Brake Service Details
If your brakes aren’t working right, you run the risk of an accident. This is the problem that Sal’s Complete Auto Service is here to solve. We offer FREE BRAKE INSPECTIONS.
We asked Sal a few questions about brake service
at Sal’s Complete Auto Service.
Here’s what he said.
WHO IS AT RISK?
WHAT TIME FRAME IS IT FOR A PERSON TO GET A BRAKE JOB DONE?
WHAT DO YOU PRIDE YOURSELVES ON, REGARDING BRAKE JOBS?
WHAT KIND OF STANDARDS DO YOU SET, REGARDING TRANSPARENCY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE?
AND IS THIS PART OF A COURTESY INSPECTION, OR IS THIS SOMETHING YOU'RE WAITING FOR PEOPLE TO COME IN THE DOOR WITH? OR IS IT A MAINTENANCE ITEM? TELL ME ABOUT THOSE COURTESY INSPECTIONS.
Well, all three. If a vehicle comes for an oil change, they get a free courtesy inspection with the oil change. The brakes are visually looked at. If there’s an indication they’ll need brakes, then you go to further do measuring of the brakes to make sure the brakes look—what kind of condition, so you can inform the owner of the vehicle the condition of the brakes. If it’s a maintenance inspection, you’re still inspecting the brakes and still informing the customer if there’s any need. You can give them the measurements and all the details of the condition that their brakes are in and what the condition is of where they should be.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT MAINTENANCE AND EVEN THINKING ABOUT WHAT A SCHEDULE WOULD BE, HOW YOU'D CONTACT CUSTOMERS TO REMIND THEM.
WHAT TYPE OF NOISES COULD THEY EXPECT TO HEAR, AND HOW EARLY SHOULD THEY KNOW TO BRING THEIR CAR IN?
DO YOU THINK THEY COULD FEEL A VIBRATION THROUGH THE STEERING WHEEL, AS WELL AS HEAR IT?
DO YOU TURN YOUR OWN ROTORS THERE? AND AT WHAT POINT WOULD YOU HAVE TO BUY NEW ROTORS?
DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR TECHNOLOGY OF BRAKE PAD THAT YOU PREFER AT SAL'S COMPLETE AUTO SERVICE?

“Sal’s by far exceeded my expectations for service. Sal and all his staff are extremely nice and make it feel like family when you are at his business. Sal is a very giving business owner who reminds me of all the good left in the world. I will continue to service my vehicle as well as recommend Sal’s to anyone I know.
Staff was also very knowledgeable about my vehicle and helped me learn a few things too!”
“Sal’s is the best auto repair shop I have ever used. They charged me for half an hour of work when they had spent hours to diagnose and track down parts. They also went out of their way to find the best parts for the price that they could. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and always have a smile on their faces. I will definitely be going to Sal’s for any other automotive needs in the future.”
