When it comes to brake repairs, your safety is of utmost importance. Even if you’re a careful driver, GMC Safari brake problems can put you at risk on the road. Pulsing in the brake pedal, increased stopping distance, brake noise, or an illuminated dashboard brake light should all be cause for concern. No matter what shape your GMC Safari is in, it will likely need brake repair at some point – and that’s totally normal! Over time, parts of your brakes (like the brake pads) experience natural wear and tear and eventually need to be replaced. Driving habits and climate can also affect when you might need brake repair.

Tire problems are another one you don't want to let linger. Tire damage can inhibit your ability to maintain control of your vehicle and stay safe while driving. If you have a flat tire on your 1986 GMC Safari, we can change it for you. In some cases, our technicians may be able to repair a GMC Safari tire with the appropriate plug and patch. More often than not, punctures in the tread area that are less than ¼ inch in diameter can be successfully repaired. If a repair isn’t safe for your particular tire situation, a technician can answer any questions you have when choosing a tire replacement that suits your vehicle and your budget. We may also recommend an alignment or balancing when you have a tire repair since tire damage can impact other "around the wheel" parts.
