Jeffrey is truly awesome. If you're having service done by him, I can say he will make things right if they weren't done right the first time, but I highly doubt he would do something wrong the first time. Jeffrey has some of the best values I've seen from someone in a long time. Jeffrey would be my personal mechanic all the time if I could choose him!

My car broke down and had to be towed to my apartment. I used Tom's services to diagnose the car. He kept me informed about the details of the diagnostics he ran. Unfortunately, the problem with my car was bigger and Tom told me that it will take many more hours to diagnose. He was very honest and laid out all the options for me. Sadly, it is my car's fault and not Tom's. He tried to do his best.

All about Axle/CV Shaft Assembly Replacement

Axle shafts are commonly referred to as “CV axles” or “half-shafts.” An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move. Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots (grease container). The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots (grease leaking out). Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.
