BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR
BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR
A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Morrison's Auto-Rite Inc customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 617-522-4444 or visit us in Jamaica Plain and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.
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 Morrison's Auto-Rite Inc 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 Morrison's Auto-Rite Inc about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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.
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 Morrison's Auto-Rite Inc as soon as possible.
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. Morrison's Auto-Rite Inc will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
Morrison's is honestly the best shop I've ever worked with. They're professional, courteous, do great work, and go out of their way to inform the customer of every repair they're making and are happy to explain the reason why. I always leave the shop confident in my vehicle and their team as well as feeling more informed about my vehicle in general. This is my third year of going exclusively to Morrison's for all my vehicles and I have never had any problem with their service. Save yourself the time and worries of shopping around - just go to Morrison's. They'll take care of you and your vehicle with excellent service.

These guys couldn?t be nicer! I went in for a check maintenance light, and they found a lot of additional work that was needed, but walked me through it and made it clear they weren?t just trying to rack up the prices! They even offered to speak with my dad (the cars previous owner) to make sure we all felt good about the suggested improvements. I recommend them to everyone I know in JP that has a car!

Impressed at how friendly everyone was including all the phone calls and the poor mechanic who had to take a ride with me during rush hour to hear the sound I came in to fix. Thank you! Prices seemed average for the repairs I received. I will not hesitate to come back.
