I <3 Auto Dynamik! Twice now they've saved me $:
The first time, my brakes started squeaking intermittently. Hami checked the pads and determined that they were *not* in need of changing. He told me although he could refinish the rotors to (probably) get rid of the squeak, it wasn't necessary, nor would it improve my braking (which was actually working fine, despite the noise).
More recently, the maintenance light came on. Hami checked it out and again determined the car didn't actually need anything more than an oil change.
Yay for an honest mechanic!
