BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Evans Automotive & Tire Center, we want our Saint Augustine 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 904-819-6599, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Evans Automotive & Tire Center 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center 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. Evans Automotive & Tire Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    It's no big deal to me make a write about the service you all provide concerning the quality and price, which like I said is not cheap, but is very reasonable - not to mention the customer service. I would rather spend my money at Evans instead of Honda or Nissan.

    Had service performed same day. Very professional and up front about cost. PS: The front counter has the best writing pens in town. Would recommend.

    I was in a bind and REALLY needed to find a shop to swap out my old 350Z motor for a JDM motor that was like new. The ONLY shops that would do it, were HORRIBLE with communication. From START TO FINISH EVANS WAS AWESOME WITH COMMUNICATION, VERY EFFICIENT AND THE WORK LOOKS LIKE THE CAR JUST PULLED OFF A NISSAN SHOWROOM FLOOR. I'll be turning to them FIRST for all of my car needs!

    I have been a "regular" for years, but for different reasons. Very professional staff, and extremely capable mechanics! Always a pleasure dealing with the Evan's team! One of my favorite places hands down.

    Excellent. Service was fast, done very well, at a fair price. Nissan wanted $4100 and a week to do the work. Evans had it done in 24 hours and I saved $3600. Car runs even better than before. I should mention that diesel fuel was put into the gas tank by mistake causing the need for service. I recommend them highly.
