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.

What People Say About Us

    I went by there this morning with a small issue, the person in the front office was really kind and helpful and listened to my concerns. I’m visiting St. Augustine and driving back tomorrow so I wanted to do so with a little bit of peace of mind and they helped me out.

    Bought tires from them and very satisfied. Came back for a check months later and these guys were very helpful and sooo polite!! Was told from other tire stores I needed new rims and/or valve stems. These guys said told me I only needed adjustments with my psi. They charged me NOTHING. Fixed problem and told me to come back anytime. Wow. I'm just blown away by their honesty. Thank you Evans!!!!

    Best group of mechanics, the shop is always clean, people at the front desk are always on point (like giving you a heads up on your next appointment to having a game plan). I've been a customer at Evans since 2016 and haven't went anywhere else ever since. I know the owner (Mark), he's an automotive guru.

    2008 Ford F150 2wd Took my truck to Evans. Bad shake and vibration. Jay took it and now it rides like new again. Jay recommended tires. I have had the same tire brand on this truck for 5 years. Till now no one ever told me they were not a good brand. Jay recommend another tire and WOW what a difference. NEVER AGAIN WILL I TAKE MY TRUCK TO ANYONE ELSE. Price was very fair. Take yours, their worth every penny and service was perfect. Shout out to Jay your the best.

    I have used Evans Automotive for several years. They have always done exactly what they said needed doing and never changed the price. I find their prices run cheaper than any others. The staff is courteous, efficient and go out of their way to make sure you?re comfortable while there. The guys in the back are just awesome and the ones up front are also. So tell me why would I go anywhere else. Simple. I wouldn?t . They are the best.

    Rob and Justin at the front counter put me at ease from the first second I stepped into Evan's Automotive. They got the technicians on the vehicle immediately and got me on my way in a timely manner. I strongly recommend this mechanic shop 100% and they have definitely made me a customer for life!

    Best customer service in town. Rob and Justin always go out of their way to accommodate. Thank you for always making sure our vehicles are road ready and in great working condition.

    We have used Evan's a few times before and they always have done a great job. This week I found myself with a headlight out and a busy schedule. I stopped in to find out if there was anyone available to change the light. He went out to double check which light, found out they didn't have one in stock, but said he would have one there in 10 minutes. It came in five and I was back on the road. Thank you for such a little thing that can be a big deal!

    I had a 70,000 mile service done on my car this week at Evans Automotive and I was very pleased with the friendliness of the staff. Their work was excellent and their prices very good. I am so pleased that I am returning for new tires tomorrow.

    I always get such great service at Evans from Rob and Justin at the front counter to the mechanics. If I've had a concern Mark has always been happy to address it and a happy resolution has been reached. I wouldn't take my trailblazer anywhere else for service or repairs.

    Great place, extremely excellent service at the front desk. They attempted to patch a tire for me, but couldn't because the steel belt had separated. No charge for their efforts. Will definitely return to Evans next time I need service. Thanks for your help.

    We took the van in to get the tire plugged after running over a screw and decided to get the AC looked at too. They have awesome customer service, very thorough in both diagnosing and explaining the issues. There's a nice clean waiting area with comfortable seats and a TV, and you can make coffee or get a water out of the fridge for free. Very nice set up! They also have a clean restroom for customers.
