A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features,
and we want to make sure that America Auto Service & Body Shop customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads
are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not
comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 773-804-9040 or
visit us in Chicago and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's
safety and reliability.
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 America Auto Service & Body Shop 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 America Auto Service & Body Shop 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 America Auto Service & Body Shop 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. America Auto Service & Body Shop will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

This place is great! They did a wonderful job & returned my car promptly. They were very straight forward about the work that needed to be done on my car, and didn't push extra projects. I will definitely be back!
We have trusted this shop for years. They are great & have become our friends.
I've used America Auto Service countless times since I wrote my first review. Never a single issue, always happy and always priced right. Highly recommended!
I can't say enough about America Auto. Octavio and his team have been servicing my vehicles for over a decade, and I have consistently been impressed with the prices, the quality of the work, the prompt attention, and above all the HONESTY of the work. Octavio has a total enthusiasm for what he is doing for your car, and he shares that with you as the customer! Many times I have left his shop with a new education in how my vehicle works. You will always see the old part and the new part, with a thorough explanation on what was wrong and why. Very highly recommended!!
I am more than pleased with the service provided me by America Auto Service. Octavio and his team did a great job on my car which has a lot of issues. They explained me what exactly was the problem and finished everything very quickly and professional. Totally recommend!
I highly recommed this shop. Since the day I first arrived, it was great customer service. My car was involved in a car accident on Sept 03rd and before I decided to go with America Auto Service & Body Shop, I searched 2 other shops around the area that did not provide good customer service at all. They where more worried if the insurance was going to pay for the services or not. America Auto Service & Body Shop truly did a very good job with the repairs on my car. My car looks brand new and its a 2010 Honda Civic. I am satified 100% and if I ever need their services, i will come back without any doubt. Try them, you wont regret it.
