Brake Pad Replacement Service near Downers Grove, IL

Brake Pad Replacement Service near Downers Grove, IL

We'll Have Your Brakes Fixed in No Time!

What Are Brake Pads?

There are lots of components that are necessary for an automobile to run, but one in particular that you don’t want to take chances with is the brake pad. This is critical to ensuring that you safely and quickly come to a stop. Fresh pads can be the difference between a light fender bender and a totaled vehicle, or between a close call and an actual accident. Stay as safe on the road as you can by following our team’s advice and coming to McGrath Honda of St. Charles for brake pad replacement service.

The Purpose of Brake Pads

Every time you come to a stop, you’re activating your brakes and your brake pads by extension. When you depress the pedal, brake calipers clamp around your wheel and use friction to bring you to a swift halt. If this was metal pressed against metal, not only would you be subjected to a horrible screeching sound, but your parts would rapidly wear each other away. Brake pads act as a barrier and help make your stop as quick, smooth, and comfortable as possible. However, friction will break them down over time, so it’s important to be conscientious about this supremely important component.

Signs of Faulty Brake Pads

If you drive every single day, faulty brake pads can easily creep up and take you by surprise. That’s why it’s good to stay aware of the way that your vehicle is behaving every time you drive it. That way you can notice parts that aren’t working optimally and nip the hazard in the bud. If you’ve started to realize that you have to press down much harder and farther down on your brakes to achieve a normal stopping time, this is a clear indicator that your pads have worn, requiring greater activation to make full contact with the wheel. If you start to notice any kind of screeching when you come to a stop, this could be a sign that metal is making contact with metal. If this is the case, you’ll want to Schedule an Appointment as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage!

Service

We’ll try to complete our task as quickly as possible when you pull up to our service bay. While you spend some time in a comfortable armchair, we’ll get to work elevating your ride and swapping out your pads. Since we have your vehicle on hand, we’ll also check for other common problems such as worn or misaligned tires, low oil, low batteries, and more! If we see anything that needs work, we’ll consult with you just in case you’d like to take care of multiple important tasks in a single visit.

In a blink of an eye, you could be cruising the road in a healthier, safer vehicle. Just come to McGrath Honda of St. Charles for brake pad replacement service near Downers Grove, IL. You can find us at 1411 East Main Street in St. Charles, IL.

Maxwell provided excellent service. He was very patient when I was trying to decide on which car to purchase. Nelly in finance was very proficient. I thank both for being very quick, kind hearted and being at work that day.

After several weeks of research for a used Honda CR-V, finally came across 2 at this dealer. Went in on a weekday night, was instantly greeted by the manager and he showed us over to Max. He was very nice and easy to talk to, explained a lot of our options regarding the car and financing. Didn't seem like he was trying to lowball us or make us get any "additional" things with the deal that we didn't need. We went back the next day as it was getting late to purchase the car. The paperwork did take forever, but we were able to leave with the car. Easy process for the most part, Max was really great and helpful! Would definitely recommend him if you are searching for a car at St. Charles. Even after purchasing the car (which was certified), there were a couple of things on the report that were overlooked and he told me to bring in the car, took it back in on a Saturday morning when it was really busy, and he was able to have it looked at and fixed without a problem.

Leased my second accord with them and the process was simple and easy. David K the salesman was helpful and provided valuable knowledge of the car I was buying and helped me pick out a model and trim that was similar to my previous car. The finance guy Dave was also able to work out a monthly payment that fit in my budget. I will definitely be coming back here again for my next lease or purchase.

My husband and I visited McGrath Honda of St. Charles today. After researching various cars and their reliability, we decided on a 2019 Honda CR-V EX AWD. We worked with Brian Salas and surprisingly we came out of the showroom with the car we wanted and with a good price! Brian was very cooperative and polite and really didn't try to pressure us into buying things we didn't really want or the price point. Thank you, Brian, and McGrath Honda.

I have been a loyal Honda owner for over 30 years and can honostly say that this was one of the best car buying experiences I've had! Jose was a pleasure to work with, taking the time to explain all the features on the car and knowledgably answering all my questions. Dave, the manager that helped me that day, was also very pleasant and worked hard to keep my beautiful 2020 Pilot within my budget. I really believe that I got an excellent deal. Thanks guys!

After all these years, why does buying a car take over 4 hours! We had come in previously, emails were exchanged, yet still, the day off, it took over 4 hours to finally be able to drive off the lot. It’s 2020, this process needs to be better streamlined. We shouldn’t have to skip meals to purchase a vehicle. Yes, we are happy with the vehicle, and the overall deal, but the time dedicated seems wasteful.

My husband and I had an exceptional experience yesterday. After visiting a few dealerships that failed to WOW us, we decided to go back to McGrath of St Charles where we bought before from a salesman that had retired. When Shiraz greeted us with a cheery "Welcome folks, how can I help you?" my husband said to me "We're going to buy a car here today"!!!!! Kurt J Willner was our salesman and he was amazing!!! He went above and beyond my expectations which are very high since I manage a retail store. He was professional, friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and just a delight to work with. The vibe in this location was electric as we participated in every bell that was rung. Obviously this speaks to your culture that is in place. Shiraz interacted with everyone in the showroom and showed what a great manager he is. You are so lucky to have Shiraz & Kurt. I will refer everyone I know. Keep up the amazing work.

Leased a Honda Civic for my son. The experience with the GM, Sales Associate, and Finance Manager was a no surprises experience and top notch. They made the experience a positive one and it helped that the store was super clean during this Pandemic! The sales associate was relatively new, but extremely courteous and leaned on management, but we understood that she has to start somewhere to get that experience! Like anything purchase I make, I did my research. I made sure they had the model we wanted for my son, I filled out the paperwork ahead of time, and the GM, Nate priced a lease rate that was in my son’s budget. Lastly, it was good to see diversity in the staff. They showed that they are also looking to be part of the solution to help repair society.

Service: I've had my Honda's (4 of them) serviced here for years. I trust the quality of their service and have never had to come back due to poor work. Whether I accept or decline their recommendations, they are willing to explain their recommendations and are not pushy. They are efficient. Service Advisor Mike Castro is exceptional. I find them a bit pricey, but willing to price match.

I just left Mcgrath and had the best experience. I was trying to refinance my car and they gave me numerous different options and allowed me to go the route that I was most comfortable with and worked with me above and beyond what I expected. Thank you so very much to Dave Gurtler, David Kolinen and Nelly Marchan for doing anything and everything you could to help me! Not only are those 3 great, but everybody that I've met there (buying my car, finance dept, service dept) is so friendly and helpful and great service!!!

McGrath Honda in St. Charles did a great job in taking care me and my needs. I worked with Carlos to help me find my new SUV. He did an amazing job listening to what I was looking for and gave me different options and explained everything in detail. I never felt pressured to make a decision when I first came into look. Carlos checked in to see if I had any questions and let me decide when I was ready to buy. I Love my new CR-V!! Thank you Carlos for all your help!

Had a great experience. We came there looking for a specific car that we ended up not liking. Discussed that a lease and our price point was better to lease then to buy. Extremely happy with the car, and the leasing program. They helped up to get a great deal with low interest and no money down. We worked with Zack and he was great! The manager that helped also was great. Sorry I dont remember his name :( will definitely be back for our off our services and for another car in the future. Financing process wasn't long at all!!!!
