They saved me about $300 in unecessary repairs on my 1992 ford escort GT. My car has over 265,000 miles and I have had the breaks serviced several times over the years. Each time I was told I had to have the rear calipers replaced as they had seized and they were unable to release the 'piston' to install the new pads. The typical precedure is to loosen a screw on the caliper which allows the piston to release, making room for the new, thicker pad to be installed. This is how it was explained to me over the years, anyway. The mechanic working on my car at Dr. Dan's recongnized the calipers on my car as being the same type as those found on a Ford Probe. He decided to try completely removing the screw rather than just loosening it. Sure enough, just as he suspected, below the screw there was another screw. This is the screw that must be loosened to release the piston. As he proceeded to turn this screw, the piston began to slide out, just like it's supposed to. This was the first break job as long as I've owned this car (since 1993 and 17,000 miles) that I didn't needelessly purchase new calipers when servicing my breaks.

I have been taking my cars to Dr Dan's for the past 10 years and have always been safisfied with their service. They have worked on my 2 plymouths, one ford, one mercury, dodge, chevy and pontiac. When I am considering a used car purchase I take it to Dan's for an inspection. They have saved me from making several purchasing mistakes. They go through vehicles with a fine tooth comb. When I take my vehicle in they tell me what repair is essential and must be done immediately, what can wait (and the consequences of doing so) and what is up to me to decide. If there is a cost saving but safe alternative they will volunteer that information without my asking. Dan Wilkerson, owner and his staff are completely honest!

They are very friendly and helpful! Unlike some other places I called around to, they weren't snooty, or gave you attitude because you were ignorant about cars. Being a girl I do have a fear that some mechanics will try and pull and fast one over my head, and they'd be able to get away with it. I wouldn't know the difference until later on that I was overcharged for just a spark plug or something. But they explained everything that was wrong with it, and any other concerns I had about my vehicle. They even pointed out my boot on the right tire was damaged when I had it repaired at a different shop back home about 2 months ago! Very helpful! Extremely curteous! And they even give a student discount!
