your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 248-477-9090 or visit us in Farmington and

vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if
you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!
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 Darrell's Firestone 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 Darrell's Firestone about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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.
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 Darrell's Firestone as soon as possible.
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. Darrell's Firestone will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Your Trusted REALTOR
Very professional! I popped in because my car/suv was over heating! My vehicle has high mileage so I was expecting at some point I was going to need some work! Darrell's Firestone was working with a full schedule but, they took it in and loaned me their loaner car no questions asked! To my surprise I've never been treated so nicely by any other auto repair place! They put all my worries to rest and the work I needed was done and I was very pleased! Thank you again for the speedy work! A new customer I am!
Recently used Darrell's Firestone for an oil change and brake service. They did a great job.
They are independently owned and operated so I'm glad to give this local business my business.
We will use them for our future needs as well.
Also, they are located in the heart of downtown Farmington with walking distance of many shops and businesses to occupy your time while you wait.
I recommend Darrell's Firestone.
