I have been going to Walter for many years. He always does a good job. My previous mechanic would put cheap brake shoes on the car and I had to get them replaced about once a year. Walter gave me a choice and I had him put on the higher quality ones. Didn't cost that much more and I did not have to replace the pads for over 3 years. He also saved me several hundred dollars on a transmission problem. I am sure most mechanics would have said to simply replace it. He did not. The problem was outside the transmission.
