Gulf Coast Tire & Auto Repair
Friendly, family business. Will work with you on different situations. Won't lie/try to get you to fix or repair things that dont need it. Honest, and loyal. Taken my car to the dealership and they wanted me to pay a fortune to get something fixed, that Justin(owner) found online that it was under warrenty and the dealership didnt want to honor it and tried to argue with me. If you're in a bind with getting to and from work or whereever they will pick up your car, drop it off, or anything to make the process easier for you. My vehicle will be taken to Gulf Coast Tirea and Automotive from now on. I don't trust anyone else.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received today at Gulf Coast Tire and Automotive Repair. I was quoted a price for replacing my brakes and rotors at a competitor; I then called Gulf Coast and spoke to Justin Fadalla. He quoted me a much better price and was also much more professional. We then set up an appointment that was convenient for me. I was able to wait at the location for the repairs. During my wait, the staff made sure that I was comfortable. The company is by far the best repair shop in town. Knowing that the company is locally owned is an added bonus. I recommend Gulf Coast for auto repairs.

I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with a broken head gasket and cracked head. To add to the problems, I found out that a used head had to be found as Ford no longer made heads for my '99 Ford Ranger. But I must say, Jim Anderson and his team as well as his machinist came through and found the part I needed and got my truck up and running again. Anderson Automotive did an excellent job and put me at ease. Very impressed with the quality of the work and highly recommend. Thank you Anderson Automotive.

I brought a stereo for my son's 16th Birthday. The gave me an estimate over the phone of the price and time for installation. When I got there, they installed it in a timely manner for the estimated price and did not try to overcharge me. They were knowledgable about the stereo I had bought, even though I had bought it somewhere else. Professional, timely, reasonable price.

great at what they do, professional, knowledgeable. I made my appointment online, and they got right to my car. I was done within and hour. A lot of people criticize things they do not fully understand alot. I think people need to understand that when they take there vehicle to a mechanic, that they do not work for free. Quality & workmanship is what you are paying for.

This is the best Goodyear I've been to. I've had many car problems before and had to go in and get things fixed. I paid a lot less than I thought I was going to have to and the staff laid everything out for me in plain terms I could understand. I will not go to another service center for any problem only this Goodyear.

Took a used truck there that I was considering buying, and a mechanic looked it over, asked me thoughtful questions, went under the truck, gave me his opinion on whether I should buy it-- and then REFUSED to let me pay him. Solid guys here; almost a throwback to bygone days of honor and kindness.

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.
