Brake Repair in Fremont

Welcome to the premier Fremont brake repair shop - Fremont Auto Center. We are a full service Fremont auto repair shop. Brake repair and brake pads replacement is one of the most often requested services.

If your vehicle’s braking system indicates that brake system has problems, do not set up an appointment online – call the shop directly – brakes are vital to your safety, we treat these as priority emergency repairs.

If you are looking for superior quality brake repair in Fremont, we are your go-to shop. Our Master Technicians can provide your vehicle with any brake repair or service it needs. Whether your vehicle needs brake pad replacement, brake fluid flush, brake calipers repair or replacement (they are replaced in pairs), has brake master cylinder issues, needs ABS braking system repair, or ABS brake sensor replacement, we can get the issue diagnosed, and your car repaired, usually the same day. Whether your vehicle has drum brakes or disk brakes, our technicians use cutting edge digital equipment, and have the depth of skill to get your car repaired right – the first time.

If your car exhibits these symptoms, its brakes should be checked by a competent mechanic:

If any of these appear, you should take your vehicle to a trusted mechanic as soon as possible:

  • brake pedal is slow to respond or spongy
  • brake dashboard light is red
  • constant squealing or grinding noise during braking
  • brake dashboard light glows amber ( usually this means that anti-lock brake system (ABS) is experiencing a problem)
  • any time you feel that “it does not feel right”

When we do brake repair at Fremont Auto Center, we first perform full diagnostic testing, so we know exactly what’s wrong with the brakes. Among the things we do: visually inspect brake pads and also measure thickness of brake pads (or brake shoes). We check rotors for warping or cracking, we also test brake fluid - brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air – if too much moisture is absorbed, it could corrode other parts of the brake system. We also inspect brake lines, and other components of the braking system.

Once we know exactly what needs to be done, we will send you results of the inspection in digital form, and contact you to explain what needs to be done and why. Digital inspection includes pictures, so you can see exactly what needs to be done.

At this point we will ask you to authorize repairs – once you authorize the work, we will get the right parts and proceed with the repairs. The final step is testing. After repairs are completed, we test the brake system, both statically at the shop, as well as under real world conditions. We take your vehicle for a test drive to make sure that the brake system behaves properly under real driving conditions.

Only when we are satisfied that repairs are correct and that the car is safe to drive, we will call you so you can pick up the vehicle – you get the peace of mind that comes from having your car serviced by professionals, along with 2 year/24,000 mile warranty.

Whenever you bring your vehicle to Fremont Auto Center, whether for brake service, brake repairs, or any other service or repair, you should expect:

  • 36 month / 36,000 mile warranty
  • ASE certified technicians
  • Same day service completion (in most cases)
  • Original Equipment quality parts

Whenever your vehicle tells you – through warning lights or behavior, that its brakes require professional attention, bring it to Fremont Auto Center. We make it easy to set up an appointment – you can do so online, or simply give us a call
