Needed front brakes done and since my life depends on stopping so I bought my own front break pads rather than let someone pick cheap ones for me., I called around for not just the price to install but someone I felt comfortable with and won't give me the attitude, can you bring your eggs to a restaurant, or paintballs to the paintball place?
From my requirements, I found Swift Auto. After I arrived at the shop, I did the once over and checked out the type of cars they were working on (HONDA) and interviewed the biggg boss (who worked at Honda SF and is the mechanic as well) , after this, I entrusted my stopping power to them.
Sitting in a small typical boring waiting area (closet) - I watched him work on the car... seemed like a no-brainer for him, and he greased the parts that needed it (just like the manual said (yes, I thought about doing it myself at one time), and in a matter of 42 minutes on the rack, and a quick test drive, he presented me with a bill that I was glad to pay.
This was a month ago..... tomorrow I will get my rears done.
