Brake Inspection, Repair, & Service

Southwest Truck & RV Brake service

No matter whether you’re driving a family car, pickup truck, SUV, Motorhome, or a Big Rig / Tractor Trailer, stopping isn’t optional.

Whether you’re driving a small personal vehicle like a KIA, a big rig like a tractor-trailer, box truck, or cargo van, or anything in between like an SUV, pickup truck, or motorhome, Southwest Truck and RV in Prescott Valley, Arizona is the place to go for braking issues.

Your safety, as well as the safety of your passengers and fellow road users, hinges on the optimal functioning of your vehicle’s brake system. When you press down on the brake pedal, a meticulously orchestrated hydraulic process begins. The master cylinder pressurizes brake lines, sending that pressure to each wheel. There, brake pads or shoes contact a disc or drum, generating the necessary friction to bring your vehicle to a controlled stop. However, the inevitable effects of time, friction, and heat can gradually wear down essential brake components like shoes, pads, calipers, rotors, drums, and more.

Signs Your Vehicle May Need Brake Service:

  • High-pitched squeak when pressing the brake pedal
  • Scratching or grinding noise when not braking
  • Vehicle shakes or vibrates while stopping
  • Increased pressure needed on the brakes to stop
  • Brake warning light illuminated
  • Vehicle pulls to one side while braking

Why Brake Repair Service Is Important:

  • Imagine a scenario where your brakes fail to function as intended.
  • Your vehicle wouldn’t be able to slow down or come to a complete stop, jeopardizing your safety and the safety of others on the road.
  • The braking system relies on various components that require brake fluid for lubrication.
  • Regular brake maintenance and repair guarantee that your brakes engage reliably every time you press the brake pedal.

Braking system components are designed to gradually wear due to friction and will eventually need replacement. Neglecting worn brake pads or shoes can lead to stress on other vital parts of the braking system, such as rotors, drums, and calipers. Repairing or replacing damaged parts can be a costly endeavor if left unaddressed. Routine brake maintenance and timely repairs not only ensure the safety and reliability of your vehicle but also save you from potentially hefty brake repair bills down the road.
