A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Affordable Kar Kare customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 972-329-0771 or visit us in Mesquite and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.
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 Affordable Kar Kare 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 Affordable Kar Kare 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 Affordable Kar Kare 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. Affordable Kar Kare will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
Good, dedicated, and honest service
Perry is great! Knowledgeable, reliable, and funny.
Good place and the owner is a fair guy. I recommend this place for sure and they have coupons too!
Russell is the man. I spent a lot of money. But he told me every problem, even describing the sound so I knew what was fixed and his only concern was my safety. Even when he knew I didn't get paid till Friday he fixed it and said pay it Friday. His concern was my safety. That's not just a good mechanic but an awesome human.
I have seen the reviews but my experience with this shop was great , maybe they had different mechanics then but I brought my Trans Am to them for a problem that 2 other shops in mesquite could not diagnose or fix ! Friend referred me and we'll all I can say is this is the only shop who could diagnose and fix my car . They are very honest and up front on what your car needs and doesn't need and they checked everything even let me know that certain belts would need to be changed soon and showed me so I will never take my car anywhere else.
I like Affordable Kar Kare. We take all our cars there, and they always work hard to fix the problem. It is a great value for your money.
This is a great place to take your vehicle for service and repairs. I always feel that I'm getting a great deal and reasonable price and have never been talked down too and all services are explained to where I understand them. Thank you Perry and keep up the great work!
From the time the gentleman that answered the phone to the time I left with my vehicle completly fixed, my entire experience with Affordable was incredible. They answered ALL of my questions and gave me all my options. I am so incredibly impressed with the service and the work that I get there.They even dropped me off at work. That's service!!
Great place to take your car. They have years of experience. Took my 2004 F150 up there and they had it running like a champ in no time. They informed me of why I needed the repairs and the most affordable way to go. Love these guys!!! They really live up to the name AFFORDABLE
A brake warning displayed on the dash of my Mercedes on Saturday afternoon. I got to Affordable Kar Kare just before they were supposed to close. One of my brake pads had broken and was literally crumbling apart!!! I could not drive it without tearing up the rotors or wait until after Labor Day. They stayed open late for me, replaced the brake pads and turned the rotors. Even though their guys were ready to start the Labor Day holiday.. they stayed late to help me and I paid less than I expected. I cannot ask for better customer service than that. Thank you
