BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Fix N Go Auto Center, we want our Troy and Oxford 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 the most convenient location, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Fix N Go Auto Center offers.

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.

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. Fix N Go Auto Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

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 caliber 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 Fix N Go Auto Center as soon as possible.

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 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 Fix N Go Auto Center 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 Fix N Go Auto Center where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

    -Scott Ouimet

  • Compared to other repair shops and dealers that I have brought my car to, Fix N Go has been one of the best. Matt especially was very helpful and went above and beyond to help me out when I was in a pinch. I will exclusively be taking my car back here for any repairs, oil changes, etc. Great service, and the prices are reasonable.
    -Sarah Tomaka

  • These guys are always great. They are conveniently near my work, so I just drop a car off in the morning for an oil change or whatever else. We've had different work done by them on a few different cars, and they've always done very good work and seem to be price competitive. Definitely would recommend trying them out to anybody I know, and have done so.
    -Nate E.

  • Very helpful staff.
    -Chris Ophus

  • Good group of mechanics. They appropriately diagnosed my car issues and were in a reasonable price range. They were nice enough to drive me back to my house after they took my car for major service.
    -Richard Alegre

  • I brought in my Volvo v70, and they fixed my problem in two days. It took them that long because of part shipping time. I checked the work, and it was done correctly and professionally.
    -Grant Rowland

  • Truck broke on the freeway. These guys were great and helped me out when I needed it. Thanks guys.
    -David Squires

  • My car kept dying. They checked everything and kept me up to date. I will always be a customer. The service is excellent, and all the guys did a great job.
    -Mesheko Lewis

  • As a college student with an old car and a tight budget, I definitely recommend Fix N Go Troy as the most reliable and trustworthy service in the area. Their prices are very fair given their high quality service, and their close proximity to I-75, and the Sterling/Troy neighborhoods is super convenient.
    -John Esse

  • Great service, nice people. Thanks Todd!
    -Anita Myles

  • Referred to them by Discount Tire to get an alignment after getting new tires. They squeezed me in the same day, and my Trailblazer feels like its new again!
    -John Troy

  • Fix N Go has fast and friendly service. They just informed us that one of our vehicles needed 2 new tires because of dry rot. They just don't do oil changes, they inspect your vehicle to make sure it is running properly.
    -Russ Francis

  • Fix N Go is very reliable, and I am always confident that I am being charged a fair price for their products and services. The staff at Fix N Go is very friendly and always helpful in explaining the repairs that they are performing on my car.
    -Julie Esse

  • We have taken our cars to these guys for a few years. I have always found them helpful, friendly, and you get in and out. I haven't had them trying to sell me something I didn't need, and I trust their judgement. Would definitely recommend them.
    -Vicky Siegel

  • My family drives 4 older vehicles, and we trust Fix N Go to keep us in tip-top shape. They don't try to over sell, the prices are fair, and we think Todd is great!
    -Lori Esse

  • Very nice guys. Quick to respond, friendly, and honest. I will recommend Fix N Go. This was my first time here, and they treated me like a valued client. They fixed a minor problem at no charge. Thank you. Thank you.
    -Al Todek

  • I like getting service here. I can make an appointment for an oil change and come in and wait. They do it quickly and never pressure me into getting additional repairs. If some are needed, they tell me about it and let me decide.
    -Grace Laverdiere

  • I took my car in to get an alignment done. I was expecting the fix to take at least an hour, but was done within around 30 minutes. They were pretty quick to get the job done, and the people were really nice. I'd definitely go again.
