Jamahl
15 years of experience
This was the best interaction I've ever had with a mechanic. Jamahl was on time and communicative through the whole repair process. He diagnosed the issue right away and clearly explained my options and best course of action to get my car up and running. When he came out to do the repair (in the rain!!) he kept me updated the whole time and got the issue resolved. I highly recommend using him as a mechanic and I plan to for any car troubles down the line!

All about Brake Shoe Replacement

Brake shoes are found only at the rear wheels in cars with a drum brake system. When you step on the brake pedal, brake shoes press against the brake drums to cause friction that slows down the car. Brake shoes usually last twice as long as brake pads.
