are one of the most important safety features on any vehicle. Whenever you press your brake pedal, pressure and fluid runs through your brake lines from the master cylinder to apply your brake pads to your rotors or drums. As you can imagine, there's a lot of strain on the brake pads whenever they're applied. Since they're made out of a friction material, they aren't meant to last forever, which is why Quality Foreign Auto
in Bothell, WA
is here for you when you need any type of brake repair.
The most common type of brake work that we do is a brake pad replacement, and you can trust us to give you an honest opinion about what the problem is. Some shops will try to sell you new rotors, drums and calipers, but we'll thoroughly explain our diagnostics so that you know that we're only replacing the necessary parts. When brake pads or shoes are replaced, it's important to smooth the drums or rotors so that you don't get a pulsation when you apply your brakes. Our ASE certified technicians know what the specifications of your drums and rotors are, so we'll be able to smooth them out without actually having to replace the parts, saving you a significant amount of money.
We're also here to diagnose any other brake problems you may be having. If you have a brake light that shows up on your dashboard, we have the equipment to do a complete diagnostic to see if there's some type of electrical issue triggering the light. We'll also check your entire brake system to see if you have dirty fluid, fluid leaks or a malfunctioning master cylinder.
