BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, Epic Automotive can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 314-423-0011 or visit us in Saint Louis and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!

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. Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic 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 Epic Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

What People Say About Us


  • -Thelma A.

    This was my first time having my vehicle serviced at Epic Automotive... The service was superb... and very professional.. If my vehicle is in need of service in the future I will be returning to Epic Automotive.


  • -Justin W.

    In case anyone was thinking of another establishment to trust your car with, don't! Epic not only is the only place my entire family takes their vehicles, but the only place any of my friends do as well!I could go on for hours where John has dropped what he was doing to ensure that I came first. Do not waste your time with anyone else.. Epic is the only home you need to know for your car!


  • -Amy H.

    Great service. Great price. Great people. Highly recommended!


  • -Amber C.

    Would definitely recommend Epic Automotive. Very friendly and has always done great work on my car.


  • -Mr. Porter

    I have no complaints whatsoever. The staff was respectful, friendly, and down to earth. The facility is pretty clean and the service was great. It's refreshing to find a place that actually fixes the problem instead of selling you stuff that you probably won't need just so they can make a few bucks off of you. I drove from Granite City, IL to check them out and it was worth the drive. I'll definitely be coming back if I need anything done to my car stereo.


  • -Toney W.

THANK YOU EPIC TEAM!! ....


  • -Kris L.

    I took my Explorer in to Epic last week to have the seat heater replaced in the drivers seat on a recommendation from co-workers. The shop was surprisingly neat and clean and made me trust them even more. Also when the actual repair took longer than originally thought they still cut me a deal on the labor rate to earn my continued business.


  • -Lawrence M.

    Called around for AC service prices. They have the best deal in town! Great guys and good service!


  • -Veronica S.

    Professional, Knowledgeable, Fair, Friendly, Fast Service. They got my car done that same day and didn't charge me an arm and a leg. And the shop looks great! Makes you feel like you've walked into the right place. I will definitely be going back to Epic for more repairs on my car.


  • -Remington V.

    These are honest mechanics. Have taken my car here exclusively for the last two and a half years. They have always been willing to answer any questions I had about the function of a part, whether I actually needed it, and whether it was still under warranty from past work they had done.


  • -Kathi C.

    Amazing integrity. I took my car in & asked John to fix the windows & a tail light. All 4 of my power-windows had, at some point, quit working, and started working again; they were taking turns & when it came to the driver's window not working, I'd had enough. But, once the tail light was replaced, the windows were all working. So, he DIDN'T run the $100 diagnostic on a problem that no longer existed. Windows are still working great, several months later. That was the 3rd time John had gone out of his way (and reduced his income) to save me money, and provide honest service. This is now my auto-repair-shop for life.
