Scott and his crew at GTA Performance are the only people I will ever let work on any of my vehicles. (I don't let anyone work on my vehicles) These guys are professional yet they truly care about the customer too. They take the time to find the problem then let you know what it its going to take, they even worked with me because I was short on money this week. Then he even had one of his mechanics carry us over to Steak and Shake so we could eat and then "shop" while they replaced my radiator. Scott Cope still knows what integrity, honesty, honor, and respect is all about. I promise you will be treated better than you could ever imagine by these guys.

Northside Brake & Auto
Only brake pads for front of car was needed. They charged 150.00 for labor to do a 30 min at best job.Then emissions test done it failed but they had no idea why or what the code meant. You do emissions test so should have a book or computer to look the code up. Went to auto zone did the diagnostic test all that was needed was a brand new gas cap. In my opinion they rip you off on labor and they tried to get my son to put new parts that weren't needed on his car.

I recommend Scott Cope to everyone! He is FANTASTIC. On top of that, he is honest and runs a business the way every business owner should; with honesty, integrity, compassion for his workers and customers, and will bend over backwards to help you. We drive an hour just to come to Scott for our oil changes and anything else we need with our cars.
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.
