Performance isn't just about speed - it's about how that speed is controlled. A vehicle's brakes involve an intricate system of interrelated parts and components that form a critical safety system. BestDrive mechanics are expertly trained to ensure that your vehicle's brakes are in good working order.

Brake pads and brake rotors are classified as wear items. For your vehicle's brakes to be effective, they need to be clean, adjusted properly and not too worn. Whilst the components of a brake system may vary from make to make, the warning signs of a poor performing brake system remain the same. 
If you experience any of the below warning indicators, contact BestDrive to arrange an inspection of your brake system. 
  • A change in the feel of the brake pedal (soft, spongy, hard or low pedal)  
  • Vehicle takes longer to stop than normal  
  • Losing grip on the road when braking  
  • Grinding or squealing noises  
  • Steering wheel shuddering  
  • Pulses in the brake pedal  
  • Vehicle is veering to either side 
Given how central your vehicle’s brake system is to the overall safety of your vehicle, all
inspections, services and repairs should be strictly conducted by a qualified technician. You
simply can’t afford to compromise. Your brakes are not only responsible for stopping the car -
they also help you decelerate when going downhill, help in avoiding collisions and keep your
vehicle stationary when not being used.

At BestDrive, our services include:
  • Front and rear brake reline 
  • Disc and drum machining 
  • Brake system bleeding 
  • Caliper overhauls 
  • Braking upgrades and performance products 

BestDrive offers a variety of quality car brake parts, including brake pads, brake discs and brake shoes. Eliminate your concerns and avoid potentially expensive repairs further down the track by having your brake system checked at regular intervals with your local BestDrive store. We ensure that you leave feeling confident in the safety of your vehicle's braking system and with a clear understanding of what repairs were undertaken and why.

BestDrive. You drive, we care.
