They work on their Trials Bikes, NOT Your Vehicle!
Had my Brakes done here several yrs. ago. They had my SUV for 6 days, told me Initial Cost of a "Complete Front/Back job" was $700, but charged $880 at pick-up.
They had used the SUV for a "Parts-Pick-Up vehical, and "someone" even drove it HOME & Off-Road", as the Transfer-Case was stuck when I picked it up and the Odometer had 105 Miles on it. I reset the Tripometer, which was reset before I picked it up- at 19 miles. I had written down the miles when I dropped it off, but they are Sooo Much Smarter than a 5th Grader- HA!
They charged me $360 for a $140 Master Cylinder, told me all of the Brake components that they Replaced- "Supposedly" were OEM components- But, I had to get the Brakes done Professionally, 3 weeks later- since the OWNER could not look me in the eyes while he LIED to me about "Why there is nothing Wrong with the $1200 Brake Job- although the vehical would not stop worth a dang!
I paid a Professional $700 to repair/replace the JOB that SPIT-In-Your-Face-Fire did, and even got to watch (which Spitfire lets nobody do???) as the "Tech" removed Rotors, Calipers and Wheel Cylinders, ALL which were Paid for as NEW OEM, but Not Replace, just rebuilt. The calipers were STILL STICKING, the Rotors were Paid as NEW, but Turned down to PAST the SAE Specs, and the Brake Fluid was as brown as Coffee. CROOKS! The ONLY NEW components on the vehicle were the $360 Master Cylinder , the CHEAPEST Brake Pads in the Valley, and their Finger Prints on my vehical. $1580 in all. It DOES COST MORE to repair a Screwed-Up job, than to start Fresh!
If I had time, I would have reported them to the BBB & Consumer Affairs. We were in the middle of Vacation, then a Move. Steer-Clear of the Crooked Little shop on Indian School, just east of 48th Street, on the S. Side of Indian School. 50/50% chance OR LESS that you'll make it out of there with Honest work done on your vehicle and have it last as long as the Standard SAE Specs say it should. Plus, you may even see your vehicle on the road while it is "Supposedly" being worked on?
Ask Questions, get feedback from FRIENDS, and be careful. Most Of All, We MUST START reporting these Crooked Co.'s to the BBB & Consumer Affairs. I kick myself in the butt for "MY" neglect.
