BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Maxi Auto Service customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 706-861-3918 or visit us in Fort Oglethorpe and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.

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 Maxi Auto Service 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 Maxi Auto Service 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 Maxi Auto Service 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. Maxi Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    I've used Maxi for quite a long time and have always been happy with their service and prices. Allen runs an efficient operation, and usually gets you in and out quicker than expected, with the problem fully resolved. I've recommended this shop to friends and will do so in the future.

    After a sudden incident with my sons tire. He needed air. This place was open and let him have air. Very nice and friendly people. Helped my son get his tire off so he could go get it fixed. Then helped him put it back on and charged him nothing.

    When my car broke down, my roadside assistance insurance paid for a tow, and I had my car taken to Maxi. I didn't have the money to pay for the repairs, and Maxi kept my parked there at no charge for several weeks until I was able to afford having it towed to my home. They are super nice and very professional. It's where I will always go in the future for car repairs and maintenance.
