The Best Brake Shop And Brake Repair Since 2009

The Southwestern New Hampshire Areas #1 Brake Repair Shop

Affordable, Fast and Friendly Repair

If you need brake maintenance or repair J.S. Automotive can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us or visit us at any of our Southwestern New Hampshire area locations and we'll inspect your vehicle's brakes, provide cost-effective recommendations, and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature so if you're unsure of their integrity please get in touch with us right away!

J.S. Automotive's Five Star Brake Services Near You:

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 J.S. Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Exchanges
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 J.S. Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
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 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.

Caliper Replacement
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 J.S. Automotive as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
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. J.S. Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

My wife's 5-yo Ford Edge developed a dead battery on Christmas day. We were able to jump start it, and drive it in to JS Auto in Grantham. Chris was kind enough to fit us in the next day, when they opened, run the full diagnostics, and install a new battery. They were fully booked that whole week, and had one person out sick, but he was able to fit us in even after the holiday. As usual, they were thorough, and did a great job. My wife and I are very appreciative of their going the extra mile to help their customers! , 12/26/2023
