Brake Replacement & Repair
Mechanical failures are one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents, especially those related to faulty brakes.
When You Should You Replace Your Brakes?
- You feel your brake pedal is soft or spongy.
- You feel that your brake pedal is hard to press.
- The brake warning light flashes.
- The car takes longer to stop.
- Your brakes continuously squeal, screech or make strange noises
It's important to get your brake looked at as soon as you see, hear or feel the above warning signs. If you take too long to change your brakes, the best case scenario is you'll have a $3000 repair bill for replacing the whole system and the worst case scenario is you lose your brakes while driving! If you aren't sure if you need your brakes changed then book a brake inspection with one of our certified technicians.
Brake Pads & Rotors General Cost
Prices for brakes vary per vehicle but generally each side is about $100 to $150 plus the cost of the brake pads which are usually around $65 to $75 and rotors are $75 to $120. This is assuming that you have a simple domestic or Japanese sedan.
If you have a truck/van or sports car the parts can be much more - there are some European sportscars where replacing the brake pads and rotors can cost upwards of $5000!
We recommend that you read our indepth guide to brakes so you can familarize yourself with everything brakes.

Honestly of all the experiences to describe these guys is the word fun. I needed to get my brakes replaced and Hany was my tech - he was funny and it was a blast dealing with these guys.
I called these guys up and they came by the same day to replace my brakes. I waited too long to get them changed and it was getting to the point where it had to be changed but I couldn't wait so it was super sweet they came out right away. The price was fair and the mechanic super friendly. Highly recommended!
Instamek came over to replace my brake pads because they were making an noise. The service was excellent and honest plus the price I got was super fair. They said they would only replace the parts as needed and it turns out my rotors were fine but the pads got replaced. The report they sent had pictures which was nice.
I needed to get my brakes replaced because I kept on procrastinating but it was finally too late and it had to get done. I just went on google and looked for anyone that can replace my brakes and found these guys. Gave them a call - the phone operator was very friendly and they worked their schedule to get in for my brakes within the same day. It was easy and timely.
