BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, Griffith Automotive Repair can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 520-807-2886 or visit us in Tucson and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!

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 Griffith Automotive Repair 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 Griffith Automotive Repair about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
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.

Caliper Replacement
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 Griffith Automotive Repair as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
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. Griffith Automotive Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    Coolant leak in my BMW. They did a full pressure test to make sure everything was good. Radiator cap was the only thing bad. Very happy to have issue resolved for just the price of a cap. They took card of me without charging for labor. Will be back.

    The work was excellent and fast. Like how professional the staff was. The lobby was clean and loved the 50's car shop mural on the wall. Pretty good prices for the work they offer.

    I took my 2002 Nissan Altima to a local tire shop for routine balance and rotation. At the tire shop they let me know that my tires were wearing out irregularly and they told me to check the alignment. They recommended Griffith Automotive and right away I made an appointment for the following week for an alignment. As soon as I arrived at Griffith Automotive Mark greeted me and told me that they would check the alignment and let me know what they found. The automotive experts found that my alignment was off because of the tie rod ends, they took me out to the shop and showed me exactly what the issue was. They also discovered that my struts would need to be replaced as soon as possible so that I would not have any alignment problems in the future. Mark gave me the estimate and it was very reasonable so I decided to have all the front end work done the following week. Sure enough my car was repaired in a timely manner and it rides like new again. I highly recommend Griffith Automotive to anyone who is looking for top notch automotive repair at a very reasonable price. I appreciate Mark's transparency and honesty. Griffith Automotive is the only place where I will get all my front end and suspension worked on. Thank you!

    Honest, Knowledgeable, Excellent!! Customer service is A+++. If there was a rating above 5 stars, I would give that! Last year another business recommended that I go to Griffith Automotive for an alignment. They aligned my car & it was excellently done. Last week, I had a quick oil change at a place near my apt. They had my oil change records, did a quick inspection & gave me a list of repairs. Because I was so positively impressed with Griffith Auto, I told them what the repair list said. They told me to bring my car in & they would give me a free inspection to make sure that my car needed that particular work & parts. They agreed that the timing belt needed replacing bc it was very old. My car had also been making a squeaking sound (maybe belts) & something felt loose under the hood. When Griffith Auto changed the timing belt, they noticed that the motor had old bolts thereby making the motor loose. Other parts & the belts needed tightened. I would've lost my engine & car. Griffith Automotive not only did an excellent job on replacing my car's timing belt, they also tightened the loose parts in my car at no additional charge. They were less expensive than the other quote and they told me I didn't need a couple of parts the oil change business had said I should get. Griffith Auto inspected & gave me a list of the work that would need to be done in the future (I have an older car), & let me know the order of importance of the maintenance I needed. I can definitely say that I will be having them service my car. They won me as a customer with their friendly & knowledgeable staff. They're honest & fair. They are very experienced & professional. They care about their customers. They guarantee their work & gave a lifetime warranty on the parts. I highly recommend Griffith Automotive Repair Service. They're worth more than 5 stars!!!

    In my initial communication with Tony and Mark they were both very helpful and asked me to come by so they could have a better understanding of my needs. Mark was very quick to discover and present a far better option and far more cost effective that what I had previously encountered. Upon scheduling for completion of the install, I threw a wrench in the works with replacing my side mirrors and it turned out that the ones I provided needed all kinds of additional parts. Mark went the extra mile in getting what was need and making it happen! In addition they worked within some crazy conflicts on my schedule, got the job completed in the time line needed, did both jobs at a great price and did the job with a smile It was a pleasure doing business with you and you will be my "go to guys" for any automotive needs or questions. Thank you!

    Just got my car fixed. My electronic throttle went out and I couldn't drive it safely. It was quick and they made sure to keep me in the loop as they went through it. It was all taken care of in one day. The rates were great and I couldn't be more impressed with the care they showed. I will definitely be back.

    Good place to go to get your car serviced. Thank you Tony for caring about your customers and taking care of their vehicles. It is very rare to find a shop that I can trust to do the job right and in a timely manner. It is also hard to find a place that will brake down the problems to you about your vehicle and is honest. Competitive pricing and affordable. Definitely have my business for future automotive needs. Thank you.

    Really upfront, nice people. They explained to my satisfaction what was wrong with my transmission, gave me a fair price, I was in-and-out quick. I was referred there by a friend who recommended their services. Good shop! They're busy so you'll have to schedule things a few days in advance, but that's proof of their quality.

    I had front end problems on my 2001 Dodge Ram pickup. The guys at Griffith diagnosed the problem, explained everything to me and expertly fixed it for a fair price. Everyone was competent and friendly. I enthusiastically recommend them for any automotive repair!!

    I have a 2019 370Z that I lowered. The car looked great after I lowered it but being that I am not a professional mechanic and don't have the equipment to do the alignment, my alignment was horrible. I could have made a lot of adjustments myself to make it better but I was frustrated and out of time since this is the vehicle I use to get to work. The fact that I work on my cars gives me at the very least the knowledge to know when an automotive shop is being dishonest. I took it to another shop and the lies came rolling in. I then took it to Firestone and they wouldn't touch it because of the aftermarket parts that I put on the vehicle. I talked to Tony on the phone and he told me what the car needed in order to fix the alignment. I knew he was being honest because I knew what it was going to take to do the repairs I just didn't want to do them and didn't have the proper equipment. I also voiced some concerns that I had and asked him if he could check my work. They tightened one of the components to spec that I failed to tighten all of the way and adjusted the dust shield on my rotor so it would stop making the grinding noise. They told me that in order to have the suspension running properly they would have to adjust the camber arms and ride height. They gave me an honest quote and the amount of work they said they had to do matched the time (money) they said it would require them to get the suspension dialed in. I was also able to talk to the technicians and they were nice guys and willing to talk to me about my suspension and heard me out when I told them what I wanted. You can tell when people HATE their jobs. These guys must get treated well at Griffith automotive and it shows, they seem to be in a good mood and very helpful. I'm sure the owner knows this but Tony and the technicians are worth keeping around. These guys will make your business stay around for the long haul. Being that I'm a car guy I have dealt with many dishonest shops and mechanics. Tony's also carries himself like he loves his job, the guy has great communication skills and is definitely a people person. So if you want an honest shop with great honest employees this is the shop to go to for quality work. Your employees are what makes your shop what it is. Thank you Griffith auto.

    By far the best shop I have ever been to! The staff are very professional and awesome to work with. I had complications with the engine I bought for my vehicle and they helped me every step of the way. Mark and Toni helped me with everything! They fought for me tooth and nail. They made sure my engine was covered under the warranty I had. Given all the things that I had going in my life, they handled everything. If I could give them more stars I would. I recommend them to my friends and family! They were more than fair when it came to price. There were some other issues with my truck and they addressed them to me and fixed them. Amazing shop! 10/10 stars! They went above all my expectations and standards!

    I met Mark and Tony yesterday. I learned about this shop from Raul at Discount Tire Store. Tony explained how my car would be evaluated regarding the condition of all front suspension parts. That helped to determine if anything needed attention before doing an alignment. I was pleased that the owner Mark spent some time with me and I'm happy with the results. I will be back and I recommend them without hesitation.

    Mark and Jeff are the best! They treat my truck like it was theirs. They always recommend the best solutions when needed and have the best prices in town. They treat you like family and they never suggest things that are not necessary like other auto shops. I highly recommend them.

    Good shop. Resolved 4 wheel alignment issues that kept shredding tires. My vehicle was a difficult case, out of spec from factory. Now MPGs are up, road noise is down, and she doesn't feel out of control every time it rains.

    Wow what service! I came to this place per recommendation from discount tire and so happy I did. Mark, the owner, was professional, friendly, and explained to me how often I should do tire rotation/alignment check etc. I was in and out in half an hour w/ appointment. Highly recommend using this garage for any of your needs!! I'll be back.
