The brake system is one of the most important safety systems in your vehicle. Keeping up with brake repairs and maintenance is critical to your safety on the road. The brake system is comprised of many components including brake pads, cylinders, drums and rotors. These components all endure wear and tear with miles driven and will need replacement and maintenance at some point. But if you are diligent with your brake system maintenance you can hopefully prevent the need for major repairs. As part of Milex's safety check we will inspect your brake system for any needed maintenance or repairs. Maintenance may include flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system and brake pad replacement. Repairs may include replacement of hoses or rotors.
