The purpose of your brakes is to ensure that every time you drive, you know that your vehicle and its brakes are safe in case of sudden stops. This is why we work so hard to not only repair and maintain brakes. But also to ensure that our clients are made aware of how crucial it is to have the brakes on their vehicle checked regularly.
A check at home with the help of Google may seem like the cost-efficient idea. But only a qualified mechanic can ascertain whether your brakes are fit for purpose and will bring you to a complete stop in the event of an emergency.If you suspect that your vehicle might be coming to a sudden stop slower than normal, or travelling even after you hit the brake pedal, it’s time to trust the automotive experts at AVR to keep you and your passengers safe.
