Stop and Check Your Brakes




Brake Safety Awareness Month in August is the perfect time to have your brakes checked to make sure they are in safe working condition before summer ends and the school year starts, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they're going to need to be replaced. A vehicle's braking system should be checked at least once a year and a thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.



A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle operation and control under a variety of driving conditions. Motorists can put a stop to any potential brake system problems by recognizing the signs and symptoms that their brake system may need maintenance or repair.



If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, they should be inspected. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.



Several factors affect brake wear including driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair, such as letting the brakes get to the "metal-to-metal" point, which can be potentially dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.

what our customers say

I have always been the gatekeeper of vehicles and have always used independent auto repair services. Of all the auto repair service places I have used, D&G Tire and Auto is the absolute best. Dennis and his brother are honest, fair, and perform excellent work. They never try to "sell" you on repairs that are not needed or don't immediately need to be performed. They talk to you in a kind and informative and respectful way. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. You will be very happy.

Honest and trustworthy. Two qualities that are hard to find these days. My vehicle has quite a bit of miles on it and destined for things to go wrong. I will drive a half an hour just to bring my car to DG's. I am a single lady with no automotive experience and would typically be the classic 'easy target' at many automotive repair shops. Dennis never tries to sell me things that I don't need, and I appreciate that more than anything. I value his kindness and professionalism. I get great service at a fair price, and my car is finished the same day. I drive away feeling like I got my money's worth. In my opinion, DG's Tire and Auto is by far the best around!

Dennis and the team are flat awesome. They are flexible, affordable and trust worthy. He worked in my truck on a Saturday and quickly and professionally did my breaks in a few hours. I trust him with all our vehicle needs and will be a repeat customer from now on. Five stars.

This is the best automotive shop I could ask for. They know who I am every time I call, their work is top of the line and their prices are even in budget for a single mother of 2. I had them find me a new engine after Wal-Mart messed mine up and my car has never run better. I go there for every issue I have no matter how minor and they always know just what to do and I am not paying an arm and a leg. As long as they are here they will have my business and anyone else that I can convince to go. If you try them once you will keep going back.

I must say what a great pair of guys . They have been my sole mechanics since 2008. All three family vehicles have been there for various problems. He does everything from bulb replacement to transmission replacement . Love him not trying to sell me a new air filter with every oil change !!
