These guys deserve your business, 9/29/2008

I'm 60 and used to build hot rods when I was in my early 20's, so I know a thing or two about cars. When I try a shop I just let them tell me whatever they want to and many times it's a hustle. Not... so at the Brake Depot on Rosecrans. Angel and his crew are good guys - honest, trustworthy and experts in most all automotive repair work. When the suspension in my 740i BMW got twisted I took it to them and they had me back on the road in 2 hours!!! The repair involved removing the emergency brake cable, the brake calipers, draining the brake fluid, detaching the shock/ spring assembly and the axle, then replacing the bent control arm and putting everything back together... a perfect job in only 2 hours!!!

This Guy Is Great

Two words describe it all Honest and trustworthy. Angel and Al both worked with me to get my car fixed right. Another shop in town gave me an outrageous quote and a laundry list of so-called problems. At Brake Depot I got the truth and a much lower estimate. As Angel says, they only recommend what's needed to fix or keep the car running properly. I've been converted. I'll never go anywhere else again.

Will get you out of a pickle

Angel and the guys at Brake Depot are the best. They will get you out of pickle when your car decides it's not going to work with you. Their prices are reasonable and they are very dependable. These guys can work on cars ranging from old ones to new ones and they can do it all, not just brakes. Give them a call if you need to get your car looked at they know what they are doing.
