I was on a business trip in the Dells. I had an injector seal blow on my Mercedes diesel. No place even close that works on these. He had me bring it to his garage and they figured out how to get me back on the road. They didn't take advantage of me financially either A good honest place..

Recently locked my keys in my car and called Platts because they were local. Waited 40 minutes, took the guy only a minute to unlock and was charged $79.50. Outrageous. I didn't even pay that much in Madison.

AAA PLatt's Garage is highly recommended by our family. Our daughter was stranded on the side of 94 just outside of the Dells and we called Platt's. They came to get her, reassured her she was safe and had the needed part on the shelf. They had her back on the road in 90 minutes and did not overcharge us for the services. Thank you so much!

Platts was very helpful when my daughter's car broke down 3 hours from home. They went right away, helped her, and reassured her that she was safe. They had the part instock and fixed the car in under 90 minutes, without over charging us. It was very reassuring to know there are companies like Platt's that you can trust.
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.
