BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that G.B.E. Performance Automotive 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 409-762-7551 or visit us in Galveston and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.

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. G.B.E. Performance 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 G.B.E. Performance 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 G.B.E. Performance 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 G.B.E. Performance Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

What People Say About Us


  • -Benton S.

    Took our Jeep Liberty to GBE for an oil leak. Turns out there was no oil leak, the oil filter was just not screwed on tight enough. They tightened the oil filter NO CHARGE!!! Other work I've had done was timely and at a fair price.

    We had the low tire pressure light come on today, so we stopped in to have them check it out. We had a nail reMoved from one tire, and replaced the two back ones before we made our trip here, so we needed to get it checked out. One of the guys working came out to greet us and after I told him the story, he had us pull in to a stall. He checked the pressure in all 4 and one was a little low. He explained that even only being 3# low would trigger the the light. He aired us up and said "don't worry about it" when I offered to pay him. These guys had a very clean shop, and whenever I'm back down this way, I'll be going to them for any repair work

    I've used GBE for several years. These guys are always honest and helpful. I have never had one issue with this shop. Most importantly, quote matched my final price and repair was done in a timely manner . When I picked my vehicle up one of the guys informed me that I really needed to take my car in for my air bag recall. He explained to me some things he had witnessed with faulty airbags. I made that appointment next!! It's nice that people go out of their way to point you in the right direction. I've had , oil changes, inspections, oxygen sensor replaced, ac compressor and starter all replaced with GBE. Prices are always fair. Support a local business! !

    I purchased a Diablo Sport Intune Programmer from here. They also tuned it to my 2013 Chrysler 300s 5.7 Hemi really unlocking it's true power, while also giving me great customer service. Will recommend to others!


  • -Amanda B.

    Fixed my car super fast, price was what was quoted, and the staff were honest and helpful. I would defiantly use them again.


  • -Kenneth P.

    Every single time I have brought my or my wife's vehicle here, they fixed whatever the problem was and never once tried to overcharge or overfix a thing. This places has always treated me with complete respect and this is the only place that I trust my wife will be able to drop off a vehicle and be treated with the utmost respect on the island. I am happy to have found this mechanic.


  • -Shane S.

    Best service. This is now my go to mechanic!!!


  • -Josh B.

    The guys here were great. I had to drop my car off because I had car trouble on my way to the hospital. They were able to get it back to me the next day. The price was also good as it compared favorably with what others had paid on line. The guys here seem to do good work, charge a fair price, and run an all around good business.
