At Alexander's Diagnostic, we want our Austintown customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 330-207-5562, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Alexander's Diagnostic offers.

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 Alexander's Diagnostic 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 Alexander's Diagnostic 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 Alexander's Diagnostic 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. Alexander's Diagnostic will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Testimonials

We have been coming to Alexander's since we moved here 4 years ago. My husband and I are absolutely pleased with the mechanics and customer service. Last February 2018 we were looking to buy a decent used car to pay cash out right. Eric and the mechanics looked at each car we brought up for a once over before we dropped about 7000.00 on one that finally got the green light and passed they're inspection. In the last 2 months my car did need some work They did the brakes all around and struts on the front. The pricing was fair and they even helped us out and let us pay the last few hundred dollars 2 weeks after repairs were done just this week we put tires on it so they did the alignment and I also needed stabilizer bars repaired on the front end Again pricing was fair and they taxied me too and from the shop as my husband was off to work until whenever the job lets him go. We are big on supporting local businesses as both of our parents had they're own shops before they retired. I appreciated the customer service We will be returning and definitely recommend them Thanks again
