality, honest automotive services shop where you are treated with kindness and professionalism. I will be returning for future auto repairs and maintenance.
