Our latest brake repair review on Google:
“First class service! As always my recent experience at Bridwell was great. My 2012 Land Rover needed complete rear brakes, brake flush, and all new air filters. Bridwell had my LR 4, in and out in one day, called me to confirm the recommended service, gave me an estimate, and completed all work same day, and the total fee was exactly as the estimate. Bridwell has serviced my Land Rover and other vehicles over the last several years, and their customer service, quality of work, expertise, and most importantly, their honesty and integrity are what has kept me coming back to Bridwell. I would highly recommend Bridwell for all of your auto repair and service needs.” Vehicle: 2012, Land Rover LR4, HSE/LUX.

Brake Repair & Pad Replacement In Scottsdale
We provide quality brake repair, servicing nearly any make or model of car or truck. Don’t be fooled by so-called “Brake Specialists” that offer extremely low prices to replace your brakes. First, you get what you pay for. Second you will almost never get just your brake pads and or rotors turned or replaced. There will almost always be more work to do that will drive the cost of your brake repair up higher than promised.
Brakes making a high pitch squealing noise? That high pitched sound could be due to the rod that is inserted into your brakes pads. That indicates that the brake pads are wearing down. If you continue to ingore these warning sign your brakes will eventually wear out and start grinding metal on metal. You could end up damaging your rotors and having to get them spun or replaced (very expensive), which can be very costly.
European cars (Mercedes & BMW) are a little bit different. They often require that the brake pads, rotors or discs be replaced each time a brake service is performed. We also can preform brake repair for any other vehicle, both foreign imports and domestic.
Take our challenge and call a dealership and another independent repair shop for estimates. They will both tell you the same thing. Brake specialist type shops hope that once your car is at their shop you will not pull your car out because it “requires” more work than theit initial ‘low ball’ price allows.
Bridwell Automotive will never sell you anything that your brake system doesn’t absolutely need because we are priced fairly from the beginning. We make every effort to make sure each customer is satisfied every time, the first time.
You Might Need To Replace Your Rotors Too
If your vehicle’s brakes are in bad condition or you kept driving after your brakes started squealing. There is a great chance that your rotors were damaged due to the metal on metal scraping. If your rotors still have life left there is a chance you can get them spun to remove the scrapes. However, if your rotors are bad they will need to be replaced. Some brake repair shops even tell you that they won’t replace your brakes without replacing your rotors because bad rotors will wear your brakes out twice as fast.
