At Franklin Auto Service, we want our Franklin customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle.

Give us a call at 248-626-2080, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Franklin Auto Service offers.
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 Franklin Auto Service 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 Franklin Auto Service 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 Franklin Auto Service as soon as possible.
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. Franklin Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

What People Say About Us
I was a first time customer and had a great experience. They called me the day I towed my car there and told me what was wrong and how much it would be to fix it. (Needed a new ignition switch). My repairs took a little longer than expected and they were more than accommodating and even gave me a discount. They were honest and genuine with me over the phone and in person. 10/10 would recommend!
Very professional and took the time to answer my questions as well as demonstrated the repairs that were completed.
These guys are great. Super friendly, professional, knowledgeable, share information and answer questions till you are satisfied. It's just a 3 guy shop, but I was impressed with how fast they turned my car around, and I'm happy with how well it's running again.
Seriously the best service at a auto service center that I have ever had. Prompt professional and helped me out in a jam without blinking an eye. I would recommend them for any automotive work whatsoever.
Very polite and honest. Great service. Plan to use again if have any future car problems.
Absolutely excellent experience. Called last minute for an oil change and they fit me in. The owners are super kind and honest. This was my first time here and I'll definitely be back! Wonderful! Thank you
