It is rare to find such competency and honesty in an automotive shop. Last month I took my truck to the dealer to get some preventative maintenance done. During their safety inspection, they discovered that all my brake pads were in need of replacement...tires also. They recommended that I replace everything within the next couple months and gave me a quote of about $600 for the brakes and $1500 for the tires. I have a dually and I wanted the best tires/brakes, so I was not too surprised at the price. But I figured I would shop around and see what else was out there. I read some reviews online and decided I would give The Brake Shop a try. I gave them a call and got a quote from Carl. For the best heavy duty pads, rotor turning, labor, etc., the brake job quote was about 1/2 of the quote from the dealer. Same pads!..... My appointment was yesterday. After about 45 minutes, Carl told me that I do not need brakes. I have approximately 1/2 of the life left. In all fairness, the dealer did disclose the thickness of the pads and they matched (almost) the measurement that The Brake Shop gave me. The difference was that the dealer said that they needed to be replaced as soon as possible. In addition, Carl said that the front tires should be replaced soon, but the back tires have about 10K miles left on them. I paid Carl $25 for their time/labor and went on my way. When I do need the brakes done, The Brake Shop will get my business! I HIGHLY recommend them. In addition, they have some veterans working for them. Carl is an Iraq combat veteran and Gene is Navy. Give them a try!
