Worn brakes take longer to stop your vehicle and incorrectly adjusted or poorly serviced braking systems can cause increased fuel consumption.
At AVC Motors we specialize and carry out all types of brake work. We can fit anything from a set of brake pads up to a complete overhaul of your braking system including ABS.
All our work is fully guaranteed and only top quality parts from reputable manufacturers are used.
We always check the efficiency and quality of our brake repairs with our in house Rolling Road which measures the braking efficiency of each wheel.
Some garages do not have this facility and so may not be able to guarantee that your brakes are up to certain standards, for example the MOT test.

Brake Assessment

  • Noise – Have you noticed any high-pitched noise coming from your car’s brakes whenever you apply them? It is happening because of worn out brake pads.
  • Vibration – If you can feel vibrations whenever you apply the brakes, bring your carimmediately to our workshop. Unusual vibrations indicate a misaligned brakingsystem, a significant safety issue when you are driving.
  • Warning lights – If brakes are malfunctioning, the ABS warning light will be ‘on’ inside the gauge cluster.
  • Leak – Another scary indication is brake fluid leakage inside its housing. Leaking brakes are dangerous; if you apply the brakes really hard, it might cause a sudden rupture, rendering the system completely useless. In busy streets of the UK,this can cause an accident.
