I had issue with this service, after the break pads were replaced they start making a horrendous sound everytime I stopped, but the warranty cover it and all point out to the actual parts not the labor. Brandon did a good job but the parts were defective apparently.
my God it was the most stress less experience with a mechanic in my life. Such a pleasant informative mechanic, Brandon thank you I was a bit nervous having someone come to my home but, this was just so relaxing. He took pictures to let me see my problem it was nice to be informed. Thank you so much Brandon loved experience.

Jamahl is incredibly professional and goes above and beyond to make sure my vehicle is in great shape and that I'm satisfied with the work before he leaves. Plus, if the car needed an additional small/quick repair while here, he even offered to fix it up quickly at no extra cost to make sure the car was ready to go. I was skeptical about having a mechanic work on my car at my home, but now I tell all my friends about the great service I've had with Jamahl and YourMechanic!
Great honest guy!

Richard both showed up and finished ahead of schedule. He walked me through everything he was going to do, and even saved me money by pointing out one of the parts I thought was broken actually didn't need fixing. Car runs great now.

Scott is a great guy. Like other reviews, he likes to talk, and he is pretty funny too but he was disorganized. Pros He is that old school mechanic that has a great wealth of knowledge about fixing cars. He is willing to dive in and check out what is really going on under the hood. What I originally thought was a big problem turned out to be something not so big. Which brings me to my next pro about him. He is honest. He will not BS you or lie to you about it. You will get a fair price. Con Like I said he is an old school mechanic but disorganized. Soooooo he was 2 hours late to the job, and did not come with proper equipment/parts for it. Luckily it was my day off so I had time. For those who don't, I would not recommend Scott if you are on a time crunch. What you should expect is an honest guy working on your car. He will give you a fair price, but expect him to not be on time.

I had originally scheduled an appointment with Trung for my brakes to be done on my corolla. When he took off my wheels to inspect them, he was honest and showed me that my brakes didn't need to be replaced. I'd highly recommend him to anyone with a Toyota. I have used him several times for transmission flushes, front brakes, oil changes and the like and he always does a good job.

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.
