Toyota Brake Service and Repair in Lafayette, Louisiana.  

Your car's brakes are a huge factor in the overall safety of you, your family, and your car, and at Hampton Toyota nothing could be more important. Taking your Toyota in for regular Brake Service is something we highly recommend. When we say "Brake Service", what we mean is regularly inspecting your brakes, monitoring the wear and remaining life of your brake pads or brake shoes, and keeping the rotor or drum in good condition, and of course changing those components as necessary. "Brake Repair" is usually what is required when you haven't had regular brake service. And usually brake repair is more expensive than regular brake service. The ability to stop your vehicle in a controlled manner and in a predictable, reliable, repeatable stopping distance, is a major safety aspect of your vehicle. We all rely on the ability to stop as needed, when needed, where needed. 

It is required that every car, truck, SUV, in fact, every vehicle licensed for on-road use, have a braking system. It is a matter of safety, and every vehicle braking system is designed to match that vehicle's requirements. Your Toyota is no different. The brakes on your Toyota are specifically designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the NTSB for each specific Toyota model. For that reason it can be crucially important that you use genuine Toyota parts and supplies specifically designed to meet the specifications of your Toyota vehicle when you service or repair your brakes. 

How can you know when it's time to service, repair, or replace the brakes on your Toyota? The most common signs of weakening brakes or impending brake failure are grinding noises, clicking noises or pulling to one side. Other signs can include a high pitched squeal during or after braking, taking longer than usual to stop the forward motion of your car, or even a tire locking up and skidding. If you've experienced any of these, it may be time to have your brakes inspected or repaired. Our factory trained Toyota technicians will attempt to inspect your brakes when you have your car serviced if given the chance but often times drivers will go so long without servicing their car that we don't get the chance to warn you before any damage begins.  

We at Hampton Toyota encourage you to regularly inspect and service the brakes on your Toyota, or any other vehicle you have. Your safety, your life, and even the lives of others, could be at risk. And to ensure the best braking performance, the expert technicians at Hampton Toyota use Genuine Toyota brake parts because they have been engineered specifically for your car and they provide a more accurate fit than aftermarket parts. You may not think much about them, but the brake components on your Toyota are a highly researched, highly engineered piece of equipment. Simply put, the way brakes work is by creating friction between a spinning or rotating piece of metal that is squeezed against or between a pair of stationary non-moving softer pieces of composite material. Each one is wearing against the other and creating extreme heat and deterioration. Having those two components perform their job without falling apart is an engineering marvel and not something you want to take chances with. And if you choose aftermarket parts to replace your Toyota brakes, we're pretty sure you'll be able to tell the different, and you won't like it.
