At Crafton Auto Care, we want our Beavercreek 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 937-429-3910, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Crafton Auto Care 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 Crafton Auto Care 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 Crafton Auto Care 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 Crafton Auto Care 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. Crafton Auto Care will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
What People Say About Us
I stopped in to ask a question and discovered Dye's had sold the business. I talked to the new owner, John. He was very friendly and very knowledgable about cars. He took the time to thoroughly explain things to me. I'm sorry to see Dye's go but feel very comfortable with Crafton's.
Incredibly fair prices and since I made an appointment I was in and out in the blink of an eye.
Stopped in and talked to the owner. Super nice guy! I know is family from back in the day and they are good people.

Excellent car repair run by wonderful people.
I got my A/C repaired at Crafton while visiting Beavercreek based on recommendations of friends in the area, and I certainly understand their high praise. Despite several issues in the part getting delayed that were out of Crafton's control, Josh and Sara went out of their way to get the part and get it installed fast enough for me to drive back home on time. I highly recommend Crafton!

I highly recommend taking your vehicle to this shop for repairs. I was very stressed searching for an affordable price to get a clutch job done, and a place that would do a good job. Josh and Sarah both were very friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly to me; HONEST. You can tell Josh truly has a passion for helping people and fixing cars. Him and his shop is what this community/area needs. He was honest and upfront over the phone. He and Sarah communicated their progress on my car throughout the whole job. If your car needs any kind of repair; GIVE THIS SHOP A CALL. Moving forward I will definitely be a lifetime customer. Thank you guys for the great work!
