Aussie Tune Dandenong are brake repair specialists in Dandenong & Keysborough, as the braking system is one of the most important safety components of your vehicle. To ensure the safety of you and your family it is vital that you get it checked regularly. Brakes should be checked by your local car mechanic during the regular servicing of your vehicle.
Do Your Brakes Need Checking?
Some of the signs that there are problems with your brakes include:
A grinding or squealing sound when you press the brake pedal
Listen to grinding or squealing sounds when you brake, this might mean you need new brake pads. To further check this issues its best to look at your brake pads and see if they have at least 1/4 inch of the pad left. If brake pads are worn out the outside pad brushes against the metal rotor causing a grinding or squealing sound.
A spongy brake pedal
A spongy brake pedal is caused due to air in the brake system. When there is air in the brake system, it prevents brake fluid from flowing properly. This results in a spongy brake pedal and may require brake fluid flush.
The car pulling to one side when you brake
If you car is pulling to one side on braking it may be due to worn or warped rotors, it may also cause the vehicle to vibrate in certain conditions. Sometimes this can be caused due to contamination on the braking surface.

Outstanding customer service and thorough mechanic work!
Booked my Volkswagen Golf in for a major service. When I first arrived Nigel was very welcoming. I had a problem picking up my car but they made it work with ease! Just overall a great experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

After first coming into Aussie Tune with a engine code on my 2011 MK6 R, Nigel took the time to scan it the same day as me calling him and take it for a quick drive to make sure everything was ok. I Recently had a major service there which was very reasonably priced and completed very quickly, also providing a loan car to me for the day. I highly recommend Nigel and the team, as he has exemplary customer service and mechanical skills.

Nigel and the team were very easy to deal with. Great communication and friendly service left me confident they would do a great job on my Audi A5 (which needed a fair bit of work done!) and it's driving better now than it has in years. Nigel always followed up with regular updates on progress on the work that needed to be done. Really pleased and will definitely be back now for regular servicing. Highly recommended .
