At Corporate Autoworks, we want our Burlington 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 905-333-9201, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Corporate Autoworks offers.

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 Corporate Autoworks where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

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 Corporate Autoworks about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 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.

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 Corporate Autoworks as soon as possible.

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. Corporate Autoworks will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

The brakes on my car died on me while I was driving home from the Burlington GO stop on December 30, 2019. I had my car, a Chevrolet HHR towed to Corporate Autoworks with the help of a tow truck from CAA. Gavin called me to explain what was wrong with the brakes on my car. Gavin also took pictures of what was wrong with the brakes on my car and he emailed the pictures to me. Corporate Autoworks and Gavin did an amazing job fixing the brakes on my car. A dealership in my hometown tried to scare me into having more work done than was needed. The honesty of the team at Corporate Autoworks made me feel like I was important and not just a dollar sign. We will never go anywhere else. I want to say a big thank you to everyone at Corporate Autoworks from myself (Patrick), my wife Elizabeth & my mother in law Margaret.
