Rainbow Muffler
Today was my first visit to Rainbow Muffler based other clients comments. Like most of the positive comments, I had a great experience with the professions that worked on my 1968 Camaro RS. They recommended a deep throated muffler system, fixed my drivers door handle and a marker light and parking light. Each mechanic was friendly and professional. No rip off at this shop. I'll be back anytime 'Camie' needs some maintenance. Do Not Heasitate to call or stop in.You'll find knowledgable and friendly stall!Mike (from 'Madeira Beach'.

He replaced my serpentine belt and 2 days later it broke and he expected me to pay for the product again. I had another mechanic look and he said it as the wrong belt to begin with.

Jerry's Automotive Service
I was down in Florida to visit my 90 year old father. he had a clicking noise in steering wheel of his car and his long time shop told him it would be over 900 to repair. My dad did not trust what he heard. I looked up shops on line and after calling a up few Jerry was jammed buy agreed to look at it while I waited that day.I took him 30 seconds to check it out, show me what was wrong and gave us a price of 200 plus tax and set up appointment for the next day.Picked up car next day with noise gone, showed me old part and bill was exactly what he said it would be.I have been in the automotive field for 45 years and I was impressed that he did business the way EVERYONE should do it.Thank You Jerry.Michael Kohler, Westtown NY

Mahoney Auto Repair
My 2500 Chevy truck almost didn’t make it to Mahoney’s. I was assured they would diagnose and repair my vehicle. In just a few hours the work was complete. Mahoney’s claimed the problem was just a faulty MAF sensor which they replaced. Only $224.00 and two miles later I made it home, although something did not seem right. The next day my truck drove worse than ever. I finally took it to Maher Chevy where they correctly diagnosed the issue for $89. Turns out the turbo-up pipe was cracked, and it needed replacing. Now I’m no mechanic, but it’s obvious to me Mahoney’s had no idea what was wrong. Would an honest mechanic create a diagnosis and complete unnecessary maintenance just make a buck? No way! I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Rainbow Muffler
A bunch of scammers. These people overcharge me for parts and did a bad job. Did not solve the problem. Took my car to another shop and the problem was the coil. Nothing to do with a starter or belts which what the rainbow muffler shop changed. They need to stick to mufflers and leave the real job to those that know what they're doing. Dana treats you nice to then rob you blind. Shame on them all.

*Update to original post-Took car to professional mechanic-This company had put brake pads on backwards on both sides leading to all of the problems described below. Not sure how a person knowing what they are doing would do that on both sides._____________________Please, if you are considering safety of your family, please go through a reputable company. This company installed new brakes and they stopped working while I was driving. As dangerous as that is I thought maybe they messed up big by accident. When I phoned him up he said he would come take a look. I finally got a hold of him again three days later. He got angry and said I didn't pay him enough for the job and he doesn't come back for cheap jobs like that. If you are concerned about your safety then please use a reputable company.

Sebastian and his family are great people and he's a truly excellent mechanic that is always honest. RPM is the only place I'll bring my cars for repairs.
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.
