Chantilly & Warrenton Brakes

Brakes are the most important safety feature of your car.If there’s one repair for your vehicle that you absolutely should not or in some instances cannot wait for, it’s replacing your brakes. Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year.


Perhaps the most obvious sign that your brakes need attention is a high pitched squeal when you come to a stop. Brake pad manufacturers typically include a piece called an indicator on the pad itself. When the material wears down, the metal piece begins to touch the vehicle’s rotor, making a sound that’s difficult to ignore. Depending on how hard you drive, this sound indicates that you should get your brake pads replaced within the month.

Sometimes the indicator falls off or there is no indicator at all. If your vehicle is taking longer than usual to stop or if your brake pedal travels farther than it used to, it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked.


Life in Northern Virginia can be extremely hard on your brakes. We have harsh winters, hot summers and terrible stop and go traffic. This combination is a recipe for disaster for your braking system. If your brakes are squealing, or winter is approaching, bring your vehicle to Advanced Automotive Inc. for repairs. Our professional team will help get you safely back on the road quickly and efficiently.

After a botched oil change from a local automotive company which caused my vehicle to make a few unnatural sounds. I dropped my Jeep Patriot off at advanced automotive and within an hour they had diagnosed and repaired the issues caused by Virginia auto and tire. Great staff and easy to work with, super friendly. My family also uses Advance auto, their towing service is really cool along with knowledge drivers. I wish all mechanics we as friendly, honest and knowledgeable as this company.

It was quick and amazing. I just came in for a simple safety inspection for my motorcycle and the person who did my bike was very careful. He got me to come out and ask me where i wanted the inspection sticker, he wanted me to watch him do it. I thought that was very respectable and honest. Great place, i will definitely come back to them!
