A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features,
and we want to make sure that Nice Guy Auto & Transmission customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads
are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not
comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 757-583-8500 or
visit us in Norfolk and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's
safety and reliability.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Nice Guy Auto & Transmission where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Nice Guy Auto & Transmission about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Nice Guy Auto & Transmission as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Nice Guy Auto & Transmission will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Jason was able to take care of the transmission problem accurately and not overcharge me. I recommend you try his service!
Jason is an honest mechanic. He lets you bring in parts and only charges labor. Even when an additional part was needed to fix my AC, he only charges me his original quote for labor.
