Get a Brake Repair in Ottawa from ASE-Certified Technicians

Depending on your own personal experience, a vehicle’s braking system is either the most important or one of the top-three most important features of a vehicle. If your car or truck has an issue with its braking system, and you neglect to have it looked at by a mechanic, you are putting your vehicle, your life, and the lives of others at risk. 

Did you know Ottawans spend upwards of 90 hours per year in stop-and-go traffic? All that braking puts a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle’s brake pads and rotors. And, in the lifetime of your vehicle, you will most likely need some moderate repair work performed on the brake system. But you can’t go just anywhere for a brake repair in Ottawa; you really need to put your vehicle in the hands of a true mechanic, such as the ASE-certified technicians of Kavanaugh Garage. If it’s brakes, you better call Kavanaugh Garage.

Go with the Team that Knows Brake Repair in Ottawa

At Kavanaugh Garage, our mechanics understand all the nuances of a vehicle’s braking system — from the pads and calipers, to brake lines and vacuum boosters. On vehicles with anti-lock brake systems (ABS) — a majority of cars and trucks these days — going to a knowledgeable mechanic specializing in brakes will prevent otherwise unnecessary (and expensive) repairs down the road. 

Our mechanics can service, replace, or repair brake parts such as:

  • Brake pads
  • Rotors
  • Shoes
  • Brake lines
  • Master cylinders
  • ...and others

Know the Warning Signs of a Bleeding Brake Line

The obvious sign of a bleeding brake line (pooling clear or light brown fluid under the car) may not be so obvious. But, if you are experiencing any of the following issues with your car, stop driving it immediately and bring it into our shop:

  • When pressed down, your brake pedal will feel “spongier” or softer
  • You are able to press your brake pedal all the way to the floor
  • The ABS or brake light comes on or is flashing on your dash
  • Brake fluid is visible under your vehicle

Bring Your Car to Us!

Are you experiencing any of these issues? Stop driving your vehicle and have it towed or brought into Kavanaugh Garage. Our mechanics have countless years of experience in troubleshooting and resolving brake issues. This experience means you’ll have your car or truck in and out of our shop as quickly as possible, saving you time and money.
