Brake Repair

Brake Repair

We provide a wide range of repair services for both import and domestic automotive brake systems at our auto repair shop in Tallmadge. Every auto mechanic at our shop knows it is important that you understand how the brake system in your car or truck plays a vital role in keeping your passengers and you safe. The components in the automotive brake system are not designed to last for the life of your vehicle and wear down over time. The pads (aka shoes) are the most common brake replacement service we do. This is because every time you depress your pedal the brake pad material wears down against the brake rotor. If the brake pads are allowed to wear down for too long the underlying metal surface of the pads will contact your brakes' metal rotors (aka drums) . This situation will not only result in an unsafe situation but will require additional service and increase your brake repair cost.

Suspension & Steering

Suspension & Steering

The suspension in your car or truck is an intricately networked series of cooperating parts that are intended to provide an even, stable, and smooth ride. The suspension system in your vehicle takes a considerable amount of road abuse you experience in Tallmadge and as such many of the suspension system's components will wear out if not even break as a result. There are many symptoms of a faulty suspension system and being aware of common warning signs can save you from having expensive repair costs, not to mention keeping your passengers and you safe when driving.

If you think you are having problems with your steering or suspension bring your car or truck to our Tallmadge shop location and let one of our trained mechanics provide you with a complete suspension system inspection and offer various service suggestions to keep your car or truck in optimal performance condition.

  • I would recommend this business

Honest, clean, polite I never wonder what is going on with my car. They keep detailed records so they know when a part is still under warranty and they take care of it. I have been going here for 10+years now and will not take my vehicles anywhere else. The lobby is so clean and large. I used to take my toddlers there and they would play with the toys in the lobby while we waited for the car. Seriously the nicest car place around.

Customer Testimonials

Wow, great customer service, best since I moved from PA three and a half years ago. I have tried six different places looking for the high standards I was use too! They did a complete check up the first time I brought my car in. They didn't try to sell me or do extra things like the places with the cheap oil change specials.
Their estimate was accurate to what they had to do. They told me the things that would need to be done in the future according to my useage. They even offered to take me home and return the car because I didn't have another vehicle available.

First of all I am not a regular customer, but I will be, second of all I'm not a friend, but I will be‼️ I had the best car care experience, I looked on google for a hybrid specialist in my area and Christopher's was the only place outside a dealership near me and I had bad experiences with dealerships so I said I will give this place a shot and I'm glad I did. Dan went way over and above and thought outside of the box to fix my car and was honest with me and they are affordable. Hybrids are not cheap if you have an issue, and Dan was able to come up with a plan to fix my car for way cheaper.

It's also the small things giving your customers respect, and didn't make me feel like as a paying customer was putting them out. I felt they explained what was wrong with my car and how they fixed it thoroughly and answered my questions in a respectful way. My car sat for six mos. so I had not just the one major issue to fix I had little issues that I wasn't paying attention but Dan was, i had my car towed there and didn't have current plates on my car, and he was kind enough to put my 30 day tag on and remove and properly dispose of my old plates so I can be on my way.

Thank you Dan I'm usually sad and unhappy going to see a car Doctor, but that wasn't the case here THANK YOU and I will be back for any hybrid needs or regular car maintenance.

As always expected, Christopher's Car Care provides professional top notch quality service. The estimate for proposed work was exactly what the bill was. A call from Dave explaining what was done when it was time to pick up the vehicle was very helpful.

As a long time customer who has had a number of vehicles serviced at Christopher's, I would recommend them for any job, large or small. Their courteousness, knowledge, follow-through, quality of work, and integrity are all top-notch.

I have taken all of my cars to Christopher's for years because I am provided with honest, superior service. I wouldn't take my vehicles anywhere else. I have relied on Dave and his team to evaluate potential used car purchases and regularly refer family and friends. I trust them completely!

Nothing but the best service every time. Very trustworthy company, never estimating more than need be. Impeccable service, friendly staff, a tremendous place to get your work done on your car. I'll never go anywhere else!

After an already awful morning I realized I had a flat, spent over an hour trying to work my RUSTED together emergency car Jack, finally got it, and then couldn't kick the tire loose. Then instead of My guy friend trying to kick it loose he said oh just drive it on the flat to get it fixed, so he undid all my work I did then left! Almost in tears at this point and needing to get home to Cleveland, I happened upon Christopher's car care and my whole day turned around. They were so nice and friendly, joking around while they got me back on the road in no time! I hope I break down in Akron again!

We are in our second year of servicing our cars at Christopher's. The staff is friendly and the work is done reliably and timely. Always up front and above board. Our cars are thoroughly checked and repaired at a fair price. We are confident our cars are in good hands.
