Our professional staff can help with brake repair and related maintenance for your Audi vehicle. That’s what we are all about, and we have made quite an investment in learning about how these vehicles are made, and how they work.
One of the first things to know about this type of work is this: these luxury German vehicles have specific types of brake systems that require some ongoing work to keep them in good shape.
We make it a top priority to stay up-to-date on what Audi is putting into their cars and SUVs, in order to serve you well as an Audi owner and driver. Brakes are an important part of vehicle maintenance, along with things like tires, engine work, and more. You can be confident about going to a shop that provides the right care and attention for your car.
Audi and Common Braking Systems
At a very fundamental level, Audis have the same types of brake systems that many other vehicles do. They have brakes that work on the principle of friction, where a master cylinder delivers fluid to push brake parts together and stop the vehicle.
However, each make and model of vehicle has its own particular OEM brake systems and brake parts, so the technicians have to know what they’re getting into on each individual brake job, and what parts to use. They also have to know what methods to use to repair parts, according to factory specifications. That requires some specific research into factory-direct operations and the manufacturer’s build plan – and your professional brake repair shop should have looked into this.
Disc and Drum Brakes
Technicians working on Audi also have to know about both common types of brake systems, including disc and drum brakes.
Disc brakes have rotors and other parts that control the vehicle stop through the use of brake fluid. Disc brakes are, in some ways, easier to work on or replace, and they are very common in many types of vehicles, including most Audis.
However, some models of Audi SUVs and heavier vehicles also have drum brake systems. Drum brake systems are common on some larger vehicles. In some ways, they last longer and may be less expensive to repair over time. On the other hand, they have certain complicated parts not involved in disc brake systems, so some people find the disc brakes easier to work on, in general.
Customer Service and Expertise
Drivers need two major things from a mechanic shop when they bring their Audi in for brake repair. They need technicians who know their stuff when it comes to replacing parts, repairing systems and keeping Audi brake systems in good and serviceable condition. They also need good customer service – excellence in scheduling a job, good communication throughout, and people who clearly value their role as customers. With a specialized communications system in place, we strive to cultivate our reputation as one of the best local shops around for Audi owners. We know that these vehicles are special imports that their owners are proud of, and we take care to go to work with that idea in mind. We also cultivate integrity as a corporate principal, in order to serve our customers better, and stand behind our work with confidence. That’s a value to you as you carefully maintain your Audi.
