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 Starter Replacement

A starter is an electrical motor that is connected to the battery. The job of a starter is to set the engine (pistons, crankshaft, etc.) in motion when you turn the ignition switch on. Once the engine starts and is in motion, the job of starter is done. If the starter goes bad, the engine will not crank properly when you turn the ignition key on or may not crank at all.
