Noe

Noe was very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. His experience shines through - he knew exactly what he was doing and he made quick and confident assessments of the vehicle. Hands down one of the best mechanics I've ever worked with. I don't have more words because he just knew what he was doing, and he executed the job quickly and efficiently. And it's awesome that he was 30 mins early!

I am so happy about my experience with yourmechanic.com. Casey was very knowledgeable, communicative, and professional. The cost of the work done was much lower than what I had been quoted at the repair shop. One thing I especially liked about Casey, was that he seemed real about what needed to be done ASAP and what I could work on at a later date. With other places, I feel like they word things in an alarming matter to try and get me to do it all at once, which I'm just not able to afford. I hope I have more experiences like this, as I will be booking all of my work through yourmechanic.com from now on! Thank you!

Kenneth

Kenneth was exceptional. I hadn’t used YourMechanic before, but it couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I will definitely use the service again based on this experience and will, of course, request the same mechanic. Kenneth sized up the problem with my car right away and went above and beyond to fix it. On a Saturday. I really appreciate that. He was professional, personable, and explained everything as he went along. And my car runs perfectly! I also really liked the email alerts about the arrival time, and the prices are better than other estimates I got online. Thank you!

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.
