It is unusual to find a honest and competent mechanic these days at any price. This is a small family-owned business that has been in the same spot forever; they are friendly, very knowledgeable, and their prices are more than fair. I give them very high marks. Maybe I should shut-up and keep them more of a secret, though I doubt this site gets enough traffic to make a difference. Oh, as their name implies, their specialty is brakes, and they fixed the screw-ups that a chain-store mechanic made. I also bought a couple of tires there for the same price as tirerack.com!

Before moving to Florida I lived in Maine. After several New England winters, the brakes on my 2001 Mazda were in less than optimum condition -- I am not very mechnanical, butI knew this because sometimes the car would not stop. The guys at Brakemaster did a increcible job, replacing and repairing parts all around and making everything as good as -- even better than -- new. They insisted on showing me the parts that were replaced and explaining why they had to be replaced instead of repaired. The New England road salt had eaten away the business end of the brake rotors and all but one caliper so it was pretty obvious that replacement was the only option. But I swear that these guys were almost in pain that they could not save the parts and were forced to replace them. It was as if they were spending their own money. I really can't imagine a better service situation. That these guys even exist is just a miracle ... and the other miracle is that my old Mazda didn't roll right thru their plate glass window when I used the last vestige of my one remaining brake to visit them. Oh by the way, they provide shuttle service too, which is a terrific convenience. And the cost was a lot less than I expected, and 1/2 of what the Mazda dealer quoted me. Need brake work? I can enthusiastically say that these are the guys to see.
