Even though we didn't have to do the job I had thought, he was nice, and did what he could while he was here. I will call him again when I need something else.
He was timely, honest, professional, and trustworthy. He told me what my car needed to work safely, and not what he needed to make money of me. He was honest, and that is really hard to find in this town anymore.

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.

This is the second time I've hired Mr. Rodriguez to inspect/repair my vehicle. Overall, I appreciate his honesty, punctuality, amiability, and respectfulness. Although I had originally requested over $330 worth of services, he told me that I didn't need them. He simply charged me for the following services: (1) steering wheel diagnosis, (2) drive belt adjustment, (3) drum brake adjustment, and (4) tire rotation. Notably, when I asked him to clarify the "tire rotation" service (since the tires hadn't been rotated), he explained that the site's system listed it as such on account of him having to remove the tires. However, on the YourMechanic website, it states, "Rotating worn-out tires is of no use since the purpose of tire rotation is to extend the life of tires. If this is the case, the mechanic will not rotate the tires and we will not charge you for the service." So I'm still skeptical about the charge. I also asked him whether he was able to adequately assess the condition of my vehicle by checking only the right side, and once more he addressed my concern in a timely manner by citing his last inspection one and a half years ago. I had driven this particular vehicle 5,000 miles since then, so from his point of view as an expert, it was safe to assume that the other brakes were fine. Nonetheless, based on our previous encounters, his refusal to charge me for services I didn't need, and the enthusiasm he showed in teaching me about cars, I have no reason to distrust him. I appreciate his time as well as his expertise, and I look forward to hiring him again.

Vladimir was very helpful! First, he was on time! In fact he was 10 min. Early! I told him what issues I've been having with my car. He told me everything he would do and sent me a detailed quote of what other services I'll need to get in the future. I definitely saved money today. I'm glad I didn't have to pull away from work! Convenient and helpful!

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!

Showed up ahead of scheduled time. Was very knowlegable and honest. Only did repair on the brakes that actually needed to be replaced, not all four.

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.
