Brake Repair Service in Huntsville, AL

Keeping your vehicle in good condition and staying safe on the road requires that you take care of many separate vehicle components, but one of the services that’s easiest to forget is brake repair or replacement. You drive so much that it’s hard to tell when your brakes are nearing the end of their lifespan. The closest example of this would be how we don’t notice when our shoes are overdue for replacement until something starts hurting! If you know you need a routine repair or need a replacement, come to our service bay at University Kia. Our staff is eager to get your car back in peak condition.

Although we encourage you to stop by if you have no idea when you last had your brakes repaired, there are a few symptoms to look out for that will give you a clear warning. The important thing to remember regarding brakes is that everyone is different. If you drive in the city and make more frequent and harsh stops, you’ll need brake replacements far more frequently than people who drive over expansive country roads and rarely need to come to a stop. Many modern vehicles have electronic sensors that will give you a notification on your dashboard if your brakes have worn down too much. If that sensor isn’t working or you don’t have one, try to pay attention and notice if your brake pedal pulses when you press down on it. Worst case, you’ll hear a loud screeching noise or will have a hard time slowing quickly. Whichever symptom you notice, come to University Kia right away.

To learn more about our Service Department and plan your visit, click on the Service & Parts tab at the top of our website. If you just want to learn more about our experienced technicians and about how many people we’ve helped, click on Service Department. If you have any questions regarding vehicle repairs in general or aren’t sure if something you notice is symptomatic, send us a message through the Ask a Tech form. If you know that your vehicle has been recalled for whatever reason, click on Vehicle Recall Request and we’ll get everything sorted out for you. If you want to make sure we have space for you in our garage, use the Schedule Appointment link.

Stay safe on the road and keep your car in impeccable shape with us at University Kia. Our technicians will get you a much-needed brake repair service in Huntsville, AL. After all this is over, you’ll have a much easier time controlling your vehicle on I-565.

I had been through every online source car shopping for my granddaughter a safe, excellent value car for her 16th birthday. When I spotted the perfect car on University Kia's website, I emailed to check the availability. I received a call back and was directed to Maurice Dobbins. If I told you that within an hour, we were on our way for a 5 hour drive to pick up that perfect car, you might think I was dreaming but within 24 hours, the dream came true for my granddaughter - Passion red, Kia Optima S with moonroof, Apple car play and less than 11,000 miles. Everyone at the dealership was great, the car was detailed like new and ready for pick up. We highly recommend that you give University an opportunity to earn your business!

Great place. Nice people. But I have a complaint. I went and took my brand new car (2020 Kia Forte GT-line) in for a full synthetic oil change and tire rotation and they charged me $127. I was told that full synthetic oil change was only $70 they did not tell me they charged for the tire rotation. I can go to pep boys and get a tire rotation and full synthetic oil change for around $70 to $80. And that’s probably where I’ll go next time. Either that or fire stone or express oil. I was shocked at the price. At least the ford dealer didn’t even charge for a tire rotation they throw it in for free when I had a ford. I don’t even think the Honda dealer charges that much. The sales experience I had was pretty good. Andrew Harris is great. Highly recommend him.

Heath put us in the perfect car, and we didn’t even realize that would be our ideal car! My wife and I were in the market to downsize our vehicle. Heath listened to our wants and needs, then gave us a small selection to choose from, explaining how each vehicle met our wants. We ended up with a vehicle we had never considered, and it is performing above our expectations! Also, Russell in the back office was professional, knowledgeable, and patiently worked with us to ensure our supplemental needs were taken care of while completing the final paperwork.

When I went to University Kia, I was in a bad place. A week prior, my car had been totaled by a drunk punk wielding a four thousand pound death machine. I wasn't given the liberty of deciding when I would buy a new car, that decision was made for me by a selfish individual who didn't care who he infected with his whiskey filled butterfly effect. That being said, purchasing this vehicle was the greatest car buying experience of my life. The salesman I dealt with was named Heath. He took time to make sure I found the vehicle that worked best for me and my family. I greatly appreciate all of his efforts.

I bought a 2020 Kia Sportage. I was able to do 90% of every thing on line and by phone. Calvin made the buying prosses very quick with no presser at all. Calvin had the Sportage clean and ready when I arrived. He call me a couple of days latter to insure that I understand how all the tec stuff worked and understood how to use it. I will buy all my Kia's from Calvin at University Kia.

Most car dealers have outrageous prices and high-pressure sales associates. Prices on new AND used cars at University Kia are lower than any other dealer around. I was able to get a new Kia for THOUSANDS less than MSRP. I LOVE MY NEW KIA!

In my own experience, car-buying has usually been a stressful process, so I can be skeptical when having to shop for a new car. High pressured sales representatives are frustrating; but just as frustrating are sales reps who don't seem to know much of anything about the cars they're selling. I have to say, University KIA took me by surprise. Andrew Harris was exceptional! There were a couple of cars that caught my interest, and he seemed to know everything a person could know about each of them--telling me things about them I wouldn't have even thought to ask, which helped a lot! Thanks to him, I was less stressed and felt well-informed and equipped to make the right choice. No stress, no pressure...just genuinely caring and helpful guidance with lots of patience! Thank you, Andrew. I hope you're still working there the next time I need a car.

I went in there to look for a used car for work commute and talked with Pauley who is actually a service rep not a sales rep and he was great, super professional and accommodating. He wasn't pushy like trying to sale a car at all cost, he was just trying to make it comfortable for us. And I think Bill or Ben I can't exactly remember (financing rep) was super helpful as well. Even though we didn't get a car they were great. Definitely ask for Pauley.
