BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Gary's Full Service Auto Repair, we want our Aurora 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 303-364-8344, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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. Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Great customer service. I couldn't ask for a better experience. Car was finished in a timely manner and all details and transactions were explained thoroughly.


-Haley M.

I realized I never actually left my review here. I went through Gary to get my AC unit for my 2009 Prius fixed in Spring 2018 but can't remember the exact date. Calling to make the appointment was a quick and easy process. He was able to see my car a lot sooner than I thought he'd be able to and was able to diagnose what the problem was quickly. I was hoping just for diagnostics to get done, but it turned out he was able to diagnose the problem and fix it all in one go. It was finished the same day I took it in and it made things so easy. I was running a few minutes late to pick up my car and he even stayed late so I could get it picked up and not have to wait until the next day. I would absolutely recommend calling Gary if your car is acting up.

Wonderful mom and pop repair shop! Down to earth and up front with their customers. They won't rip you off, best car repair place I've ever been to.


-Vick M.

I had a pretty serious emergency with my jeep. Gary gave me all the data that would cover the repairs, and more. He was extremely professional and fair, as well as helpful in explaining what had to be done. His prices are very reasonable, his shop friendly, and they got my jeep done in one day. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has any kind of car repair.


-Lorise

Went in thinking i had major problem. They could of really taken me. I walk out with a fixed car for less than 100.00 and an oil change.


-Jamie

I called to see if they could work on my vintage, British car and although they didn't, the rep. suggested me to a place that did. This was such a relief! I'm so grateful for their knowledge on not only what they worked on, but other mechanics in their area.


-Ezzi

I found Gary's full service by chance off of the better business bureau's website for their rating of A+. Recently having moved across the country from Pittsburgh to Denver with my 150,000+ mile 2003 Trailblazer I found my self in need of a mechanic. After I arrived my car was still running but the ABS light was on and the check engine light was intermittantly flashing. I took the car to two other mechanics that told me the ABS computer was out and would cost $1000 dollars just to replace. I hesitated to do the work. Unexpectedly the car developed another problem and overheated. I had to make a decision fast. I had the car towed to Gary's. Not only was the very fair with his prices, fast with his service and honest he CORRECTLY DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AND SAVED ME NEARLY $1000 dollars. I will never go anywhere else and recommend him to everyone I meet. He is everything you look for in a mechanic, no wonder he is still in business after 25 years! Go here I promise you will be happy!

This place is a jewel that I found in Aurora. It is a family owned business and the owner inspects everything before it leaves the shop. I actually waited 3 minutes while the owner went through my vehicle to make sure it was exactly the way it should be. This is old school customer service. What a breath of fresh air.


-Matt

After moving to the area almost 2 years ago, I was looking for a good independent auto shop. gary's was recommended I have found them to be competent and price competitive, and performing or recommending only work that should be done. This has been welcome after some experiences at a dealer.
