FREE Courtesy Check with Every Brake Repair
We offer a 100% free courtesy check with every brake repair service in Virginia. This complimentary inspection is part of our commitment to maintaining your car in the best possible condition to ensure your complete safety on the road.
Our technicians check your vehicle for any issues with all of its systems — not just the brakes. If we find any problems, we’ll let you know what they are and how we can address them, along with a free estimate.
The goal of the courtesy check is to inform you, not press you into a sale. We want you to know what’s going on with your car so you can make the choice that works best for you.

How Often Should You Get Your Brakes Serviced?
The recommended brake service intervals for car brakes are 20,000-50,000 miles or every six months.
Your owner’s manual will show your car manufacturer’s recommended service intervals. However, brakes can wear out faster or slower depending on your driving habits, how much you drive, and the local road conditions.
Northern Virginia’s varying weather conditions can be extremely rough on your brakes. Our road surfaces also get slippery in winter, so you must maintain your brakes in perfect condition for maximum safety. We recommend you bring your car in for a brake check every fall so icy winter roads won’t take you by surprise.
5 Signs Your Car Needs Brake Repair Service ASAP
You can’t afford to wait to get poorly functioning brakes repaired. For your own safety, it’s important that you know the most common telltale signs of worn or faulty brakes.
If you notice any of these symptoms, bring your car to Advanced Automotive for brake repair service without delay:
Squealing or Grinding
If your brakes squeal or sound like a jackhammer when you brake, your brake pads are worn down and need immediate replacement.
A shaking or vibrating car or brake pedal can indicate that your brake rotors are warped.
Strange Pedal Feel
You may have air in your brake lines or a faulty master cylinder if your brake pedal feels spongy, soft, or travels unusually far before the brakes stick.
Loss of Stopping Power
If your car takes a long time to stop after pressing the brakes, you may have a brake fluid leak, or your brake pads could be dangerously worn.
Active Warning Light
Don’t delay brake service if you notice a brake or ABS warning light on the dashboard — that’s your car telling you that it needs immediate help.
It may be dangerous to drive a car that’s experiencing brake issues. We offer free towing services within 10 miles of our shops. If you don’t dare drive your vehicle, just call us and we’ll bring it in for a comprehensive brake check and repair.
