Brake Service

Brake Maintenance in Collingwood

Your brakes are one of the hardest working parts of your vehicle. At Mike Jackson GM, we only use the very best certified brake parts to get the job done right. All our brakes in Collingwood are backed by a 30 Day Price Match Guarantee.

Brake Service Consists Of:

  • Inspecting brake linings, drums, and hydraulic systems
  • Adjusting parking brake cable
  • Cleaning debris & corrosion
  • Lubricating caliper pins and backing plates


Every time you depress the brake pedal, the brake shoes or pads rub against the drums or discs, causing wear. So, it’s essential to have your brakes inspected regularly every six months or 10,000 km.

Most disc brake pads have built-in wear indicators that make a high-pitched warning sound when the brakes are worn and new pads are needed. When you hear the warning sounds, bring your vehicle in to your dealership for service from the experts. Driving with worn-out brake pads is dangerous and could result in a costly brake repair.


  • Squealing can result when your brake pads are worn down to the wear indicators.
  • Pulsing in your brake pedal may mean rotors need resurfacing or possibly replacement.
  • A scraping sound and feeling in your pedal is a result of friction, which means that the brake pad may be worn and coming in contact with the rotor. If unresolved, this will lead to further complications and expenses.
  • A change in pedal pressure often means your brakes need adjusting or that your brake fluid level needs attention. An inspection is often the best way to be sure.
  • Your vehicle pulling to the left or right while braking indicates an imbalance of brake system performance.
  • You notice a change in the way your vehicle brakes or the pedal feels different than normal.
  • The parking brake doesn’t work.
  • The dash brake light or ABS light stays on.

When you notice one of these warning signs, your brakes need to be inspected and serviced immediately (Click Here).
