Texas Best Transmission
I had my transmission rebuilt at another shop about 2 years and 60,000 miles ago and after occasional issues during hot weather, my transmission failed. The other shop said too many miles on my car, my regular mechanic advised again a used automatic. I found Texas Best Transmission online. The owner seemed very knowledgeable about some of the issues with Honda automatics and uses a shift kit to specifically address those problems. I had my car towed down on a Monday morning. He called later that day and said it needed a rebuild and would be ready Friday. I went down on Wednesday that week while I was in the area and Robert (the owner) already had my transmission torn down and the case being cleaned. He said he hadn't found anything wrong with the rebuild other than he isn't a fan of the Honda clutch packs. He calls Friday and my car is done. Turns out the other shop left plastic in the cooling lines which kept the cooler from working.Every shift is consistent and crisp now.

Gary D's Automotive & Auto Body
Great Mecahnic - good people !! Brought my 2006 avalance to Gary the check engine light had been on for months. I had brought to my previous mechanic who could not figure it out. I had it in the shop (with the previous mechanic) three different times and he finally said after doing a few things that he could figure it out - I spent over $600.00 and made no progress. Had spoken with Gary brought it in - he had it diagnosed in less than two minutes - the other guy does not have the diaagnostic stuff Gary has. Gave me an idea what we where looking at - I said fix it was done in less than 2 days and it has run great since no issues. Great mechanic - go see them if you need help !

Gary D's Automotive & Auto Body
I have been to many auto mechanics due to raising 2 kids and have always been grateful for the work these guys do. The staff is friendly, like the days when customer service was genuine and real. The quality of work is great. Never have been dissatisfied. I still take my car there for simple work as an oil change, tire repair and even major repairs and have had my daughters car done due to accidents over the years. Paint & Body are always excellent.They have even found errors due to my daughter taking her car for body repair to other places and have corrected them so the car would not have issues later. I recommend Gary D's and always have.

Midas Auto Service Experts
This Midas went under new management in 2009 and I have been taking my car to them since. They are by far the most honest shop in Arlington. I had a a/c repair done in early 2010 and the a/c worked great for over two years. I took it back to them in 2013 and they a/c compressor had went out. This was no fault of theirs but they worked with me on the repair even though it was completely out of their warranty. Worked with Brian the owner and am completely satisfied with everything they do. Take care of not only my car but all my families cars. Great, Great shop!!!

Sam and Joe's Foreign Car Repair
Great service on my 95 Mercedes E300 Deisel. I purchased the car at an estate sale. I had no service information or records. Sam and Joes checked the car over and found a few problems. All problems were fixed in record time. The price was right and I feel all of their employees are professional. I was given a tour of the facility and met the mechanic that worked on my car. I would highly recommend Sam and Joes to service your foreign car. I will be back when I need service on my E300.

My car broke down yesterday and in less than 24 hours this place had my car fixed! I recommend this place to everyone because of the friendly, fast, and superb service. I am proud to say that if my car ever breaks down again I will be a returning customer! Another plus this business has is that they offer free towing if you call them first and have them fix your car. Thank you High Tech Transmission Specialists!!!

Ace Automotive Services Inc
Been coming to Ace for as long as they've been in business, they have always had staff that is very knowledgeable. They have always been able to explain it to me in simple terms so I can understand the problem with my cars. Never had to bring it back more than once for the same problem. Will be a life long customer of Ace Automotive Services! And they're right under the water tower so it's really easy to find.

Independent Foreign Car Repair
They are reliable and honest. Do not repair something that doesn't need it. Have treated us very well on all the foreign cars we have taken there. Especially my 2003 Pilot. Have recommended them several times. Have told me about repairs that are under lifetime warranty and sent me to dealer. Some businesses would have done the repair without informing me of the warranty. Really appreciate their honesty.

High Tech Transmission Specialists
Took my car to High Tech after being told that I had a transmission leak. Turned out not to be the case. The team at High Tech did a great job working with me to get my car in and looked at. All of this was done with great amount of courtesy and professionalism and no charge. Fantastic! I will definitely go there again if I am told that I have transmission issues in the future.
Tips & Advices
Ceramic brake pads are made from dense, durable ceramic. They are favored for their relative silence while driving compared to metal or organic brake pads. They also have little wear and tear on the overall brake system and are very reliable. However, they are more expensive than metal or organic brake pads. Additionally, their performance deteriorates in extreme driving conditions.
Brake rotors typically last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles.
Brake shoes are used in drum brakes--rather than disc brakes--which is the original braking system designed for vehicles. Just as brake pads are the friction component of disc brakes, brake shoes are the friction component of drum brakes. When the brakes are applied, a wheel cylinder pushes the brake shoe against the brake drums, which spin while the vehicle is in motion, and causes the vehicle to stop.
A squeaking or squealing sound when applying newly replaced brakes is normal. It comes from the rotor vibrating against the new brake pads. It should quiet down after about 250 miles, and should be more or less silent by 750 miles, when the brake system has had some time to synchronize itself.
This depends on the car, the brake system, and the car owner's driving habits. Typically, a car's brakes should be replaced after about 50,000 miles, but some car's brakes may last anywhere from 25,000 to 70,000 miles. Car owners shouldn't wait for a magic number to replace their brakes. They should check them regularly, and pay close attention if they hear any weird noises or if the car feels shaky while braking. Brakes are a critical safety component of a car, so it's important to stay on top of brake maintenance.
