BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR
A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Das Performance 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 540-699-0558 or visit us in Fredericksburg 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 Das Performance 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 Das Performance 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 Das Performance 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. Das Performance will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Great shop, nice guys. Got my HPDE inspection done quickly and thoroughly.
I took my European vehicle to them for the first time several months ago & they did a major job: replaced the water pump, "programed" a new battery someone else installed in my vehicle & checked the car overall. A few months have passed and my vehicle runs like new! My most recent visit a couple days ago from the time of this post was for an oil change. I was pleasantly surprised that they gave me a $25 discount on the oil change! According to their website, they are partners with several companies/groups. I found them on Beemer World. Let's just say, I'm planning to take another car to them to have a check engine light diagnostic test performed. I will let you know how that works out!
Top-notch shop. Top-notch service. Respectful and knowledgeable. I couldn't ask for anything better.
