Functional brakes are essential to giving your vehicle the ability to stop and keeping you and everyone else on the road safe. Like the other systems in your car, your brakes need to be carefully maintained. In a disc brake system, the brake caliper presses the brake pads against the rotor to slow your vehicle. Over time, these brake pads will wear away, eventually causing the disc brakes to begin to squeal or grind. If you wait too long the brake pad will wear out leaving the steel backing to grind against the rotor and damage it. Due to small tollerances from the OEM it is common to replace the brake rotors with brake pads on most vehicles today when machining the rotors is not possible. These are just some of the reasons why it’s important to have your vehicle's brake system regularly inspected.
Signs that your brakes are wearing out include a squealing or grinding noise, vibration while braking, and taking longer to stop your vehicle. If you notice any of these symptoms, schedule a brake check at Rozema’s Car Care as soon as possible. Our technicians will perform a full inspection using the best tools available.
As your engine burns fuel, toxic gases have produced that need to be safely funneled out of the vehicle. This is accomplished by the exhaust system. The expert team at Rozema’s can assess all components of your car’s exhaust system, including the exhaust manifolds, Flex pipe if equipped, catalytic converter, muffler, and exhaust pipe. If any of these components fail, leak, or rust out, it could mean excess noise, higher emissions, and even potentially toxic fumes in your vehicle’s cabin. We are fully equipped to perform exhaust systems inspections and repairs for the sake of both your vehicle's performance and your health.
Making a vehicle safe to drive starts from the ground up. Tires connect your vehicle with the pavement beneath you. Good tires are essential to your car’s ability to grip the road, stop swiftly and safely, and keep traction in slippery conditions.
