Next Auto Care provides expert brake service and ASE-certified technician, so you can stay safe behind the wheel and drive away with confidence. We service the following types of brake system equipment:
Disc brakes use a disc brake rotor and a caliper. The rotor is attached to the wheel, and the caliper holds the disc brake pads in place. The friction created between the pads and the rotor slows down the car, resulting in a safe and secure stop.
Drum brakes use a brake drum, which is attached to the wheel, along with a wheel cylinder, brake return springs and brake shoes. The friction created between the brake shoes and the brake drum is what slows down and eventually stops the vehicle.
Anti-lock brakes are designed to provide superior traction on icy and slippery surfaces. The enhanced safety of anti-lock brakes makes them popular in parts of the country where ice and snow are common, but they can also provide extra traction on wet roadways.
Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are computer controlled, and this enhances their efficiency and their safety. During a sudden stop, the ABS stops the wheels from locking up. ABS design uses wheel speed sensors and a on-board computer to bring the vehicle to a safe stop even under challenging weather conditions.

No matter what type of service you need, just give Next Auto Care a call. We can discuss your specific situation, make expert recommendations and get you on your way with confidence.
Brake Fluid Flush
Over time, the fluid in your braking system can pick up dirt and contaminants, and that debris can compromise the integrity of the system. When that happens, you may notice that it takes longer to stop, or that your vehicle does not slow down as quickly as before.
Since brake fluid absorbs water from the air, it becomes less effective over time. Flushing the brake fluid can restore the integrity of your braking system and give you extra confidence behind the wheel.
Brake Pad and Shoe Replacement
If you hear a squealing sound when you step on the brakes, you probably need new brake pads or shoes. The squealing sound you hear is metal on metal, and that means the pads that protect your braking system have worn away. If you hear that telltale squealing sound, it is time to schedule service with Next Auto Care.
No matter what part of the Highlands Ranch, CO area you call home, Next Auto Care can serve all your braking system needs. From replacing your brake pads to flushing your brake fluid, Next Auto Care is always here to help.
