Brakes are one of the most important car safety features, but they don’t always get the attention they need. Every time you hit your brakes, they suffer wear and tear which eventually leads to loss of control and brake failure.
Other safety features like airbags only reduce the severity of an accident. Making sure your brakes are working properly is the best way to prevent collisions altogether. Proper brake maintenance can be the difference between a devastating accident and a safe emergency stop.
That’s why regular professional brake servicing and repairs are so important. As local Bundaberg mechanics, we’ve seen many accidents occur when brakes aren’t maintained properly. Poor braking performance or uneven braking reduces driver control right when you need it the most.
The good news is that these problems are preventable. At Shift Automotive, our team’s top priority is keeping you and your family safe on the road. That’s why we offer state-of-the-art brake testing, repairs and servicing here in our Bundaberg workshop.
We are a locally owned and operated business dedicated to the community. Whether you need brake repairs for your family car, 4×4, performance vehicle or van, you can count on the experienced mechanics at Shift Automotive.
Whether you’re having brake trouble or just want to be certain they’re in top condition, Shift Automotive can help. Call us today to book a brake service or repair with one of our capable mechanics.Contact Us
Brake Repairs Bundaberg
Brake repairs are one of the most urgent issues to address for your vehicle. If your brakes are worn or damaged in any way, it’s essential to get them repaired as soon as possible.
Damaged or worn brakes can lead to loss of control and collisions and add stress to your tires. Some of the most common signs that you need brake repairs are:

- Brake fluid leaks
- Your car drifting to one side when braking
- Burning smells coming from your car
If you have any of these issues with your vehicle it’s essential to call a Bundeberg mechanic to diagnose the issue right away. Faulty brakes mean your car is dangerous to drive.

Brake Testing Bundaberg
Even if your vehicle’s brakes seem to be working well, it’s hard to know if they’re really up to scratch. During a brake test, Shift Automotive’s expert mechanics ensure that your brakes will work properly when you need them most.
Brake testing is vital in keeping your family safe and should be done every six months. However, most mechanics still use outdated brake testing technology. Research shows that traditional roller brake testing doesn’t give enough information to make sure your vehicle is safe on the road.
