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.
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. Cars Trucks & Vans will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
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 Cars Trucks & Vans as soon as possible.
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 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 Cars Trucks & Vans about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 Cars Trucks & Vans where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Tim and I have been going here for years. Always get great service.
My van stranded us while traveling...I was amazed at their promptness in fixing my vehicle...& knowing we were stranded at the hotel, he even offered to bring it to me. Very reasonable, affordable, great communication, explained exactly what had broken, can't say enough about these folks...they were a life saver in my stressful time!
We were just beginning our Western National Parks Tour and had differential and exhaust problems...Their service was outstanding, price was extremely fair and they got us in and out in just over 2 hours. Thank you to the staff for your kind and professional care. An answer to prayer.
Great service. I had an extensive list of repairs and they were quick with a quote and quick with the repairs. They also do custom exhaust. I'm way happy with my Flowmaster 40! Thanks to all at CT&V! I'd definitely recommend!
Gary and staff are awesome. Not only do they complete thorough diagnostics on your car, they are also not out to rip you off. I took my old car there last year when a national chain gave me an estimate of over $4000 to fix a big leak under my car. C, T & V fixed the issue for $172!...AND they installed a new blinker light in my mom's van free of charge (bulb and labor, even though they had to move the battery). This team is A+ in my book!
