Talk To Catalano Automotive Repair About High-Performance Brake Service Upgrades:

Metal Brake Pads: Performance-driven drivers prefer the metallic brake pads because they tolerate a much wider range of temperatures and track conditions. Metal brake pads are excellent conductors of heat making them able to withstand more heat without debonding while also cooling back down rapidly.

Line Locks: Love a good smokey burnout? Let your rear wheels spin aggressively without wasting your rear brake pads. Get your line lock installed by the auto repair experts at Catalano Automotive Repair in Needham. Allow your front brakes to lock independently of the rear brakes with just the flip of a simple switch.

Brake Booster: Get a master cylinder on steroids by adding a brake booster installed by the expert mechanics at Catalano Automotive Repair. Reduce the amount of pedal pressure needed for braking with higher hydraulic pressure and lower force applied on the brake pedal.

Drum to Disc Conversion: You love your classic car but let's face it, those old drums make stopping hazardous. For restoration enthusiasts, the mechanics at Catalano Automotive Repair specialize in 15-inch wheel drum to disc conversion that maintains the original manufacturer aesthetics. Get a complete brake system that includes 11-inch drilled and slotted rotors, single-piston cast calipers, stock or drop spindles, and a master cylinder with brake booster when you do your drum to disc conversion at Catalano Automotive Repair.

Testimonials

  • John and his staff are always amazing! We've brought our cars here a few times and every time it's worked out very well. I had an issue once and the larger National chains were telling me I needed several things done and it was going to cost quite a bit. John checked the car out and said I didn't need half the work that they quoted. Honest, knowledgeable, fairly priced and is willing to explain the problem in a way you will understand if you don't happen to be proficient yourself in auto mechanics. No one wants their car in need of a repair but if you do, this is the place to come!

  • Can not say enough about John and his work- honest, straightforward and priced fairly. I recently had my brakes checked and an oil change and he not only did flawless work at a great price, he even brought my car to my house (I live nearby)! Looks like I have found a great repair shop. If you're even thinking about bringing your car to John, I would not hesitate for a second. Great guy and great experience. You won't be sorry.

  • A great garage with quick assessment and personable service. John was able to replace my grinding breaks within 24 hours at a fair price. Even tolerated me clumsily dropping pens in the office. Keep up the good work!

  • John was recommended to me by two of my colleagues at work, and I can see why. John took great care of me and was able to get my car troubles taken care of quickly. His pricing was incredibly fair and my family will be going to him with any future car issues.
