Joshua

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!!!

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!

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 Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement

The ignition cables, also known as “spark plug wires” are part of the ignition system. They transfer the spark from the distributor or ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the air-fuel mixture, starting the engine. Over time, the cables can get weak and break down. This will make it harder for the spark to reach the engine cylinders, resulting in engine misfires. The car may not start at all. If one of the spark plugs has gone bad, the car will still start and run, but it will run poorly.
