BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Jersey Auto Repair, we want our North Brunswick customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 732-249-8863, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Jersey Auto Repair offers.

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.

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. Jersey Auto Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

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 Jersey Auto Repair as soon as possible.

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 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 Jersey Auto Repair about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 Jersey Auto Repair where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

My uncle found this garage for me to fix my old Hyundai Accent,the guy Brock the was really great with helping me and my Uncle fix our car at a decent quote. They really fixed up my car, it has been running smooth since last month. The timing belt work they have done in my car was really good. I couldn?t have asked for a better garage or service. If you have a car that needs to be fixed, Brock at Jersey Auto Repair is your guy.


-Rukhsar S.

...Brock and his crew looked into the issues my car was having and quickly diagnosed the problem. Brock took the time to explain the issue to me, and wasted no time getting the parts to get it back on the road. These guys saved me a lot of money and headaches, I'll definitely be bringing all my vehicles to them from now on.

-Stephen M.

Always professional and very honest.


-Ron S.

Visited the shop today morning, after another mechanic did not show up. Guys fixed my car right away, on the spot, and did not charge anything for that! (While another mechanic said upfront he would charge 60 USD). They have also checked the general state of the car and provided some useful tips. Very reliable and very customer friendly!


-Magda G.L.

Friendly, honest service.


-Pete L.

-Karen S.

-Aparna C.

The local shop. Awesome service, honest assessments.....because really, that is what everyone wants when you have to take your car to a mechanic.


-Lillian S.

Honest and friendly shop. I was having some trouble with my BMW which was acting up for some time. I finally decided to take it to a garage and chose Jersey Auto Repair. I'm glad I did, they diagnosed the problem right away and called me to give me an estimate on the repair costs before beginning the work. They even fixed my rear brakes which I knew were sticking but didn't mention to them when I brought it in. Emergency brake actually works now. I've been back a couple times for regular maintenance stuff and couldn't be more glad. The owner goes out of his way to make sure the customer is happy. They do great work at a really fair price. I would definitely recommend.


-Stan N.

Great to see you guys on Facebook! I wouldn't take my car anywhere else!


-Diane F.

Thank you Eric for providing us with Excellent Service! Always a pleasure to do business with you!


-SMS Contracting LLC

I've got to thank Eric and the rest of the crew at Jersey AUTO Repair. Picked my car up last night and it drives like it's new again. As always, great work!
