At Landmark Auto Group, we want our Alexandria customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 703-751-6000, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Landmark Auto Group offers.
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 Landmark Auto Group where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
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 Landmark Auto Group about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 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.
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 Landmark Auto Group as soon as possible.
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. Landmark Auto Group will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Max the owner is amazing!! I feel like every time I go there it's like having your dad look at your car you know that you're going to get a truthful and honest diagnostic and actual care of your car. His work and labor is very reasonable in comparison to most luxury Auto repair shops in the northern Virginia market and they're always trying to give you options and alternatives to providing the most effective cost based on your budget giving you both a high option and low option of materials work and labor shows the good genuine honest loyal business trade and sportsmanship that Max puts into his business. I've been to a lot of shops in the area including their sister shop in Springfield which is just as amazing in the aspect of the work but just as good quality work. I will say the landmark Auto on Duke Street isn't the most posh posh in the aspect of the seating area to wait for the work for your car to be done, but the people there are very much like family very friendly and always willing to make sure they provide you the most cost-effective quality work for the amount of money that you're looking to spend along with options. It is truly the best auto repair shop in northern Virginia for Mercedes, Porsche, Audi, BMW and Volkswagen. Landmark Auto group becomes your family as all of the customers there are mostly returning and or loyal customers who come back, Max is the most loyal businessmen that I know in the northern Virginia market! Thanks guys you make one of the most nervous stressful moments in one's life dealing with their car and issues that it may be having one of the most relaxing professional experiences that I've ever experienced. Max you're the best!!
