Title

Gimme’ a Brake — On My Car, That Is!

Description

We all know the importance of good braking for safe driving, but when the brakes need serviced, why does it have to be such a mystery and so expensive? Are they just scaring us into a more costly repair than is necessary? Why can’t someone explain it in simple terms so I know what to expect? Len will do exactly that. With some basic understanding, you will be prepared for what you might need and what questions you should ask. Let’s eliminate the mystery and remove the anxiety of dealing with your car’s brakes. Let’s save that stress for when your kids start to drive. I can’t help you there!

  • Former auto mechanic - 8 years
  • Former auto repair shop owner - 6 years
  • Currently General Manager of an Advance Auto Parts retail store - 5 years
  • As a lifelong “gear head” and auto enthusiast, together with my son, we have owned and repaired go karts, motorcycles and too many cars and trucks to count.
