Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit D & D Auto & Fleet where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at D & D Auto & Fleet about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact D & D Auto & Fleet as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. D & D Auto & Fleet will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
D&D has quick and friendly service. They checked my brakes recently, and I found that the previous service did a number on my studs and over tightened my lug nuts. Thanks y'all!
These folks are what honest repair people look like! They even offer a service to go check out a vehicle BEFORE you buy and get stuck. I highly recommend them for your car repair, Miss Debbie runs a tight ship. Thank you.
This place was awesome! They put a new water pump in my Scion xB for almost half the price Toyota was asking, and they did it in one day!! Awesome and honest!
VERY NICE PEOPLE AND WELL PRICED. TRUST WORTHY AND I WILL BE BACK. GMC 1500 SIERRA.
My fiancé & I have recently discovered D&D automotive a couple months ago and we would absolutely recommend them to anyone! Anytime we have a problem with our truck we take it right up there and they do a great job. We never have any problems with them, Debbie who works in the office is super friendly and helpful! I can't believe we didn't find out about this place sooner because we will not be taking our vehicles anywhere else but there :)
Mark & Deb show they care for your cars and very reasonable price. They know what is wrong with your car. I've been with them for almost 6 yrs and I had recommended them to lots of friends.
I had visited many places today to clear a DTC historical code. The Jeep dealer wanted $133 and keep the vehicle for two days. The staff is very friendly, professional, and caring. They didn't even want me to pay anything for 5 minutes of work to clear a code. I even offered just $20 for his time. I will definitely use this place in the near future. Thank you.
Very friendly and courteous staff. A friend of mine referred me to them. They did a great job fixing my vehicle. They're reasonable and honest. I went there thinking I had needed a major part to be replaced and after they put it on the diagnostic I was informed it was something else that was simple and less expensive too. I'm really pleased with them and their work. I will use their services again in the future. Thank you D&D.
I was told by a friend two years ago about D&D and they have been servicing my car ever since. Honest, awesome results, excellent pricing.
I have been going to D&D for 15 plus years; my husband died almost 6 years ago and he is the one who got us started with D&D. He thought so highly of them and their work that I just naturally continued using them and wouldn't want to go anywhere else. In fact, my husband's truck, which I still have, has to have an alternator or a starter and I plan to have it towed to D&D tomorrow. They are great people and do excellent work.
