Robert was on time. He cleaned up the area after fixing the car. And, Robert took a few minutes to explain what would happen during the job, as well as what other future work might be necessary. Courteous, focused, efficient yet conversational. Thank you Robert for getting this vehicle mobile again.

Timothy
17 years of experience
Timothy was terrific, highly knowledgeable and very personable. I had scheduled an appointment to have my daughter's O2 sensors replaced, but after he got here and assessed the situation, he said that we didn't need them replaced. He cleaned out a few areas that might have been causing the problem which reset the check engine light. I didn't get charged for anything except a diagnostic and the gas treatment he put in the car. The repair shop we had originally checked with had said the sensors needed replacing and quoted us $400 to do so and I'm sure if we had gone there instead of with Timothy, they would have been replaced without actually fixing the problem. Timothy was up front about everything he was doing in the car and gave us a list of possible upcoming maintenance items. I loved the service and will definitely use it again.

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.
