BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

 58 Verified Review(s)

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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. 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.

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!

what our customers say

I highly recommend Familia Auto. They took care of wheel bearings on my 2014 Forester. The diagnosis was spot-on and replacement was done quicker than what I could have gotten at dealership. Price was very reasonable as well. I plan on using for other maintenance needs.

I just recently took both of my vehicles for service at Familia automotive . The customer service I received was outstanding. Klent and Steven went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied with their work on my vehicles. They were able to diagnose my AC and now it's working like new. They did a undercarriage cleaning to find any leaks my vehicles had. My mustang was overheating bad, and they replaced my coolant hose within a timely matter and charged me affordable prices for labor and parts. Not only do they have good customer service their work is reliable and dependable. I would 100% recommend this shop to everyone.
