Time to Stop for Brake Service?

 
There’s a lot to look forward to during the summer. There’s lovely weather, quality time with family, and plenty of time for road trips. But you won’t be the only one on the road between now and Labor Day, and not all of the luxury cars in New England will be driven by someone as careful as you. Your driving skills and your brakes will both be getting a workout, so a bit of preparation is in order. Have your brakes checked — and serviced — with the dealerships of Lyon-Waugh Auto Group. 

The cars we sell are built to perform. Not only will their high-horsepower engines motivate several thousand pounds of metal quickly, they’re also built to stop nearly as quickly. But just like constant motion takes a toll on your engine, frequent stops take a toll on your brakes. 

That wear can be daunting if you neglect your brakes. Follow suggested service intervals, but also keep an eye — and an ear — out for common warning signs like longer stopping distances, odd noises or squeaking when you brake, or a softer feel from the brake pedal. 

Also remember that your brakes are a system made up of many parts, each of them — discs or drums, rotors, brake lines, brake fluid, and a master cylinder among them — subject to wear over time. A qualified and experienced technician can diagnose your problem quickly and correctly so you’re not paying for repairs you don’t need; nobody wants the expense of a master cylinder replacement if all that’s needed is having the rotors resurfaced or replaced, or having the brake lines bled. 

That’s why we encourage you to visit the dealerships of Lyon-Waugh Auto Group. You’ll be safer on the road this summer, and you can be confident in the quality of our parts and service. That peace of mind is priceless! Call us today for New England automotive service you can trust!
