Brakes - Disc, Drum and Anti Lock Systems

When driving in Houston traffic and its surrounding areas, you will realize that your braking system and Anti-Lock Braking System are some of the most vital systems you will have in your vehicle. The difference in functioning brakes and faulty brakes can mean the difference between an accident and saving lives.

At Payne’s Automotive, we know that it’s important to not only check your brakes, but to make sure they are functioning at optimum efficiency. This means inspecting the pads, checking the brake fluid, inspecting the rotors, checking the backing plate pads on the drum brake assembly, and examining the caliper slide pen. We believe every detail is important when it comes to our customer’s safety.

When should you have your brakes checked?

  • Inspections should be done yearly or every 12,000 miles
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side when braking
  • Upon braking your vehicle begins to shake or vibrate
  • Your vehicle takes too long to come to a complete stop
  • Squealing or grinding noises when stopping
  • Your brake light is on
  • Unusual odor upon braking

If you experience any of these things or have a brake concern, our certified and experienced technicians are waiting to help get you back on the road safely. As a bonus, we even offer local shuttle service so we can get you to work or wherever you need to go as we work on your vehicle. We guarantee to provide you quality service and parts so your car or truck will go the distance!
