BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, Peoples Choice Auto Repair can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 865-272-3379 or visit us in Oak Ridge and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!



Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Peoples Choice Auto Repair about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Peoples Choice Auto Repair as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Peoples Choice Auto Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly recommend People's Choice for your car repairs. Very knowledgeable staff. Everything was explained in detail. My car was a nightmare for them. One problem led to another. I was kept up to date with everything that was going on with the repairs. They did a lot of work from timing assembly replacement to engine replacement, starter replacement and now sway bar link. My car is great. I'm enjoying driving it again. Can't say enough about People's Choice great staff and the crucial part each one plays in their team. Thanks so much! I will be doing business with them again. They have also worked on both of my daughter's cars with great results. I will be recommending them to anyone that has car issues.

Peoples Choice saved the day. After waiting half the day for another shop to fix the brakes on my Mother-in-law's car, we found out they hadn't even touched it yet, even though we had an appointment. We called People Choice, explained the situation, and and they assured us they had the parts in stock and could fit us in immediately. They had her back on the road in no time.

On our way to Georgia, our SUV died on the interstate. Our SUV was towed to the closest shop, People's Choice. Being from out of state, I was prepared for the worst. I was pleasantly surprised with the honesty of the shop as well as their quality work. They even put my trailer with 3 motorcycles inside at night. They definitely made a bad situation better.
