Quality Services for Your Undercar and Brakes
For obvious reasons, your vehicle’s brakes are extremely important to maintaining road safety. Everyone depends on their vehicle’s braking system to work, and it’s easy to take for granted that it always will. However, it’s essential to have this key component properly maintained, or your vehicle will require more distance to come to a stop, which in turn compromises your safety and the safety of those around you. In addition, the sophisticated computer-controlled, anti-lock systems of modern vehicles require maintenance to ensure proper performance.
The ASE-certified technicians at Veenstra’s Garage are trained to inspect, diagnose and repair braking systems of any kind. Our professional technicians can pinpoint the problem, whether it’s something as simple as a brake adjustment or as complex as repairing anti-lock braking systems, and fix the problem quickly and accurately. For brake repair in Grand Rapids or Ada, request an appointment or call us at (616) 682-1470 for Grand Rapids or (616) 682-1470 for our Ada location.
In addition to your brakes, your vehicle’s undercar requires regular maintenance. Your exhaust system needs to be working properly in order for engine trouble to be avoided. You also don’t want to be driving down the street and waking up the whole neighborhood with awful coughing, spluttering engine sound so be sure to get your muffler inspected every so often to avoid an embarrassingly loud ride.
Our qualified brake technicians provide reliable brake repair and maintenance, backed by our 3-year/ 36,000-mile warranty. Brake maintenance and repair services include:
- Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
- Rotor Resurface

- Brake Hoses

You should also rotate your tires regularly to prevent uneven tread wear. Uneven tread occurs due to the fact that most vehicles don’t distribute weight evenly between the front and rear tires. In general, front tires tend to deteriorate faster than their rear counterparts due to both location and engine weight. By getting regular tire rotations performed, tire wear will be distributed more evenly, and tires won’t need to be replaced as frequently.
In addition to extending tire life, routine tire rotation services can also improve your gas mileage as well-maintained tires reduce rolling resistance, which affects your vehicle’s performance and MPG performance. If you have questions about how often you should rotate your tires, simply ask a member of the friendly staff at Veenstra’s Garage.
