Brake Calipers Stop You in Your Tracks
There are few systems on your Cadillac, Chevrolet or Chrysler as important as the brakes. When you step on the brake pedal, hydraulic pressure is transferred to the brake calipers, which squeeze the brake pads against the brake rotors. A properly functioning brake system allows you to maintain control of your vehicle and stay safe.
At Hometown Garage in Portland, we don’t have to replace brake calipers too often, as they don’t typically wear out. Still, rust is one common issue we encounter with brake calipers, which causes parts to get stuck. If you’re experiencing pulling while braking, longer braking distance or unusual smells, you might need a brake caliper inspection. The professionals at Hometown Garage have the training and experience to diagnose the matter and determine the best course of action.
