At Southaven Car Care, we want our Southaven customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 662-393-4468, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Southaven Car Care offers.
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.
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. Southaven Car Care will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
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 Southaven Car Care as soon as possible.
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 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 Southaven Car Care about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 Southaven Car Care where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
This shop does all my maintenance. Does it right the first time.
Best Automotive shop in Southaven!!
Thanks guys for getting me back on the road at such a fair and honest price. You are the bomb diggity.
I have known Tom the owner for a long time he has always taken care of my vehicles well! Never had a problem! Matter of fact I'm taking another car to him soon for a oil leak!!
Good reliable service!
Very friendly and professional, they do great work and they explain why they need to do what they are going to do.
Very friendly atmosphere! They're very knowledgeable and the prices are reasonable. I'm returning for the second time and wouldn't take my vehicle anywhere else for repairs.
Lesson learned today: go to Southaven Car Care first! I went to three other places thinking I had a minor problem and all three offered different opinions of the problem which none of them repaired because I continued to experience various degrees of the problem. Southaven Car Care correctly diagnosed the problem, repaired the problem and had me back on the road before lunch time. Great way to do business guys - thank you.
Top-notch service with polite and professional personnel, who truly care about your experience with them. We have taken both of our autos to them for several years and trust them completely. These are honest, hard-working auto technicians, who will give you a fair price and great service, which is difficult to find in their industry. They have earned our trust and loyalty and my wife and I plan to continue taking our vehicles to them whenever we need automotive repair work.
Been taking my families vehicles for years to Tom and Chris and would never hesitate to recommend them to anyone! Professional and courteous service. 100% satisfaction!
Fast, prompt and professional service. I would take my vehicle to the business again. Great job Southaven car care. I just think the check out fee should be waived if you use this service, after the vehicle has been diagnosed.
I had a very good experience. Southaven Car Care gave me great service with expert service from everyone involved in the repairs of my Truck and my wife's car.
My experience here was fantabulous! They did a wonderful job on my truck. Great price the entire staff fantastic, from now on I have a place to get my vehicle worked on. Yes I would recommend them to anyone, if they cannot fix your vehicle I am sure they will probably recommend someone else. Thanks so much, not just a 5 star rating double that.
I had a wonderful experience with Southaven Car Care! My A/C went out on my car during the heat wave. I called them after lunch and they have replaced several things that went bad over the years. Customer service from Chris and the staff were great!

My family has used Southaven Car Care for 10 years. They have the most courteous staff and all their mechanics are certified so I know I am getting the best service!! They will always call me to let me know how much it will be to fix my vehicles before they work on them! I trust them so much that when my truck broke down out of town, I had it towed to them!!! Southaven Car Care guys, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!
