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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto 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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto 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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto as soon as possible.

What People Say About Us
They keep my old beat up car running, I can afford their rates, they've always gotten it turned around in time so I've never missed work, and they stood behind their warranty when I needed an adjustment.
They are like family takes great care of me. Referred many family and friends who are taken very well care of. I can be out and talk about cars and I meet a stranger who recommends Marvs to me and I smile because all my vehicles there.
I have a hard time believing some of these one-star ratings are talking about the same place that I'm thinking of. Marv's is FANTASTIC and full of great people who want to do anything they can to please the customer. Sometimes they even vacuum or wash my car for free if they have a few minutes of time on their hands (which is rare)! I love this place and have referred tens of hundreds of people to them!
