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.
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. Bankert's Garage LLC will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
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 Bankert's Garage LLC as soon as possible.
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 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 Bankert's Garage LLC about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 Bankert's Garage LLC where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Bankert's service is the greatest, very professional.
Always fair and honest!
My mom and I have been going here for the past 5-7 years. They always get the job done right and don't have to worry about taking vehicle back for the same issue like other auto shops. He always stands behind his work and pleasant to work with and gets your vehicle fixed quick and on time. I will continually keep going here to have my vehicles fixed. Also really good with quote on how much the repair could cost.
They are the best. I've been using them for almost two years and I've never had an issue where I'm concerned about them trying to rip me off for more than I need. I have no problem recommending them to anybody.
Best garage in town! I never notice when things need fixed on my car. I was in desperate need of new struts and got it done at Bankert's. It feels like a whole new car! Beyond impressed! And everyone is very kind!

He has always demonstrated to our family that he is absolutely committed to our satisfaction. I highly recommend him for ALL of your automotive needs!
Took my 2000 Saturn to 3 other transmission places. Each wanted about $3000 for a new transmission. Before I took to Bankert's, they told me that there were 2 issues that were known about the Saturn transmissions and that it was probably one of those issues. It was. It was a bad modal in the transmission. I appreciated their honesty in saving me $2300. They were very honest and very friendly. I will never look any further for my car repair or inspection.
Top notch service with an attention to detail approach. Chad and the mechanics are very personable and walk you through the entire process. Check them out. You won't be disappointed.
