BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Bayside Auto Works, we want our Spring Hill customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 352-556-5255, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Bayside Auto Works offers.

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.

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. Bayside Auto Works will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

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 Bayside Auto Works as soon as possible.

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 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 Bayside Auto Works about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 Bayside Auto Works where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Testimonials

  • When visiting family and friends in Spring Hill my car started having some serious issues. Knowing that I had well over 1,000 miles to get it back home to Ohio, I had to have it repaired. Worried that because I was from out of town that I would possibly have problems. I went to Bayside on the recommendation of a family member in Spring Hill. Greg and his staff looked the car over, found the problem and fixed it. The car runs great, and they did not overinflate the charges like I have had done to me before. I drove the car home, there were NO problems, the work was quality work and Greg and his staff are simply awesome! THANK YOU~

  • Very impressed with the service. They are very friendly and professional. I am familiar with vehicle repair and they took me to the repair area and showed everything that needed attention and it was right on. They got my 2004 Taurus with 175k miles on it running and most important stopping like new. Highly recommended.

  • I don't normally write reviews, but I felt I had to write one for this business. Overall, my experience there was a pleasure...from Karen, the receptionist to the owner who was always available to answer questions . My car had some A/C problems and was diagnosed and fixed and I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg. They have a new customer now...I will trust them to make repairs at a fair price...all they while being courteous and professional.
    -Andrea, Spring Hill

  • I recently moved to this area and was very pleased to find a place with such great service. Everything was fixed to perfection. I found the prices to be very fair. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. A five star business in my opinion.

  • I kept hearing about Bayside Auto Works from 99.9 radio that I always listen to. I needed my car checked and an oil change. They were courteous, professional, even rotated my tires, replaced my lights in my tag that were our all for a very reasonable price. I will refer others to Bayside and be doing business with them from now on. You just don't find businesses and auto care services like this anymore. Thanks Bayside.
    -Meg, Spring Hill

  • Very impressed with how business is conducted here. I've been in Florida for 21 years and have had some bad experiences with auto repair shops but not this one. They earned my business in the future.

    -Cory, Spring Hill

  • After recently realizing I spent the past few years being taken across town by a shady mechanic, I was happy to end up at Bayside. My car is used 95% for work so keeping it in top shape is very important to me. Greg and his staff were honest, prompt, and reasonable. I look forward to my next visit. I highly recommend!

  • What I like most about bayside auto works is that you get that old fashioned feel where it truly is a small business catering to the community and most important of all they never try to upsell you! you go in for what you need and that's that!!
    -Pete, Spring Hill

  • One of the best automotive repair experiences I've ever had and I've been into cars since the 60s. Well worth the 30 min drive. Finally found a shop I can trust. Greg knows his cars... all cars, and has a strong desire to treat people right. He repaired my wife's Bimmer for much less than all the other quotes received from other german repair shops and he completed the job as quoted and faster than expected. Doesn't matter what you drive, if it needs attention, take it to Greg. I'd recommend anyone to Greg - their stress and anxiety about dealing with repair shops will cease to exist. I'm taking my Sonata to Bayside too.
    -Mark, Odessa

  • The best place on the planet to have anything done to any vehicle. Courteous, professional. And the price is right.
    -Troy, Spring Hill

  • am very pleased with the work your mechanics have done. It is nice to know that there is an automotive shop that cares about its customers, and not out to gouge us. I will definitely recommend you to anyone that asks for a reputable shop. Thank you, and have a prosperous new year.
    -Jeff, Spring Hill
