    Brake problems can arise in various circumstances, and they can happen when you least expect them to, which is why a regular brake service is highly recommended. The most common brake problem is wear and tear as you drive your car for long periods of time and the brake pads and linings become worn. Over time, you may require a brake pad replacement. Other causes of brake issues can include a faulty master cylinder, calipers in the braking system, loose components, grease build-up in the brake lining, or a problem with the brake drum. When moisture builds up in your brake fluid, it can diminish the performance of your brakes and corrode their parts. Ask a mechanic near you in Rosebud to check that your brake fluid is clean for efficient braking all year round.

    I was down the peninsula visiting family when my car wouldn’t start one evening. Chris from Port Phillip Automotive came and checked out the car within 20 minutes, found the problem quickly and the next day had fixed it for me. Fast, reliable and great service

    My Nissan Patrol kept having engine check light come on and it would constantly go into limp mode. The car had logged several codes and Nissan told me that the car would cost approx $6000 to repair. I got a second opinion through Chris, and within 3-4 minutes he found my supposed $6000 issue, it turns it out was a loose fuel line and it was a simple fix with a $1 hose clamp. Very happy with the outcome!
