What Are Common Signs Of Brake Wear?
There are several noticeable signs that the brakes in a vehicle may be showing signs of wearing. One of the most obvious signs of brake wear is a brake pedal with a spongy or low feeling. This usually indicates that air is present in the hydraulic system. There may be an imbalance in the brake system when the red brake-warning light appears. The presence of an amber brake-warning light is usually related to a problem with the ABS system. Brake pad or shoe replacement is usually required when a continuous squealing or grinding sound is heard.
Brian sounded honest and straightforward, and I found nothing but positive comments and a great BBB rating.
Susan Currington of Jupiter Florida
"I was about 100 miles from home when my transmission failed. Rick Case Honda quoted 5 days and $5,300 for a re-manufactured transmission and a new computer, which they said was 'totally messed up.' They even told me they'd have a salesman call me about some great deals on new cars. No thanks. I started calling other transmission shops, and got more and more confused. Some sounded great, but had tons of online customer complaints and bad Better Business Bureau ratings. Then I called Brian at Transmission Doctor. Brian sounded honest and straightforward, and I found nothing but positive comments and a great BBB rating. I had my car towed to Transmission Doctor and they fixed it for about half of what Rick Case wanted, in only two days. And they didn't try to sell me a new computer that I didn't need - or a new car!! I'm really glad I found Transmission Doctor. "

When looking for a mechanic you want honesty, quality work, and affordablity and Brian gives you all of this.

Steve L of North Lauderdale Florida
"Last year I bought a used car and boy did this car have problems. I first found Brian because this is the only Transmision shop with an A+ rating with the BBB, and I definately can see why they have an A+ rating, The first job he did was rebuild my transmission he was very reasonable did quality work and offered the best warranty of any Transmission place I could find he also did it very quickly, which was an added bonus. Did I mention the Transmission still works great!... now on to the next problem I have a 2002 Saturn or should I call it a Stall-urn... in anycase this problem is a bit complicated to diagnose especially since it didn't report an error code most of the time.... Brian could've just started replacing parts and charging me mega amounts of money... but he didn't, instead he took the time to make sure something was broke before he fixed it, he has saved me so much money that he makes every other mechanic I've ever been to look bad..... I feel like he is part of the family. When looking for a mechanic you want honesty, quality work, and affordablity and Brian gives you all of this. I have told everyone I know about this place and that is the best compliment you can get.....Thank you Brian for being so great"
To my surprise from the moment I arrived I was treated with respect and given a fair estimate. I have to say I expected a bottom rate job because of the estimate. I could not have been more wrong.
Vanessa Croteau of Wellington Florida
"As a single mom, I was expecting to walk in and get taken advantage of. It was not the first place I had gone too. To my surprise from the moment I arrived I was treated with respect and given a fair estimate. I have to say I expected a bottom rate job because of the estimate. I could not have been more wrong. My truck runs AMAZINGLY. And they went above and beyond to keep me up to date on the status of my truck and two follow up calls to make sure I was happy and my truck was running well. I would recommend Transmission Doctor to all my friends & family. THANK YOU! "
I will be happy to tell a friend or family member about the good work you do at the Transmission Doctor!

Brian is extremely honest with a great personality I've at least three vehicles to him since and have never been disappointed.
Lauderdale Lakes Florida
Perry Nicholas of Lauderdale Lakes Florida
"I'm like one other person I don't have the time or patience to post but reading these comments I had to say something. Almost 10yrs ago I took 1992 Mazda to his shop he ended up replacing the computer for one third the cost. It took him several days but he didn't stop until he found the actual problem. Brian is extremely honest with a great personality I've at least three vehicles to him since and have never been disappointed. "
I would definitely use him again and/or recommend him to friends and family.
Bill L of Tamarac Florida
"I brought my 2002 Dodge Intrepid to Brian, et.al. because I knew it needed serious transmission work and I wanted it looked at by someone that specializes in that work. Very responsive and understanding. He paid attention and explained it all as I asked him. Very professional. Three times in and each time he made the deadline he proposed. I would definitely use him again and/or recommend him to friends and family."
