Brake Service and Repair Reno-Sparks

Stay Safe by Checking Your Brakes

One of the most important parts of your car to get serviced is your brakes. Sadly, brake service is often overlooked which can lead to bigger problems down the road. That is why our auto shop wants to make it as easy as possible for you to come by one of our two locations in the Reno-Sparks area and have your brakes inspected and serviced. With certified mechanics and years of experience, you’re in great hands here at Levrett’s auto shop.

What Our Mechanics Look At When Inspecting Car Brakes

During a brake inspection, we look over every part of your brake system to make ensure it’s running properly. That way you’re taking preventative measures and keeping the effectiveness of your car brakes optimal. Beyond brake maintenance, we also offer brake repair services.

Sometimes driving conditions may have caused wear and tear on your brakes, a bump in the road, anything really, can cause your brakes to lose their effectiveness. It can be something minor like a simple part being replaced or a major rehaul of your entire brake system.

We pride ourselves on being honest about what type of work your vehicle needs and having a quick turnaround at fair prices.

Make an appointment with us today and we will make sure you don’t have to worry about your brakes.

How often should my brakes be checked? 2017-09-13T12:29:11+00:00

While many often wait until their brakes are difficult to use or they give off a strange sound, it is often best to take preventative measures now to save you on a high cost later. One way to do that is through having a complete brake system inspection. Thankfully, you don’t have to get them checked too often to make sure they are performing properly. We recommend once a year to maintain properly functioning brakes.

My brakes are squeaking when I use them. What is wrong? 2017-09-13T12:33:47+00:00

There are many parts to a car’s brake system, but more often than not hearing a weird sound likely indicates that your brake pads have worn out. This can be caused by a number of conditions such as consistent stop and go traffic, weather related wear and tear, like humidity, and even dust can tamper with your brake system. To identify the root of the problem we always recommend starting with a brake inspection.

Thank you for the great unexpected service to my daughter’s vehicle so she could pass her driver’s test. Because of caring people like yourselves and the great customer service (which a lot of businesses don’t have anymore) it is no wonder why you have the reputation that you do, for being the very best in the business. Again, thank you all for what you did. You are awesome.

I want to express my “Thank You” for your honest Quality diagnosis and work performed on the transmission of my vehicle. Your entire staff was very helpful. It is easy to see why you have such a successful business. I was happy to pay you for the work you and your staff performed. Not only did you bend over backward to get me on the road within 24 hours, I also felt that your prices were reasonable. At no time was I ever concerned.

M. LaMarch

Some time ago we read in the paper how you helped the people who were on their way home to Oregon, but their car stalled in California. Because you had worked on their car when they were in Reno, they called you about the trouble, and you made the long trip to assist them. We want you to know how much we admire your actions and we certainly have you down as the person we want to work on our car should the need arise.
