He is the only mechanic I trust to work on my vehicle.Bryant is knowledgeable and reliable.
The appt was 11 am. Bryant came at 5. I had to text to find out when he would come. He had parts issues but failed to communicate how late he would be. We only needed front disc pads. The rotors were not damaged but were replaced. This time although Bryant is very capable and I do not feel he meant to. We were overcharged and communication could have been much better.

Brenda was very professional and courteous with our appointment. I would recommend Brandon to anyone.
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.

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.

David was prompt, professional, and very easy to work with. He even went out of his way to come back to my vehicle outside of my scheduled appointment time to install a part that became available earlier than anticipated. I highly recommend David, and have recommended him to my colleagues at the office. Very happy with his work and his integrity.

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.
