Harrison Transmission
This is an initial review I will review again when I pick up. Had a new Trans put in my escalade at jenow towing aka hale town auto . 5k miles it needed done again . They where very difficult to deal with . I told harrison transmission about what had just happened he reduced the cost of our job by near half out of professional embarrassment. Shop was clean they are knoledgable and friendly. He does have a shop in a resident has tools and equipment the same if not better than any shop out there . They offer a 6 month unlimited mile warranty. I'll re-review in a few weeks . At this point I trust this mechanic scott ohm . If you need me to answer any questions call me 217 202 9828

Made an appointment online. I received a confirmation and a coupon for a discount was also available. The staff was friendly and very informative. This was my second visit and I wouldn't go any where else. Great experience!

Did a great job rebuilding my transmission and was relatively affordable for what was done
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.
