Thank you for the great service!
He was a great mechanic. He explained things clearly. He reduced the charge when he found out I didn't need the extra work, and I appreciate that. He was an all around nice gentleman. I thank you very much, Jay.

Grzegorz was very knowledgeable about what maintenance was needed and helped explain to me the indicators I'd see for when certain parts would actually need replacement. The opposite of a pointless upsell, and made me feel comfortable with the safety of my vehicle.

Jacob was a great help! I ordered a service much more expensive than I needed and ended up a VERY satisfied customer. / Originally, I had scheduled an oil change and front brake pad replacements. When he arrived, he informed me that my brakes were still in good working condition, but I needed a less-expensive adjustment (brake tightening, I believe). / He was able to not only make the refund process simple, but he was also able to pick up the replacement part and get the work done in no time. / In addition, he was very patient and informative with all my questions. This level of service makes me extremely likely to be a repeat customer! / Thanks, Jacob

Terry was great. He got the job done real quick and it made me feel confident in his ability to fix my problem. The brakes had me worried on the road, but now that Terry worked on it, I feel completely safe driving. I'll look into having him work more on my vehicle.

Jesus

I'm highly impressed with the quality of work and the time that Jesus spent explaining the repairs to me, as well as a couple issues which were found on inspection. Jesus is honest and trustworthy, I showed him a written report of issues from a local shop and he went through each item and showed me each listed thing... The shop recommended over $1042 worth of work fir my car, most of it not really needed, and Jesus was very honest about what did and didn't need repairing. I feel like I dodged a bullet working with your mechanic over local shops. I will definitely be booking with Jesus again. I feel like I've finally found a mechanic I can trust!

Brandon is a great asset! That I would schedule a service and he would be honest enough to tell me that I didn't need that done, was a HUGE deal to me. Brandon has come out before and he's always treated us well. At this appointment he went above and beyond and saved me $180.00! We'll keep asking for Brandon for Sure! :-)

Adjust Drum Brakes Service

What are drum brakes all about?

In older vehicles (usually ones manufactured before 1999), the rear brakes are drum brakes. The drum is a large medal cylindrical housing with brake shoes attached to it. When you press on the brake pedal, brake fluid helps the brake shoe apply pressure to the brake drum, which slows down your vehicle. Over time, the brake drum will wear thin, as constant friction with the brake shoe wears the drum away. When this happens the drum brakes will need to be adjusted to keep them close to the shoe, so that braking is still efficient.

Keep in mind:

  • Some drum brakes systems adjust automatically.
  • When adjusting the drum brakes it’s important to check the wear and tear on both the drums and the brake shoes, to see when both will need to be replaced.

How it's done:

  • Adjust the rear drum brakes

Our recommendation:

Your entire braking system should be routinely serviced. Each component of your system, including the drum brakes, should be examined during tuneups and servicing, and you should schedule regular inspections for the braking system. The braking system is the most critical safety feature on your vehicle, so you should not postpone brake-related services.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to adjust the drum brakes?

  • Softer brake pedal

How important is this service?

Older cars rely on drum brakes for the rear wheels. Drum brakes are a large, metal cylindrical housing on each wheel that are necessary to help your vehicle slow down or stop. Attached to the drum brakes are the brake shoes. When you deploy the brake pedal, brake fluid runs to the brake shoes, and helps them apply pressure to the brake drums. The friction between the drums and the shoes slows down your vehicle. This constant friction makes the drum brakes thinner over time, as the surface layer of the drum keeps wearing off. As the drums become thinner, the space between them and the shoes grows. This distance means that the shoes do not come into as strong of contact with the drums as they normally do, and the braking system will be less efficient than normal.
