Kings Auto Repair
Sat 45 minutes for 1 used tire, They told me they didn't have the exact size but they had one for my car. After 15 minutes turns out that the tire they had to sell me " 45 dollars " had a hole in it. they didn't tell me that. instead they attempt to retrieve another tire from somewhere else while I wait. When the technician returns they find out there is a hole in this same tire. Still while I sit in the waiting room nobody tells me in the mean time that they don't have the tire. They attempt to leave and get another tire. When he gets back with the " other tire " it turns out this tire has a hole in the exact same spot. They laugh about how he is so stupid he grabbed the same tire and left the other one. after the long wait they inform me they can't do anything for me. I am a working college student after leaving my job early to make it there before class starts they wasted a whole hour of my day attempted to overcharge me found amusement in they horrible service provided and sent me on my way with big middle finger. Up until this day this place was the only place I would bring my car for repairs because it was close. I would not come back or recommend this place to anybody I know. over priced, and they don't appreciate loyal paying customers. My advice. Don't waste your time coming to this place. It's a shame you can't rely on a good shop in your neighborhood to do honest work with good customer service. Horrible and inconvenient experience. I will not go back for work here again.

AAMCO Transmissions & Total Car Care
These guys have really raised the bar! I have heard and experienced many bad issues with auto repair in the past. I had even trusted some 4 letter named place with fixing my car and it was worse than when I took it to them. I was VERY reluctant in trusting another shop but a friend told me that this place not only fixed their car but any issue they had after, this place solved it and took care of them like a friend. not like these other places. I would tell anyone that is checking reviews to choose the place to go. I say HERE! They have much more than transmission rebuilding. They have friendly staff and took me home 5 miles away and picked me up. Figured out problems even the dealership couldn't fix! I was captivated by that alone. I can not say enough good things about these guys. The Manager there Gary is very upfront and lets you know what costs will be. That is very important to me! They really do everything, except tires. If they did that I would buy them too from these guys! Great job! I will surely tell anyone I hear has a car problem go there! Thank you for taking care of my car!!!!!!!!!!!

Don Brown Chevrolet
had a really good experience purchasing a car from Don Brown Chevrolet. I would have to say that everyone was very warm and friendly. I was help by both Paul DeYoung, who did an AMAZING job with helping me with my vehicle, and he has one of the best personalities ever! Ben Cordia assisted me as well and they made the experience a breeze. I was especially pleased that everything was done in a timely manner. The only complaint I would have is that when I spoke with Ben on the phone, he stated I would be able to get customer cash that would only apply to the vehicle that I was purchasing. I was never offered that. Once I got home, and the excitement from my purchase wore off, I remembered, but it was too late, the deal was done. I would recommend going forward that they not tell people they will do something for them that they have no intention of doing. Overall I was happy and would purchase again, I just would make sure that I don't sign the contract until I receive all verbal agreements.

Route 66 Transmission Rebuilders
You know how there are people who makes worst for all and there are people who makes it all worth it, Dave, Steve and his dad are the people who makes a worthy difference in this world. I moved to STL recently and my transmission failed, no drive no reverse, short on money, I was calling every single transmission shop, people wanted to charge me price of my vehicle for transmission rebuild until I called Dave and he did a total rebuild in 1 day in front of my eyes less than half of the price for anyone else, he was so fast he could do it blind folded, which authenticates his experience of rebuilding over 35 years, and they went out of their way to make sure I got my transmission working well. I recommend Route 66 Transmissions to everyone. Thank you all.

Westport Autohouse
We absolutely love Westport Autohouse! Mike and his mechanics are awesome. After several disappointing visits to a local dealership to have our Range Rover serviced, my husband and I stumbled across this shop. On occasion I could explain an issue to Mike over the phone and right away he could tell me what was wrong, confirming what the dealership findings were (without the extra maintenance) and by far at a much cheaper price. He's always been honest with us and only does the repairs that need to be done using quality parts and products..not after market items. We love his ethics and professionalism so much, that my husband has started taking his Dodge there also. I'm glad we have someone trustworthy we can take our vehicles to.

STS Car Care & Towing
What do you want in a mechanic?Trustworthy?Fair price?Good Customer Service?Steve at STS Car Care and Towing delivered all of these things!The guys in the shop were super nice as well and didn't make me feel out of place or uncomfortable.These guys are experienced and fair. I have no worries when I take my car in; I know I am being treated well. They will even pick my car up at my place of business and take it to the shop to services it and then bring it back or if I drop it off they will provide me with a ride to work if I need to leave it. I have had to have my car towed before also and they were prompt, reasonable, and provided me with a ride to my destination.I have been going there for 10 years.5 stars in my book.

Carriage Auto Sales & Service
I had went to 18 car lots before coming to Carriage Motors, I went to all the big name lots without any luck I decide to try a smaller lot. I was so pleased with the people at Carriage Motors in just 2 days I felt like they were like family. The owner is so pleasing, nice and trustworthy. Before I even got my car off the lot they help me put my seat covers on, my steering wheel cover and told me everything I needed to know about my car I purchased. I recommend that if you are looking for a car with low miles, and extremely clean this is where you should go. I will be getting all my cars from them from now on. And I will be keeping in touch with them in the future. LOL they are so nice.

Gravois Auto Repair
My wife and I have been using Gravois Auto Repair for all of our auto service needs for almost 10 years now. They have good prices, they do great work and they are exceptionally trustworthy. While traveling I recently went to one of those 15 minute oil change places and I was immediately reminded why Gravois is the only shop I use. The same oil change I pay $18 for at Gravois was $35 at this place. To make it worse they told me the $35 oil wasn’t very good and tried to up-sell me to 2 higher grade oils at $50 and $80 respectively. You will never deal with high pressure tactics like that at Gravois. If you are looking for good honest service at a fair price, this is the place.

Don Brown Chevrolet
I bought my first car at Don Brown Chevrolet. It was used rental 2005 Malibu. I just got my 2nd car, a new 2013 Spark LS from the Down Brown dealership and had just as great of an experience, if not better. The show room is clean, the people are very friendly, there are so many models of cars to look at on-site and test drive. Nisha Wheeler was my sales person and she did a fantastic job. She's warm, funny, generous, and WORKS FOR YOU. She did everything in her power to make sure my goals were met on the day I arrived. I told her I was going to look at a few other places, but she wouldn't let me. I'm glad she didn't!
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.
