Leaking, squeaking, grinding, grabbing, dragging, shaking, vibrating, squealing, pulling to one side, sticking pedal or hard to push...it might seem the brakes are an integral system of many potential sounds and symptoms functioning together. Don't seek a brake diagnosis online, it's best to have a master mechanic, like Sam at Charlie's, look at them.
Also, while we can get or install any o.e.m. part you want, we can usually go with an off-brand and often save you money. We won't install any part, however, unless it meets or exceeds the manufaturers specifications.

How your brakes work:
Your brakes are part of a system: you push down on your brake pedal, this activates a cylinder that releases brake fluid. This fluid goes through your brake hose to your calipers, which applies pressure and activates your brake pads.
Your brake pads push on the rotars, which are directly connected to the tire, and this stops your tire from spinning.
What is ABS?
This is from German, antiblockiersystem.or Anti-Lock Braking System. This keeps your tire from locking up and skidding, which can cause you to lose control. Newer versions of ABS can electronically control the front-to-rear brake bias, which adds control and stopping power!
Why call Charlie's?
