A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features,
and we want to make sure that Dennis Mitchell's Automotive customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads
are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not
comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 731-424-1486 or
visit us in Jackson and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's
safety and reliability.
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 Dennis Mitchell's Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
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 Dennis Mitchell's Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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.
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 Dennis Mitchell's Automotive as soon as possible.
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. Dennis Mitchell's Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
What People Say About Us
I sure do appreciate Dennis Mitchell Automotive. They are fair, honest and on time. Great work yall!
I had a problem with a misdiagnosis and paying for repairs that I didn't need. As soon as Dennis Mitchell found out I was not satisfied he personally called me at home and offered to refund a portion of the cost of the repairs. In the end it worked out. Thank you for taking a personal interest in my problem and making it right.
These guys were great. I had some power steering trouble while visiting Jackson and needed it fixed quick so I could get back home. They got it done by noon that day. Thanks to the Dennis Mitchell team.
I just had 4 new Michelin tires put on my 2017 RAM. The alignment and balancing is just perfect and the truck rides like new. Thank you.
There are not many I trust the health of my vehicles with. Dennis Mitchell and his entire staff are a class act. Very friendly, easy to work with and very efficient with your time. Thank you guys for taking care of my personal vehicle as well as the vehicles we send you from our dealership!
Dennis Mitchell 's is where I take "Barney" (the Mayberry Squad Car) for any mechanical work that I need. They always do excellent work in a timely manner.
One day before I was going to enter a parade my car was running hot. They stayed over a couple of hours to repair the radiator so I could make the parade the next morning. I have to say there is a lot of 'Mayberry' friendliness at Dennis Mitchell's !
