A fully functioning brake system is crucial to your safety

Full-Service Brake Replacement, Repair and Maintenance

When it comes to important parts of any vehicle, brakes are at the top of the list. It is important to have your brakes inspected, repaired, or replaced by a professional. Sonny’s has been taking care of our customer’s brakes for over 20 years. Your brakes and how they wear can be affected by a number of things such as how you drive, what material of brakes you used at last replacement, whether you tow a trailer, haul heavy loads, or drive through steep terrain. Our customers can depend on Sonny’s to do a thorough brake inspection of all your brake parts and advise you of all your options.

Spongy Pedal

You may have air or moisture in your system ​if you notice that your brake pedal is spongy or slow to respond. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means that over time, it absorbs water. When brake fluid absorbs water, it becomes less effective and can easily overheat and leave you with a spongy pedal. Let us test your brake fluid when we service your car's brakes so we can let you know if it’s time to flush.
