  • I found Joe on craigslist. I brought my Honda over because I thought I needed some brake work. Joe is a little tricky to find but he is there with a helper working our of his garage. He is a certified mechanic now working as an independent contractor. Long story short on my car: they checked all four wheels and found I had plenty of wear left, suggested I check back in the fall.(this is being written in the spring). They topped up my brake fluid which was low and sent me on my way, after checking a few other things that commercial garages had said need replacing. Honest guy, sends me away, no work done, no charge. How do you like them apples?
