Very Clean facility with nice people. My problem was that my tires are max 50 psi. I left for a long drive north of 4 hours, and the car wasn't handling well. It was only the next day that I realized that my tires were deflated to 29 psi. They are not stock tires.
I have talked with this customer. Their tires were overinflated causing premature tire ware and poor handling. This car is a Mazda Miata which is a very small car. The tires have a specific tire pressure that is written inside the drivers door. The max tire pressure is from the tire manufacturer stating the max pressure with a full load that the tire is designed to carry. This car manufacturer recognizes the max load vs the actual load this car puts on the tire and comes up with a tire pressure for this exact car. I put the tires at the manufacturer recommended tire pressure. So I am assuming if I overinflated the tire to 50 psi that the customer has put in there and they got in an accident due to the tires not performing properly then it I would have been at fault also. Interesting world we have. :)
Customer since 2018
Fair price, great work! I don't take my vehicles anywhere else.
Always a great experience wit Drake Auto. The team is clear about what needs to get done, and what can wait until the next visit. I drive 15 miles, past numerous service stations to have Drake Auto repair my families vehicles
We continue to have our car serviced at Drake Auto for the quality of the service and the integrity of the shop. We are never pressured for services/work that is not beyond the routine maintenance of a 12 year old car. Since we do limited driving, there is no desire to purchase a new vehicle - Drake Auto keeps are car running almost like new.
Dr. Misra is the best Chiropractor. He is so knowledgeable that feels like he has a magic touch. He knows and what to do and his diagnostics are very accurate.
I feel much better each time I visit him.
Also the his staff are very professional and friendly. I feel very comfortable as a patient while I am at their facility.
