Brake Pads
Transmission Tacoma
Although our shop specializes in transmissions, we offer full-service automotive repair on virtually all vehicle systems, including brakes. Brakes are one of the most important necessities to keep your vehicle safe on the road. That's why we're glad our customers trust us with brake pads and rotors just as much as they trust us with their car's engine.
We don't want you to drive if your brake pads are worn and in need of extensive repair, which is typically what the unpleasant noises mean, especially if the noises don't go away when you release the brake pedal. The noise is your brakes' way of signaling you that their time is up. Don't you wish every part of your vehicle could give you such a warning? Do not ignore their plea for help!

If you hear a grinding sound, that's most likely the caliper and rotor going metal-on-metal, which means you're probably looking at a set or two of new brake pads and rotors. If you've ignored the squealing for a while, the grinding noise signifies the last level of brake functionality; it may have only 10% life left. This is the point where we will definitely urge you to have your brakes done for safety reasons.

Other signs to have your brakes looked at are:
If your car is jerking or pulling to the side when braking
Changes in the way your brake pedal feels
Brake fluid leaking around the wheels or engine compartment
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light comes on

All of those symptoms point to scenarios that we'll want to take a look at promptly.

If you do need brake service we will most likely recommend a pair (left and right) of the parts instead of a single part and that's because they wear evenly and thus typically come in sets. It's best practice to replace brakes in pairs; otherwise it can result in a pull or braking imbalance. We give honest advice and will never try to sell you something you don't need. If we recommend brake maintenance it's because we have your safety in mind as #1. We will show you how the measurements compare to industry benchmarks. If they can wait a bit, we will tell you.

The good news is that if you stay on top of maintaining your vehicle's brake pads you can prevent the metal-on-metal scenario that requires more extensive repairs. Have your car's brakes inspected at least once a year so you'll always know your ride is safe. Brakes are known to last 20,000 to 40,000 miles depending on driving conditions.

Other than replacing the brake pads we can also replace brake shoes, rotors, drums, calipers, wheel cylinders, brake hoses and brake fluid. Even under normal driving conditions, all of these components can wear down from heat and friction. Our ASE certified mechanics are specially trained to keep your entire brake system working effectively. Whether you need preventative maintenance or a complete brake set, A-1 Transmission has you covered.
