Abbotts Auto Care: Bidding Adieu to Brake Woes in Your Subaru Outback

Hey there, fellow road enthusiasts! Today, we're delving into a common problem that can turn your smooth drive into a shaky experience when you hit the brakes in your reliable Subaru Outback 2018 BS, equipped with the 2.5L FB25A engine. Abbotts Auto Care is your compass to guide you through the importance of regular servicing to keep your journey hassle-free.

Shake, Rattle, and Roll – But Not the Good Kind

You're cruising down the road, wind in your hair, and then it happens. As you gently apply the brakes, the front of your vehicle starts to tremble and shake – not the kind of dance moves you had in mind, right? This unsettling experience is not just annoying; it can affect your safety on the road.

A valued customer recently sought help from Abbotts Auto Care when they faced this very issue with their Subaru Outback 2018. They wanted to put an end to the unnerving brake-induced vibrations.

The Mechanics of a Solution

Our dedicated team of auto experts at Abbotts Auto Care wasted no time. We hoisted the vehicle and removed the front wheels to get a closer look at the brakes. What we found was not surprising but certainly needed attention – the brake pads and discs had worn down below the recommended size. This wear and tear were the culprits behind the shake and rattle.

The Cure: Out with the Old, In with the New

With the diagnosis complete, we knew what had to be done. We replaced the old, worn-out brake pads and discs with brand new ones. Additionally, we ensured the calliper slides were well-lubricated to avoid future issues. After reassembling the brakes, we hit the road for a test drive. As the new brakes 'bedded in,' the vibrations became a thing of the past.

The Power of Regular Servicing

This story isn't just about solving a problem – it's about preventing one. Regular servicing is the secret sauce that ensures your vehicle's components are in their prime. By catching issues early, you save yourself from the inconvenience and cost of unexpected repairs.

In the case of our Subaru Outback owner, regular servicing kept those brake-induced vibrations at bay. Abbotts Auto Care isn't just about fixing what's broken; it's about enhancing your driving experience and ensuring your safety.
