Loved the service with Joshua, really felt like he went the extra mile to inspect my car. He went so far as to inflate my spare tire! No one does that! I'd highly recommend him.

Honorios was on time despite having to pick up some last minute parts and did a great job with the car. I'll definitely use him again. He does a good job communicating what's needs to be serviced now and what doesn't and definitely keeps your best interest and saving you money in mind.

Fixed the problem he came to fix. Identify 2 other (legitimate) problems. Changed oil. Noticed a minor leak after oil change on test drive. And he kept at it until he made absolutely sure there is no leak.. In fact, he gave me his cell to call him if I do notice a leak today and tomorrow. Absolutely superb experience!

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.
