Helping You Control Your Vehicle When You Need to Stop
It’s one thing to get your truck or vehicle going but getting it to stop when you need it to is another matter entirely. Whether you’re driving a diesel truck or a standard car, you need to be able to reliably stop your vehicle quickly and safely to prevent dangerous accidents. Quality, well-maintained brakes are essential, and at DEI Truck & Fleet, we have everything Santa Clarita residents need to make sure their vehicles can safely stop at the drop of a hat.
From basic repairs and maintenance to full part replacements, our mechanics can provide brake services to any type of vehicle you drive. Like everything else we do, our brake services are designed to ensure that no matter how long your drive is, you can rely on your vehicle to keep you safe and get you where you need to go.
Are Your Brakes in Good Shape?
It’s important to know when your breaks need servicing as soon as possible. Having your breaks fail to work entirely can be catastrophic, so make sure you contact us at the first sign of an issue so we can get things fixed before any problems get worse.
Signs That You Need Professional Brake Services Include:
- Your brake light is on
- Strange squealing, squeaking, or grinding noises when you use your brakes
- Your vehicle vibrates, lurches, wobbles, or drifts to one side when you brake
- Your vehicle bounces when you come to a sudden stop
- “Soft” brake pedals
- Leaking brake fluid
- You smell something burning as you drive
The Importance of Properly Working Brakes
Having properly working brakes is crucial for the safety of the driver, passengers, and others on the road. Here are a few reasons why:
Stopping distance: Brakes are responsible for bringing a vehicle to a stop. If the brakes are not working properly, the stopping distance will be longer, which can lead to accidents and collisions.
Control: Properly working brakes help the driver maintain control of the vehicle. When brakes are not functioning correctly, the driver may experience a loss of control, which can be dangerous, especially in emergency situations.
Prevent accidents: Functional brakes can help prevent accidents by allowing the driver to stop quickly and safely. Brakes that are not working properly can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle, which can lead to accidents and collisions.
Legal requirements: In most states, it is illegal to drive a vehicle with faulty brakes. Failing to maintain properly working brakes can result in traffic tickets, fines, and even license suspension.
Peace of mind: Having properly working brakes provides peace of mind for the driver and passengers, knowing that the vehicle can stop safely in any situation.
Overall, it's crucial to regularly maintain and repair brakes to ensure they are functioning properly and to help prevent accidents and ensure the safety of everyone on the road.
Services for Every Type of Vehicle
At DEI Truck & Fleet, we pride ourselves in our ability to accommodate any kind of vehicle, from large diesel trucks to standard cars and everything in between. Our facilities and equipment can handle even the largest vehicles, and we have all the space we need to accommodate multiple vehicles of any size at the same time.
When it comes to our brake services, we make sure our Santa Clarita mechanics know how to service multiple types of braking systems. Larger trucks typically use an air braking system that doesn’t require brake fluid. While this negates the need for regular fluid refills, these systems come with their own troubles and issues that we are more than ready to handle. Of course, we’re still prepared to handle issues with conventional, fluid-based brakes as well!
