Brake Service & Repair in Archbold, OH

Are You in Tune with Your Vehicle's Brake System?

You wouldn't neglect one of the most important safety features of your car, would you? Without your brakes, your vehicle would be un-drivable. Luckily, you don't actually need to do a whole lot to keep them in good working order. We can set you up with a regular maintenance schedule, and otherwise just let us know if something feels or sounds wrong!

Get to Know Your Brakes

Pay close attention to the feel of your brakes when they're new. You want to have a good idea of the stopping power behind them, both for your everyday driving safety and so you'll notice if something starts to feel different. If your brakes suddenly feel squishy or unresponsive, find a safe place to pull over and give us a call.

If your brakes start to make squealing or grinding noises, get in touch with us. Our job is to keep you safe on the roads, so we want to hear about anything abnormal that goes on with your car. Brake noises might not be reason to panic, but we'd like to ask you about them and maybe have you come in so we can take a look. Always err on the side of caution when it comes to your vehicle's brakes!

Tips for Saving Your Brakes

  • If you speed all the way from Archbold to Swanton because you're late for work, you're giving your brakes extra work to slow down. The higher the speeds, the more heat your brakes generate in slowing down and ultimately stopping your car. Wake up earlier and drive slower!
  • Coast more. If you do get up to higher speeds, just take your foot off the gas early. When you see your Wauseon or Delta exit coming up on the turnpike, just ease off the gas instead of immediately hitting the brakes. This way, you can brake from a lower speed, saving some wear and tear.
  • Look farther ahead and anticipate the traffic. When you're cruising around Defiance or Napoleon, look ahead a few cars and notice the pedestrians crossing a block up, so you don't accelerate more than necessary.
