Austin’s Automotive Specialists is a family owned and operated automotive shop. We opened our doors in 1979, and since then have expanded to 10 locations—including our North Austin shop at 1607 West Parmer Ln. We are all full-service shop, who specializes in rotor matching and brake repairs. Call or walk-in anytime. We are even open on Saturdays!
Is It Time For A Brake Inspection?
If you have purchased a used vehicle, or simply can’t recall the last time your brakes were inspected or repaired, stop by any of our shops for a free inspection and quote. On average, you will need your brakes replaced every 50,00 miles—but this mileage estimate is not set in stone. Your professional fleets may need more frequent brake maintenance, or if you drive in lots of stop and go traffic, your brakes may wear sooner. If you aren’t sure, stop by, and we will perform a free inspection.
Signs You Need To Stop In ASAP
You know your vehicle better than anyone else, so you must keep your eyes and ears open for any changes. Changes can occur gradually, so you must pay close attention. When speaking of your brakes, here’s what you need to be on the lookout for:
- Listen for grinding, squealing, or clicking when you brake.
- Feel if your brakes vibrate, pulse, or if your car pulls to one side when you brake.
- Be mindful of whether it takes longer to brake than feels safe, or longer than it used to.
We Are A Full Service Auto Shop
When we opened our doors in 1979, we wanted to highlight our specialized focus—which is why we began with the name Brake Specialists. While brakes remain our specialty, we are an all-inclusive auto shop—which is why we changed our name in 2014 to Austin’s Automotive Specialists. We service all makes and models, including hybrids, new cars, used cars, and full-fleet maintenance. We back our work with a 12 month, 24K miles warranty—and offer NAPA And CFS financing for major repairs. Tires sales, emissions testing, and state inspections are only available in select locations.
We Provide Transportation!
If you only need a quick repair or inspection, you can pop into our waiting room where there are free coffee and Wi-Fi. For all-day repairs, we provide a loaner car, free shuttle, or after hours drop-off and pick-up. Give us a call today at (512) 834-0604 or stop by 1607 West Parmer Lane!
