A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 714-375-3145 or visit us in Huntington Beach and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.



Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

I've been a big fan of Val and Mike's for nearly fifteen years, starting when the Honda dealer told me I needed a $1600 head gasket and Mike fixed my overheating problem with a new hose for $85. Later, I depended on them to keep our daughter's car safe when she was a student in San Francisco. Wherever they fixed something, it was always done right and stayed fixed. And with our daughter 400 miles away, that peace of mind was priceless. Just last week they replaced suspension parts on my Prius and replaced the brakes on my daughter's aging VW Rabbit with the same care and expertise as always. Finding the right mechanic is like finding the right doctor or plumber, and we definitely found ours. With competence, integrity and reasonable prices, Val and Mike's is the complete package!

Great service! Connected via yelp quote with quick replies. Brought in my car for new brakes and the job was done within 4 hours. Easy drop off and pick. Will come back again for future services. Pricy was extremely reasonable as well. Thanks!

Val and Mike's Auto Repair Center has always been amazing to me! This time was no exception. The Master Cylinder had been replaced 10 months ago, and went out. They replaced it, at no cost to me. Thank you!
