Depending on what kind of car you have, it may utilize between 4 - 8 brake pads. When you step on the brake pedal, your car's master cylinder sends fluid under pressure to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, causing friction that slows down the car. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads wear out and become thinner. If the thickness of brake pads is less than a quarter of an inch, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive, brake pads usually last between 35,000 - 40,000 kilometers. Some vehicles (e.g. BMW’s, Mercedes', etc) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system to notify you when is the right time to have your brake pads replaced. In these situations, the brake sensors will also be replaced as part of the brake pad service.
A rotor is a part of a vehicle's braking system. It is roughly shaped like a flat-bottomed bowl with a wide lip at the top. The design of the rotor allows the heat produced by this process to be evenly dispersed throughout the braking system so it does not overheat.
Maintaining the brakes is one of the most important safety features for any vehicle owner and is key to a vehicles upkeep for long term ownership. Unfortunately, brake maintenance is often overlooked by drivers. Maintaining the cars brake system can help to prevent costly repairs in the long run, and can keep the car in the best form to avoid a collision. Furthermore, if this damage is not addressed, it can progress to the point that the brakes are ineffective and might totally fail, putting the vehicle and its occupants in danger.
Fiix has done it again! I have had the opportunity and pleasure of calling on Fiix twice now. The first time was a basic tire change, while I was sitting on my couch! It doesn't get any better than that. The second time was for my brake pads and rotor replacement. Fiix is so convenient for a busy person like myself. I was making dinner while Jamel (my assigned mechanic) was Fiix(ing) my car! It was great, I was even asking questions (because I am curious like that) and Jamel was patient and very knowledgeable! To me, customer service starts even before you walk into the door of a store; its how you are treated from the start to finish of the transaction. At around 8pm (after work is most convenient, and yes they cater to that!) I got a call from Jamel letting me know hes on his way to my place to Fix my car, he asked me if I wanted him to bring me a coffee and gave me a time that he would be there. The quality of work really shows as well! Fiix used brand new parts that they opened in front of me, as opposed to other mechanics who do their work in the back so you don't know what they are using! I've had a very positive experience and I will continue to use them for all my car mechanic needs! Five Stars and Two Thumbs UP!
I had great service from Peter at Fiix on my Mini Cooper today. Peter arrived early and prepared. He was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend Peter and Fiix. They are definitely the Uber of Mechanics.
Easy online scheduling of a complete brake job for my car ... in my underground parking spot! I was very happy to see that the quote was about 50% less than my Lexus dealership charged me the last time. Then I just sat back and worked until I got the call that he was done. WOW. I called them the very next day to repair a headlight. It really doesn't get much better than this. I've told 4 other people already. Killer service.
Excellent service. I'm very impressed.

This is the most amazing service that I've ever encountered in the automotive industry. Fiix is time/money saving, convenient and gives you peace of mind. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone!!! I love it and will definitely be a returning customer! It just can't get any better
I've used Fiix for three repairs now. Simply awesome mechanics, seamless experience, great convenience - great all around. Highly recommended. I've used other similar services too, but Fiix has an edge over them with their great mechanics and great web interface.
