I went to Cy's after reading reviews over at Car Talk. \r
Cy replaced my rear brakes for a very reasonable price. He was very straightforward with everything and told me exactly what to expect. He called me with the exact amount before completing the job. The brake pads he bought came with a lifetime warranty and he directly passed that on to me unlike most other places I know.\r
Every other place I went to, they started off by telling me a brake job could go realllly bad and as high as 2000 dollars. \r
I would go back to Cy. After all, it is really tough to find a good mechanic.
Pros: Great service, answers questions, explains everything, low cost
Cons: location is hard to find
