Early. Fast. Insightful.
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.

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!
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.

Great service. Always willing to take the time to explain and show you the problem. You cannot get this kind of service at a shop and he does the work at your house! No more shuttling cars to shops and having to wait or have a friend pick you up and take you back to get your car.

Peter arrived early and quickly realized my Brakes were good and did not need replacing. He was efficient in resolving all the issues I had him booked for. He identified a new issue and gave me a good recommendation to fix it. Peter is always looking out to save me money, time and keep me and my car safe. The dealership quoted me over $600 to do just one of the jobs that Peter managed for less than $400. I would highly recommend his services. Just don't book him, when I need him. :)

Did exactly what I needed him to do. Fixed rear drum brake that was completely disassembled and leaking fluid. Charged me the price that was quoted by the website. Michael even stayed after finishing the brake to help me fix a battery issue that was causing troubles.

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.

Jonathan was highly professional and trustworthy. Was told the last time I had a vehicle inspection that I would need rear shoes for my truck. Went over the recommended time, had been driving in the mountains down steep slopes, and figured it had to be cutting it close. Hardly. He showed me I still had 75% of my rear pads left, and 50% of my front. The dealership wanted $450 for the rear, and although I knew I wouldn't be going there for the service, I still figured I would need to change them. He did only what needed to be done, even after purchasing all parts to do front and rear brakes. His honesty gained a customer for as long as I live in this area. Skilled technicians with honesty are hard to come by. Recommended by all means.

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.
