Brake Servicing & Repairs

With every car service, we assess your car’s brake fluids, inspect your parking brake, and measure wear on your front and rear brake pads. We also inspect rotors and drums for any signs of bad issues.

If you notice your car taking longer to stop or it starts to shake when braking then it’s time to book a brake inspection. These signs are an indication that your brakes are wearing low and require servicing or replacing.

  • Your brakes are making noises, including grinding, squealing, or metal on metal sounds.

  • The pedal feels spongy when the brakes are applied.

  • Your steering wheel shakes while braking.

  • Your vehicle wobbles or pulsates when you brake at any speed.

  • Your car seems to pull to one side when you brake.

  • The brake light or ABS light on your dashboard is illuminated.

    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 Daniel Kouvaras
    Have been through many different mechanics over the years. Chris and Port Phillip Automotive have been the best by far. An honest company that cares about their customers and always does a great job. Will definitely continue to use their services. Kevin Sharpe
    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! Truckie 86
