Brake Repair and Replacement near Antioch, IL

Brake Repair and Replacement near Antioch, IL

Needless to say, the brakes are one of the most important components of your vehicle. That’s why it’s critical to stay on top of any issues that might be affecting them, and Gillespie Ford is here to help you do so. Keep reading for more information about why brake service might be necessary and what we’ll do to keep you safe out on the road.

Warning Signs

You’ll want to pay close attention to how your brakes are behaving, because any irregularity can mean that you might be in for expensive, dangerous damage if you let it go ignored. One of the more obvious signs of trouble is the sound of your brakes — listen for scraping or grinding when you’re slowing down, which could indicate that they’ve eroded to the point where metal-on-metal contact is being made. It’s also important to note how your brakes feel when you apply them, because if they seem squishy or even completely fall to the floor, the pads are likely quite worn out and will require repair or replacement. If you have a gut feeling that your brakes aren’t behaving like they should, it’s a wise decision to have them looked at as soon as possible so their behavior doesn’t worsen and become a safety hazard.

Replacement Timeline

Not all brake issues are as obvious as those noted above, which is why it’s important to follow a timeline for maintenance. Because vehicles and drivers vary, brakes typically have a lifespan of anywhere between 25,000 to 75,000 miles. That’s a wide range, but your best bet is to follow the traditional rule of thumb that every 12,000 miles is a good interval to have your brakes inspected. We’ll take a look at their status to make sure they’re on pace to last as long as they should, taking into consideration factors like the type of car you’re driving and the unique weather demands of our area.

Justin the sales rep and Nate the manager were so awesome to work with! They made the process as painless as possible, walked through each step with us and made sure I walked away with a car I loved and a great price. Overall everyone at the dealership was so kind and wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the visit. I even got a call a couple of days after I got the car just to make sure everything was going well so far! Amazing customer service, highly recommend

I came into this dealership with no idea what I wanted for a car or even if I’d be able to get approved for one. But I got to leave with a beautiful 2020 Ford Fusion. I highly recommended Justin! He was amazing and so professional and he knew the right car for me to test drive and I fell in love instantly! Thank you so much for getting me my dream car!!

Great Service and Great Price!

Frank in sales was amazing the best customer service experience I had ever had at a dealership. He was very informative and kept it customer oriented with no pressure to buy if even unsatisfied. My purchase didn't have that problem which made me more happy to purchase and recommend.

The employees at Gillespie are fantastic. I was treated with respect and kindness. the mere fact that they would take a used car and touch up the dings for me for a sale was great. I was at a dealer prior to this one and when I asked the same question they said no. So, I left.

My wife and I walked in today to see what Gillespie has to offer for cars on a new Fusion. We were greeted by the sales person Lee, he extended his advanced customer service assistance immediately, which is very important as a form of aknowledgment every customer should receive👍. He was incredibly helpful, kind, and patient during our time at the dealership. We later met with the manager Nate, he was was fantastic, very knowledgeable and not at all pushy neither was Lee. He showed us many different options and really helped us pick out the perfect option and a great deal as well. The entire process was so easy and pressure free. In conclusion, if it weren’t for Lee and Nate today, my wife and I probably would have walked out of the dealership today without purchasing any car. Thank you guys!

Clean facilty and good service
