At Familia Automotive, we want our Stockton 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 209-933-1829, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Familia Automotive offers.
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 Familia Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
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 Familia Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 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.
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 Familia Automotive as soon as possible.
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. Familia Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Excellent service from Familia automotive. I needed a break fluid exchange. The price was very reasonable and my appointment was made instantly. Very friendly service and also very informative. I was given a lot of good advice and detailed information I needed to know about my car. The process was fast and with all the routine maintenance checks. My engine compartment was cleaned and all fluids topped up. I am very happy with the level of work and customer service. I highly recommend visiting this shop and I am for sure going back and telling all my family and friends.Ajay Parmanand
I used them for my moms vehicle-had her brakes replaced a few months ago. I will definitely be using them for my vehicles as well. They are very reliable, honest, trustworthy and friendly. You just get a good vibe and a lot of automotive places I am skeptical about. They definitely make you feel comfortable. Their prices are definitely within reason. Couldn't ask for a better place to take my cars to. They won't let you down!Tisha R.

what our customers say
Familia Automotive is an outstanding place to have your car repaired. The owner makes you feel part of his family the second you walk in. I have never felt this with any of the other shops I have taken my car to. I felt comfortable asking questions and voicing my concerns. Familia Automotive fixed my car right the first time, told me to come back if there were any issues, and were very competitively priced and with better service. Highest praises for fixing my 1998 Saab Turbo 900 SE.
This is by far the best auto repair shop I've ever been to. Clint was amazing, friendly and efficient, I was referred by a friend and will happily refer my friends. The techs or Clint (the one I dealt with) was honest and did not try to up-sell me. He made me feel welcomed and explained everything he did. Great people!! and Clint!!
A family member of mine recommended familia automotive and i have not gone anywhere else since then. The owner Klent has great communication and explains exactly what needs work on your vehicle and why. He gives recommendations on where you can go if he does not have parts or services needed and best of all has great pricing. Best in Stockton!!
