Was driving through Springfield Ill en route to North Wisconsin with my wife and my 5 week old daughter. A few days prior I had replaced a faulty wheel bearing on my Pontiac and expected all to be fine. Unfortunately, even being really experienced with car repair, I under torqued a caliper bracket bolt. Well, I noticed something awry around 2 hrs into my drive, and I decided to get off on the Springfield exit and check it out... noisy suspension on bumps was the primary problem. Well, turns out when I get on the off-ramp and hit the brakes I've got a VERY bad shake/shimmy on the front end. I coasted as long as I could and used the E-brake to slow the car down and limp the 1mile or so to the nearest shop @ 5mph. I walked into Midas and the receptionist was very nice, the mechanic (Tony) took the wheels off and found that my drivers side brake caliper bracket was currently being held on by one bolt. He charged me .35 cents for a bolt out of the tool box, and re-torqued everything for me (at my request) and send me on my way within an hour. The receptionist chatted with my wife the entire time , and Tony let me come into the shop and see what was going on. Best visit to a mechanic I've ever had. I walked out 35 dollars lighter, and feeling like we just stopped to hang out with some friends. I just felt like a dolt for not double checking my torque settings... Go see Tony @ Midas Springfield, honest, nice guy, won't do you wrong!
