ABS Brake Service

Why is it important?
The Brake system provides the ability to stop a vehicle efficiently and safely and therefore is a vital component of driving safely. A well maintained Brake system protects the vehicle, driver, passengers and others sharing the road. Periodic inspection of friction material, vital system components and hydraulics helps to ensure efficient system performance and cost effective repairs.
What do we do?
VC Quality® technicians begin with a thorough inspection of a vehicle’s brake linings and key components. A written evaluation, with detailed diagnoses of findings, is provided and reviewed with the customer. Service recommendations are based on the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications and the existing condition of brake components that impact system performance.
How often?
Vehicle manufacturers recommend brake inspection at regular intervals, usually every 12,000 miles, to ensure vehicle safety and cost effective repairs. Repairs are recommended based on vehicle manufacturer specifications and existing conditions for brake linings and other key components.
Please note: Not all VC Quality® service centers offer the Brake Service. Please call ahead to ensure the service is available.

Cooling System Service
Radiator Antifreeze/Coolant Service
Why is it important?
The engine cooling system in your vehicle circulates antifreeze through the engine and radiator. The antifreeze is formulated to prevent corrosion inside the cooling system and helps to maintain optimal engine operating temperature regardless of outside conditions. Replacing the antifreeze at regular intervals can help prevent overheating, freezing and premature cooling-system corrosion.
What is the service?
The old antifreeze is removed from your radiator and replaced with new antifreeze per your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
Please note: Not all VC Quality® service centers offer all Cooling System Services. Please call ahead to ensure the services are available.
A/C Evacuation and Recharge Service
The function of an air conditioner is to help remove the heat and humidity from inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Powered by a belt, the air conditioning compressor compresses the refrigerant to pressurize it and pump it through the system. The refrigerant is pushed through a valve where pressure and temperature are reduced. The now-cool refrigerant travels through the evaporator in the passenger compartment. As a result, cooled air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.
VC Quality® certified technicians will:
jl_ua_arrow visually inspect the air conditioning compressor drive belt for cracks or damage
jl_ua_arrow visually inspect accessible components for leaks or damage
jl_ua_arrow check the operation of the air conditioning compressor and other air conditioning components
jl_ua_arrow evacuate refrigerant from the system
jl_ua_arrow vacuum test the system
jl_ua_arrow recharge the air conditioning system using the appropriate refrigerant to the system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications
PLEASE NOTE: The service is designed as a periodic maintenance service rather than a detailed troubleshooting or repair service. VC Quality® technicians are certified through an EPA approved training program. VC Quality® technicians begin the service by checking for signs of leaks. We do not recommend servicing systems with detected leaks.*
