Brake Services

Brakes are an incredibly important feature of your car for the safety of you and your passengers. If your brakes are making squealing, grinding or scraping sounds, be sure to take your vehicle to Harmon Expert Auto Service for prompt and affordable service you can trust. Our experienced technicians, conveniently located in downtown La Porte, Indiana, provide repair and replacement services for brakes and brake pads for vehicles of all types. 

Over time, we become familiar with our vehicle’s brakes. We know how they sound, how the pedal feels beneath our foot and generally how quickly our car will stop. One day, likely due to friction and heat, your car doesn’t slow down as quickly as it used to, or your brakes make a terrible noise. That’s when you know it’s time to call the experts at Harmon Auto.

WARNING SIGNS OF BRAKE FAILURE:

Brake Light Is On

We have all seen our dashboard lights come on and when they do, it doesn't mean we should ignore them. It is always better to have it checked.

Squealing and Grinding Noise

These noises are clear warning signs of failure of the brake pads. This means that the pads are worn down to almost nothing and that metal is scraping on the brake rotor.

Spongey Brakes

When the lines are low in fluid, it’s much easier to press the pedal to the floor without the vehicle stopping

Leaking Brake Fluid

The braking system is based on hydraulics, when there’s not enough fluid in the lines, the brakes won’t work.
