Last November, I got new rotors and pads from Ivan.
For the last month, the car has vibrated and pulsated when applying the pedal from a high speed.
He installed new rotors under warranty yesterday.

Why can't all mechanics be like this? Bless your heart.

I took a relative's 2005 Honda Pilot as it was making weird sounds. I was expecting to change some parts as it was an old car,
however, Ivan took us on a test drive and told me that it wasn't necessary to change the wheel barrings yet.
Upon return, he hoisted the car and did a further inspection for me to confirm (what he had thought) that it was due to the feathered tires
and no parts needed replacing. Ivan is truly one of a kind with his honesty and doesn't try to upsell anything. Thank you Ivan.

I've always just accepted whatever he quotes as I now trust that he's giving me a fair price. It's without question going to be less than a dealer, and when I did bother to shop around it was either on par or slightly less than the other shops in the area that are recommended. It's also happened where he has charged less than the original quote for one reason or another....just a testament to how honest he and his crew are.

No haggling. His prices are really good or on par with other preferred shops

Went there last wednesday to get new pads+rotors installed (i bought the parts from rockauto), and he only charged $150 to install them.

They work great.

+ They also dropped off my friends and I to the mall while they worked on the car and then picked us up when it was ready.
