Professional Brake Service From ASE-Certified Mechanics

Merrill Automotive has provided brake service and brake repair in Lakewood and the Denver-metro area since 1928. Brakes are a vital component of any car, truck, or SUV. They should be inspected regularly by a certified brake specialist or mechanic.

Not all brakes are created equal. There are often dozens of different parts available for each make and model. Some of these parts are inferior. We only use high-quality brake components with an extended warranty we can stand behind.

Identify When a Brake Service Is Needed

How will I know if there is a problem with my brakes? A regular inspection at Merrill Automotive is the best way to avoid unexpected problems. When driven properly, most brake systems have a good service life. Driving aggressively in stop-and-go traffic or down steep grades will naturally wear the brakes out faster.

While driving, it is common to feel a rotor that is warped. The steering wheel will generate a slight back and forth vibration during braking. This vibration can be annoying. Bring your vehicle in for inspection if you feel anything unusual in the braking system. Most brake pads are designed to produce an audible squeak when they are getting low.

It’s best to have this addressed quickly. Replacing the pads can be more economical than replacing other parts possibly damaged due to worn pads. Some newer models have sensors in the brake system that will alert the driver of necessary brake repair or maintenance. Typically it is a notification on the dash, and it is important to have the vehicle serviced if any warning lights are on.
