I took my Tacoma to another shop which rip me off , I came across this shop thru yellow pages . By typing toyota specialist . The owner was very professional and knows Toyotas inside out . In just 5 min of talking to him about my issue . He already knew what the problem was . After taking the truck to several shops for scanner codes . After spending $420 in two separate shops . He fix the problem for $80 bucks. I highly recommend this shop . Will be bringing the rest of my cars he for maintanace .

Do not go to these people!! What a bunch of scammers!! I paid for an oil change providing my own oil and filter and decided to do it myself this time around and to my surprise I find the same cheap factory filter that came with my car when I bought it and the oil was way too black to have been changed recently. So to conclude they charged me for an oil change they didn't do and kept my supplies.

A small shop one block off US1 that is honest and does perfect work. Specializes in Lexus and Toyota, Japanese cars. However they have worked on my Mazda Millenia, 25 year old Buick Reatta and on friends personal watercraft with a seized engine and Mercedes. On the Reatta the labor estimate to replace the A/C compressor showed 3 hours, however due to vehicle age it took 6 hours and would not accept more than original estimate. Owner is Toyota and Lexus master technician certified and all mechanics are ASE certified. Small enough to know you, big enough to rebuild Lexus 32 valve engine and transmission. A very rare shop in S. Florida.

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.
