The Santa Clarita's Brake Repair & Service Experts

For Reliable Brakes You Can Count On

You depend on your vehicle to get you and your family where you need to go when you need to be there. Just as importantly, you need your car or truck to stop at your command as well. When your brakes aren’t performing as they should, everyone in the vicinity of your vehicle is in danger, making regular brake inspections, service, and repairs a necessity for anyone who drives an automobile. At Valencia Auto Performance & Simply Smog, our brake system experts are here to ensure your brakes are performing optimally, and if they’re not, we’ll handle brake repairs accurately and efficiently.

Signs Your Brakes Need Service

While many modern vehicles have brake wear sensors, hearing an unusual noise is still the most common way drivers become aware their brakes are worn or damaged. In fact, brake wear sensors, themselves, send out a noise to indicate it’s time for brake service—when brakes reach the end of their lifecycle, you’ll hear a screeching sound as you brake or as you release your brakes, depending on the make and model of your vehicle. Other than the screech of brake wear sensors, symptoms of bad brakes include:

  • Squeaks and squeals when you brake
  • Brake pedal pulsations
  • Increased stopping time required after you hit the brakes
  • Your brake pedal presses down too easily (aka “spongy” brakes)
  • Your brake pedal stops closer to the floor than it used to
  • Pulling to one side when braking
  • Grinding noises that sound like metal rubbing on metal (It is metal on metal, and your brake pads are completely worn away!)
