Brake Repair

Faribault’s Choice for Brake Repairs

brake inspection in faribault, mnThe roads around Faribault can be unpredictable, especially in the summer rain and winter snow. You never know when you might need to hit the brakes, whether you are avoiding other drivers, pedestrians, or even some of our wandering wildlife. The last thing you want is a set of brakes that doesn’t respond immediately – this can make the difference between stopping short, or being involved in a collision. If your vehicle is experiencing any of the following symptoms, it’s time to bring it into Mike’s Garage to get the brakes checked out:

  • Brakes that squeak or squeal
  • Soft, squishy brake pedal when depressed
  • Having to push down further to stop
  • Grind or grating sounds
  • Liquids pooling underneath braking system components
