Joshua was able to come earlier than we had booked. He was very professional and polite. After he backed my car out of the garage, he went right to work. I checked on him once and I was very impressed how neatly he had his tools set up. Not only did he replace my front brakes, but he gave the car a test drive, checked all the fluids and put air in my tires. He told me loves what he does. He showed me pictures of the work he had done. He took photos with his iphone as he did the work so I could see what he had done. That was a first!!!

Casey was awesome. He arrive a little late, but considering the horrible traffic, totally understandable for a 7PM appointment. Explained the situation and get the work done quickly. Did courtesy inspection and suggested me to change the front pads as well since they start having speaking noise. Will schedule him for the front pad replacement sometime next week, if he is available :p

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.
