Overall experience is just okay; however, I felt a sense of hustle and hurry in order to move to next (appointment? maybe, i just didn't know). The core work was done; however, like this one, the dashboard indicator lights was not set off while I was told by the technician that it was all done. I knew that it took a while for him to work on the indicator..Anyway, the dashboard light (break wear indicator light) was still not set off which should be done while replacing the pad and sensor. While there maybe other things that I would complain about, I will keep that off the line at this review for this task.

Robert was great. Showed up on time and did the work as expected - replace brake pads on a 2003 BMW 330i. He was also friendly and we had a nice chat while he worked. Would definitely recommend Robert, and will make YourMechanic.com my primary source for mechanic work!

All about Brake Pad Replacement

Depending on your car’s brake system, it may use between 4 to 8 brake pads. When you step on the brake pedal, the master cylinder sends fluid under pressure to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, causing friction that slows down the car. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads wear out and become thinner. If the thickness of brake pads is less than 3mm, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive (city driving tends to wear pads out quicker) brake pads usually last between 30,000 to 35,000 miles. Some vehicles (e.g., BMWs) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system. In these vehicles, you will also need to replace the brake sensors as part of the brake pad service.
