We Answer Common Car Repair Questions

Aloha! At Lex Brodie’s Tire, Brake & Service Company, we invite your questions. We love talking about cars, car repair, brake repair and tires!!

One question we received recently was from Parker: “Why do my brakes squeak?”

Dear Parker –

There are several reasons brakes can squeak. One minor reason that happens often is wet brakes, or a small amount of rust or dirt on the brakes. Usually this kind of squeak stops after the car dries off, or has been driving for a while.

However, the problem can be serious. If the squeaking continues or if it turns into a more serious sound like a grinding or a squeal, you’re going to want to get that checked. It may be that something important needs immediate attention and you don’t want to take a chance with such an important part of your car!

And remember too, the longer you wait to get your car to a mechanic, the worse the damage can get.

There’s good news! With an appointment, we perform free brake inspections for most passenger and LT vehicles. Please visit lexbrodies.com and set up a free brake inspection on-line! Here is our Brake Service webpage; https://www.lexbrodies.com//brakes.

If we can assist you, please make an appointment!

Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

I always receive great service from this location. Today I had Jack and he was awesome. He explained the services and pricing. Extremely helpful. The woman who cashed me out (ugh I wish I got her name) was so kind and courteous, too! 5-stars all around! Mahalo!

Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.
