Godwin

Godwin did a thorough job inspecting the car and pointed out something important about an airbag light that was on, saying that this could be anywhere from a $10 to a $1000 fix. As a result we are going to pass on this car and keep looking. As far as I am concerned Godwin did exactly what we hoped for in terms of catching issues with the car that could have cost us lots of money to fix if we had purchased it.

Joe

Joe was great to work with. Showed up at my workplace and replaced my front brake pads. I also had a concern about wheel alignment and he checked that out for me on the spot. He was running late because of a previous appt, but he called ahead of time and let me know exactly when to expect him. Friendly and professional!

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.
