Went in for a checkup before a long road trip. Mechanic explained that the front pads were worn and should be replaced. When I asked if he was going to replaced the rear shoes, he said "If you want, but they don't need replacement.". Before I purchased my pickup I was driving a 1982 BMW 320i with over 175,000 miles on it. I say "over" because that's when the odometer died. The car would not pass emissions. I took it in for repair after the local BMW dealership said the "tune-up" would be $400. Summit replaced four rubber gaskets that fit around the fuel injectors and hold them in the head. For about $45, and the car ran better than it had ever before (I had owned it about two years.) Refered a friend there after he had tried to have an alignment done to an old Mazda RX7 that Town Fair Tire said they could not do because the adjustments for the front end were rusted/frozen and could not be loosened. Summit Auto found out that the certified (certifiable ???) at the tire shop were trying to unscrew the side of the car that had left-handed threads. I think they charged him $10 or so. They even called the "specialist" (yea, he was special all right) at the tire shop and explained that the car had left and right handed threads in the front end adjustments. All in all, a couple of good honest wrench doctors.

Very routine maintenance done at the shop (lube, oil, filter), only commenting because the price was surprisingly high for what was done.
