Brake Repair and Replacement

Your brakes are one of the most important components on your vehicle. Cost alone should not drive your decision making when it is time to repair or replace your brakes. The safety and overall performance of your vehicle depends on having the correct brakes installed correctly.


Making the Right Choice

You have more options when replacing your brake pads than you might think. Some pads come with a lifetime warranty, however they are often very loud and “squeak” when you apply them. When looking for the best option, search for a brand with a high metallic content. They often cost a little more, but will give you superior stopping power with less noise.

“Turning” Rotors

Some drivers opt to have their rotors “turned” instead of replaced in order to save some money. In order to be turned a rotor needs to still meet very specific safety specifications to be road legal. The technician has to have a strong eye for detail and know exactly what they are doing to complete the repair. In the end, the driver is not saving a whole lot of money. Dorn’s typically recommends that drivers replace their rotors when needed. This ensures that the rotor is safe and will perform exactly as the factory intended it to.
