They did a great job diagnosing my brake issue. They walked me through my options and alternatives for the repair without any pressure. Great experience. Since it was raining that day, they even walked my wife out to the car under an umbrella. Hi Stephen! Thanks for taking the time to review us. Thank you for your friendship, your business, and the opportunity to serve you throughout the years! 1/30/2017

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Tbe minute I strpped into the office of GIC car clinic, I knew my car and I would be taken care off. In my personal business, communication is everything, and I loved the sraight foreward style of communication and constant updates I received about my car. Their entire staff is friendly and caring. Besides the great care for my car, they also took care of me. I was provided with a loaner car, which solved my biggest immediate problem. Their beutiful office had a counter with coffee, really good rum cake, and even home baked biscotti cookies. A bowl of fruit and good candy were there as well. I felt reassured and taken care of. A few days after I got my car back, which runs great, I received a pachage from GIC car clinic. In it was a gift, containing a beautiful card and two delicious brownies, which went absolutely great with my cup of coffee that morning. My car and I have never been better taken care off. Thank you! Hi Dagmar! Thank you for taking the time to review us and thank you for giving us the opportunity to take care of your Honda. We sincerely appreciate your business. We look forward to working with you again soon! 2/1/2017

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

GIC is great! I just discovered them when looking for an alternative to my dealership service department. They are welcoming, courteous and take the time to explain the work that needs to be done (and the work that does not need to be done - they don't just stick it to you because they got the hood open. If it needs repair they say so. If it does not - they can be trusted to say so and not just charge you for necessary work). I like the photos they take of the parts that they'r working on that support the work they're doing. Getting text updates is also a plus. Great guys - I will be back and you should check them out. 3/29/2017

Sinking Brake Pedal Repairs San Jose | GIC Car Clinic

If you are driving along and when you go to stop your car, your brake pedal goes all the way to the floor without stopping, or just barely stopping your car, do you know what to do? Many people will immediately panic, but if you keep calm and maintain a steady mind, you should be able to stop in time, if just barely. If you panic, you may injure someone else or yourself and cause more damage to your car.

If this does happen to you, the first thing you should do is bring your car to GIC Car Clinic and have one of our certified mechanics repair the problem for you. Brake issues are nothing to put off until next week, what could be a simple repair could compound itself into a more expensive repair and more down time for your car.

What can cause the brake pedal to travel all the way to the floor? There are a few things and some of them you can check yourself at home in your own driveway.

  1. First off, check for leaking brake fluid. Lift the hood and look into the master cylinder reservoir, if it is low, you may have a leak. Look around on the ground under your car for any signs of the leaking brake fluid.
  2. Another reason could be a bad master cylinder. The master cylinder is what actually transfers the braking force from the pedal to the brakes and if it is not working correctly, you could have very little brake pressure.
  3. Most of today’s cars have a brake vacuum booster which, if it fails, can cause your pedal to drop to the floor very quickly.
  4. Another factor that can contribute to a weak and falling brake pedal is the driver. That’s right, the driver. If you are constantly riding your brakes or are very hard on them, heat will build up not only on the brake components but also in the brake fluid itself. When the brake fluid gets hot, it loses its viscosity becoming very thin. This will cause the braking system to require more force to stop the car.

If you have any of the above issues with your cars brakes, bring it in to GIC Car Clinic in San Jose, California today and have it checked out. It could help prevent an accident.
