I was leaving work and stopped here. The guys in the shop were good. The lady taking the money was short with the customers and from what I could see she treats her employees worst. Customers are the reason you have a business and your employees keep that business running for you. I will not go back to this shop just because of her. There is a way to treat people and she doesn't have the skills to be in customer service.

I've been going to this location for close to three years now and they have never disappointed! My car has reached that point where everything needs to be replaced, and they have assisted above and beyond with everything and been incredibly curteous and helpful!Thank you Rick and Crystal, I can't begin to express how much I appreciate ya'll.

Was really impressed with the service. I was told that this was not a good place and that the service was bad. I took my car in to see for myself and they did a awesome job on my car. I give this place a thumbs up

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.
