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.

What People Say About Us
My 1996 Chevy pick up started running rough. I took it to Darrells. The mechanic worked his tail off to diagnose a very rare and strange issue. He was able to fix it and came in 600 dollars under the quote. Chris was my customer service agent and he was amazing. He kept me informed and was very thorough in his explaining the issue. This garage is trustworthy and honest as the day is long. I will come back for any and all of my mechanical and maintenance needs.
Honest, helpful staff and fair pricing. Thumbs up!
I had my car fixed at Darrell's. I liked the fast service and the way Chris took time to explain the issue. I would definitely recommend!
The road hazard insurance provided by Darrell's Firestone on a set of tires installed by them is fantastic $10 per tire. I had to pay only a very small fee to have a blowout tire replaced after 18 months of install.
