Brakes Evaluation And Repair
FULL REPLACEMENT AND INSTALLATION
BRAKING HAS NEVER BEEN SAFER
With advances in technology, vehicles have never been safer. A huge part of that is braking. Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) reduce stopping distances and prevent the tires from locking up and skidding. They do this by essentially taking control of the braking system from the driver, and pumping the brakes many times per second. This in-turn helps the driver keep the vehicle in control during a sudden stop.
WHEN TO CHANGE BRAKE FLUID
Brake fluid is a regular maintenance item, and the ABS system requires the brake fluid be in good condition. Most people aren’t aware that brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it readily absorbs water. Water contamination causes rust to form, and deterioration of rubber seals inside sensitive brake components, and could cause a soft brake pedal. Once the brake fluid has a water-content of more than 3%, it’s time for a change.

TRUST, VALUE, AND CONFIDENCE
"As a single woman, it had been difficult to find a mechanic who 1) didn’t overcharge me or 2) treat me as a ditz who doesn’t know anything about cars. Zach does neither. He always tells me the way it is, explaining what I don’t understand and giving me all the information I need to make my own choice about my car repairs. I totally trust him. He’s a gem!"
“I have lived in the Valley for ten years and I finally have a trustworthy master level technician to work on my cars. Zach is professional and completely trustworthy. You can’t go wrong when taking your car to get worked on here.”
“Well a last minute call to this business and they delivered on their promise. The prices were a bit “Bay Area”, but in this case it was worth it. They are knowledgeable and competent, I liked dealing with them. They also help people in the community to buy and sell their cars. Thanks Ashland Automotive.”
“I’ve been bringing my Audi here since I moved to Ashland in 2011, and keep coming back. Great service, fair prices and nice people to work with. Zach and his crew are tops!”
