BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Absolute Auto Repair Center, we want our Fitchburg 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 978-342-3100, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Absolute Auto Repair Center 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 Absolute Auto Repair Center 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 Absolute Auto Repair Center 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 Absolute Auto Repair Center 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. Absolute Auto Repair Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    I had a wonderful experience at Absolute Auto! I had visited other shops in the area and had no resolutions. Absolute Auto gave quick feedback about my thermostat housing unit and the repairs needed. I was able to pick my car up the same day! Employees were very helpful and friendly. Reasonable pricing. I highly recommend!

    Scott was generous with time and thoroughly answered my questions before and after repairs were done. I felt that his guidance was honest and objective, allowing me to make a good repair decision. Also, he was able to fit my car in very quickly even when the shop was very busy. I really like that Absolute prepares a very detailed work summary for the customer. Summary includes pictures of actual parts replaced. Never saw this done in shops I visited in other parts of Massachusetts. Work is high quality and pricing seems competitive. I definitely will be back for future work!
