More than expected. I was advised to replace rotors & drums along with pads & shoes. Hard to believe but I saw the parts. The truck set in a barn last winter and water game in under bay door. After paying for a $1500 brake job, I installed a channel drain. Brakes work well. Expensive lesson though.

Front brakes were grabbing.

I use to think that I needed to trust mechanics with exotic car brand on their shingles. Trust me, you can trust J&L. These guys are great and they are car guys. I will bring them all my cars. These guys gave me something I haven't had in a long time, and that is to drive my 29 year old Porsche with confidence. They are attentive, experts, good at everything, and car guys! Thank you Angie's List f...

I am moving here from CT, and felt something funny in the way my clutch was working. I used Angie's list to find a good shop, and when I read the reviews for J&L, I thought it was too good to be true. In summary, the people at this shop lived up to every good review I read. They were extremely kind and professional. When I called, they told me to bring the car the next day and they would look at i...

I went to Angie's List to look for other automotive repair shops and found J & L. I called when I was able to start the car and asked if I could bring it in that afternoon (Friday) while it was still running. Shad (you have a GREAT telephone voice by the way) told me up front that they probably wouldn't be able to look at it until Tuesday morning. I appreciated the honesty as the other repair shop...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The folks at J & L Auto Service found two loose connections in the electric system of my S-Type Jaguar that had been causing various problems. For example, the automatic parking brake would sometimes not release causing delays while I tried (often 2 to 3 times) to release it manually. I had taken the car to another repair shop where they reconfigured something never precisely named on the invoice. The cost just for that service was $115, and I was told that the crank sensor would need to be replaced soon or the car would not start reliably. This did, in fact, occur about one week after the repair. I didn't really have much confidence in that repair shop at that point even though they had serviced the car for the past 4 years.

After searching Angie's List, I decided to use J & L Auto Service to repair my daughter's Jeep Wrangler.  Their website was great, even allowing for online appointments.  Chad and Gabe were terrific.  They called to explain the parts that needed to be replaced to fix the air conditioning and the brakes.  It seemed like so much to complete, but they finished everything by the next morning.  When we...
