Exhaust issue don't have to be exhausting, and here's why

exhaust on a vehicle

Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At The Brake Shop in Mesa, AZ, we can get your exhaust back in shape in no time.

Exhaust issues tend to be neglected, and we get that; there are just other parts of your vehicle that you'd rather focus on. Besides a clogged catalytic converter, there isn’t much risk of damage from a bad exhaust system - it negatively affects your gas mileage, and the sound is annoying, but other than that, it’s an issue many people learn to live with.

Dash Warning Lights to Watch For!

battery warning light

It doesn't matter if you are driving a car or truck, jeep or SUV, a diesel 4x4 or a classic when those dash warning lights go off the first thing you do is think "how bad is it?" and "how much will it cost me?" followed quickly by "when was my last service visit?"!!  Driving your vehicle longer safely is all about getting it serviced based on what your vehicle manual recommends and these warning lights are alerting you to a situation that requires your attention. 

While not all warning lights are a sign that disaster is imminent, no warning indicator light should ever be ignored!

Quality work!

This shop is amazing. I literally drive all the way from the Queen Creek area to have them work on my vehicles. Carl at the front desk is awesome and all the guys here know their stuff. They won't try to charge you for stuff you don't need, and they do quality work. They are very quick to correct any mistakes they make as long as you give them a chance too. They always complete repairs in a very reasonable amount time. Plus they have a very comfortable waiting room and clean restroom. - Jon H. (5 star review on Google)

Repairs are costly and we all want to avoid them including our team here at The Brake Shop!  It's our job and we take it seriously.  Here, it is all about keeping your car or truck serviced and looking for problems "before" they happen to avoid those high repair costs and ensuring you avoid any breakdowns when it's hot outside or cold outside as either is a problem for our Mesa drivers!  Nobody can forsee a flat tire or blowout due to running over a nail, but we can avoid some of the regular issues we see all the time such as....

Make that transmission last, it's simple!

Transmission Cut to show you the inside of it

Nothing works if your transmission doesn't work!  Simply put you are going nowhere without it and it is the one thing that both car and truck drivers alike never think twice about until it really acts up or they have no power or simply don't move forward.  Most of us have a newer car or truck with an automatic transmission in it vs. a standard transmission so do not notice that it is slipping gears until the problem is really serious so the question is how do you get the most out of your transmission?  The obvious answer is to take care of your transmission with scheduled service per your owner's manual recommendation but we have put together a simple checklist for our Mesa drivers to help them become "transmission aware" as it were.

Great repair shop!

This is a great repair shop. It seems hard to find an honest mechanic but here you don't have to worry. The staff is great and helpful.
