At Hall's Automotive, we want our Tucson 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 520-790-1885, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Hall's Automotive 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.
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. Hall's Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
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 Hall's Automotive as soon as possible.
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 Hall's Automotive 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 Hall's Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Larry is the most honest,trustworthy, knowledge mechanic in Tucson and is always fair on price! If you've been looking for a mechanic give him a try you won't be disappointed!!!!
Very good shop. Nice people. And they do good work FAST, even though they were super busy they got me in and out of there. Larry's shop, Halls automotive, is hidden away in the cut but I would definitely use this shop again. I recommend that my people with car trouble now or in the future check them out.
At Halls Automotive you can trust not only the quality parts, but also the prompt service they give. My family as well as myself have trusted Halls with Our vehicles and Our lives for over 15 years. Julie, Larry's Daughter is very professional and will handle help you with most questions. Thanks, Larry, Julie, and Joe for all you do for Tucson!!!
I brought in my 2000 Volvo v40 and they knew exactly what to do with it. They fixed it up in no time and it was excellent customer service and kept me updated. Highly recommend this shop they did a fantastic job at fixing my problems on the car!!!
I've taken my truck to them a couple of times now and have had a really good experience. They're very responsible with the price, they have many years of experience and are very professional. I will be a lifetime customer.
WOW. MY TRUCK RUNS SO WELL! The service was excellent! I was preparing my truck for my 16 year old and wanted her to drive a problem free vehicle. I was lazy and didn't maintain my truck very well. Hall's Automotive did so good at fixing it up that I have them do all my work now. You will get a fair price. You won't be sorry.
Where to start, I came to Larry with a nightmare of a project. I need a complete engine rebuild, clutch, steering rack, transfer case, rotors, brakes pretty much if was on the car it needed to be replaced. The car had sat for two years and basically was a shell of broken dreams. Larry and his incredibly friendly and efficient staff too the project and quoted me a time and date sure enough they delivered. This job was not for the feint-of-heart. Hall's Automotive definitely made a life time customer and will have my business from now on. I HIGHLY recommend this shop from projects large to small.
Honest, kind mechanic. Trustworthy and decent with appropriate prices. Not the cheapest but someone you can use again and again.
I definitely recommend this shop. Great service! I was able to get an appointment right away, they fixed my car in one day, and with a great price.
I was referred to Larry by the shop (BrakeMax on Pantano) that I take my mid 60's Corvette to for oil changes. I needed help with tune-up and minor repair work. Finding a auto repair shop that works on old cars isn't easy. Larry took care of all the issues the old car had, as well as giving the old car a mechanical look over. I highly recommend Hall's Auto for your car needs.
I would recommend Halls automotive to everyone. Larry did such an amazing job fixing the engine of my truck and at such a reasonable price too. I only go to Halls, even for simple maintenance checkups.
While passing through Tucson, my car (a 2003 Crown Vic) began making a horrible noise that made me halt my trip home to the Northwest in fear of breaking down in the desert. After explaining all that, Larry agreed to see me as soon as I came in. We hopped in the car and he diagnosed the issue immediately and had me ready to go promptly. I didn't actually need a repair (non-essential ac component I didn't care about in my hurried trip home) and he let me go FOR FREE with peace of mind after explaining everything in great detail. I suppose my only complaint is that I can't find such an honest mechanic in Oregon. I only hope that you, the review reader decide to trust halls with your repairs.
Was passing through Tuscon on way to San Diego and my axle bearing broke. I googled a mechanic near me. Called Halls automotive and Larry was able to provide a little bit of insight on what to do. He even suggest a tow company in which he trusts. The tow was very reasonable. Once the car got it into his shop he was able to take a look at it, give me an estimate and fixed within a day and a half. Larry even updated me on what exactly he was doing and why. One of his mechanics even gave me and my 3 year old a ride to the hotel. Larry didn't just "FIX" the broken part (which I think the last mechanic did) he brought parts in from different places and chose the best one for my dollar. After everything was fixed, Larry assured me i wouldn't have this problem again. I 100% trust he did a amazing job and in a reasonable amount of time also. Thank you Halls Automotive!
