The Brake Shop
Greast service and no added pressure to buy everything else!I had limited funds, and they flushed and changed the oil, and even discovered a muffler connection broken while underneath. Instead of gouging me with a lot of extra costs and labor, they repair the vehicle within my budget, told what else was needed if I could come back, all with a courteous understanding demeanor. Thank you Brake Shop! I had just come from a Kwik Kar that was one expensive price, all the frills, and no way just to get a simple oil change done any cheaper. Genuine mechanics and great service at The Brake Shop, home of the gorilla outside.

Pit Stop Auto Repair
I have a Hyundai Elantra and have used these guys since I bought the car a little over 2 years ago. They are knowledgeable and fair; they warned me about a suspension problem the dealership missed when I had the car inspected (the dealership later saw the issue, but only after I pointed it out to them....then they wanted twice as much to repair it!!). I chose them because they were close to where I live (missouri city), but contiued to use them even after I moved to Houston. You can shop around, but you seriously won't find a better group of mechanics anywhere near the area.

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.
