Mazda 5 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Austin, Texas
Edgar was amazing. Showed up right away and found the leak to my car immediately. I also requested the back breaks be changed out. Both things were done in a reasonable time and I didn’t need to get an Uber or beg for a loaner car. Plan on using this service and Edgar’s help again in the near future.
