Brakes Service in Richmond


Protect your self with a Brake Service

Brake Servicing or Repairs are obviously required if when you hit the brakes your car takes longer to stop than it used to.. But its important to know there are less noticeable warning signs that you must be aware of to ensure your safety when travelling on the road.

The following symptoms mean you should have your brake system tested.


  • Your brake pedal feels hard, soft or spongy
  • The brake pedal feels low
  • Your vehicle loses grip during braking
  • Your vehicle veers to the left or right when braking
  • Your steering wheel shudders when you brake
  • There is a squeal sound when you brake


If you become aware of any of these symptoms , contact us at Matlin Auto Repairs as soon as possible.
