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! :-)
Brandon was Awesome! He was very professional and honest ( informed us we didn't really need back brakes as we thought). When he was done he did a short test drive and then took a drive with us to be sure we were satisfied. thank you for your excellent work Brandon!

Michael Straub was the mechanic scheduled to repair my vehicle rear brakes. Michael arrived on time and gave me an outline on what to expect from his service. Michael went right to work and informed me my rear brakes were fine just needed to be adjusted and cleaned. Michael did an inspection of my front brakes and he determined that my front brakes are worn and the rotors need to be replaced. He also discovered that the ball/joint was bad and I need new tie rods in the front on left and right sides. I appreciate his professionalism and approaching the situation with a caring attitude. Michael was candid with me about what my vehicle needed for repair. His recommendations were not only for my information, but to inform me of the risks involved if repairs are not made.Thanks Michael!

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.
