Reliable Repair & Service -- Austin’s Automotive Specialists

Austin’s Automotive Specialists is an all-inclusive auto shop who specializes in brake repairs. Safe driving requires ongoing maintenance and repairs, including new brakes every 50,000 miles or so. We have 10 shops, including our North Austin shop at 8405 Research Blvd. Walk-in or call ahead to schedule a brake inspection or repair.

How Often Should You Have Your Brakes Inspected?

If you brake hard, drive long distances, or frequently drive in stop and go traffic—you may need to have your brakes replaced sooner than your owner’s manual suggests. Don’t forget that you can always ask a member of our team to inspect your rotors and pads during any of your scheduled maintenance, or stop by for a free inspection. If you can’t recall the last time your brakes were services, or you have purchased a used vehicle—an inspection is always a good idea.

Are Your Brakes Compromised?

Your brakes play the vital role of keeping you, your family, or your fleet safe on the road. Even if you have plenty of miles left before an estimated repair, it is important to be on the lookout for signs that your brakes might be compromised. If you experience any of the sounds or reactions below, stop by our shop as soon as possible:

  • Grinding metal or squealing when you brake.
  • A pulsing or vibrating feeling when you press on your brake pedal.
  • It takes longer to brake than it used to.

We Don’t Just Do Brakes!

Austin’s Automotive Specialists opened our doors in 1979, under our original name Brake Specialists. While we specialize in brakes, we are an all-inclusive shop—which is why we changed our name in 2014. We have grown to 10 locations in the Austin area, but we are still family owned and operated. We service all makes and models, including new, used, hybrid, and diesel. We guarantee our work with a 12 month, 24K miles warranty.
