Second time Carlos has come to my place and hooked it up. First to diagnose and replace a starter then break pads, both done fast and perfect. Easy work for Carlos.

Dodge Challenger - Brake Pads Replacement (Front) - Fort Worth, Texas
On time, professional, very knowledgeable on vehicles and maintenance issues. Robert took the time to show the condition of parts and explain what did or did not need to be replaced or repaired. He is the best kind of mechanic and not someone who would scam a customer into more costly repairs. I had requested a brake pad replacement and Robert showed me that 3 of the 4 pads were in good condition and would not need replacing and even checked the rear pads for condition. I would highly recommend Robert because he is very ethical in his treatment of customers and because he is also a Veteran! GW
