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. Beechwood Automotive, LLC 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 caliber 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 Beechwood Automotive, LLC 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 Beechwood Automotive, LLC 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 Beechwood Automotive, LLC where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

  • Fast, courteous, & reliable service. I have been going to Beechwood Automotive for several years and am extremely satisfied. I feel comfortable going to Beechwood and do not worry about being taken advantage of like I have at some other places.
    -Anonymous

  • Excellent! Jim is very knowledgeable and thorough. He gathered as much information from me as he could about what the vehicle was doing, and quickly had an idea of what might be the problem. While he spent a lot of time with my vehicle (it was a bit of a stumper), he did not charge me an arm and a leg to do so. I appreciated his honesty and did not feel like I was being taken advantage of at all. I would definitely recommend Beechwood Automotive to my friends and family.
