This is the gold mine that everyone hopes to stumble into. A Mechanic that does the right job, correctly the first time & doesn't sell you extra work that you don't need.
Joe is the second generation owner / operator of Don's Brakes & Wheels. Don was his Dad.
My first trip to Don's was in 2004, after a tire shop told me I required new brakes. The breaks that I had were 1 year old from Midas & had needed 2 trips to get done correctly, & the car was making a horrendous sound, so I believed them.
Joe discovered that a lug nut was loose on a front wheel & was causing all the noise the tire shop was claiming was from brakes. He tightened it & sent me on my way.
Two years later 2006 when my brakes started squeeking I went back to him. This time my brakes were about $200 cheaper than Midas & I didn't have to return twice to have them adjsted for squeeks.
I just finished my third trip to Joe & had my second break job. 2011 Once again he saved me several hundred dollars over the competition's estimate.
If this was the only thing Joe had helped my with it would have been enough. However Joe believes in awesome customer service. He hasd recommended to me every other type of auto shop that I have needed since my first visit to him in 2004. All with great results, I'm still driving the same vehicle with 229K miles & feeling save about it.
Don's Brakes & Wheel isn't a fancy shop but they do give trust worthy work and advice for a fair price.
