San Francisco Automotive Solutions
My Subaru Legacy GT had severely warped rotors after a mere 30K miles and and I had brought my car to San Francisco Automotive Solutions as I assumed the rotors were bad, considering the low mileage on my car and how I have been very mindful about checking the brake pad thickness. After verifying the rotors were in fact warped, Pat explained how this is very common with Japanese performance cars because of how the rotors are engineered to be light for fuel economy and therefore marketing greenwashing rather than for longevity. When I consider the energy required to make steel I shudder to think how someone who purports to be eco-minded would make this call, but I digress. After replacing them with better grade but still reasonably priced rotors I found that after 9 months they were already starting to warble and I brought the car back assuming they had already warped. Sigh. Much to my surprise, He replaced them with the more expensive rotors that had features to help better prevent the warping in the future, and only charged me the difference in the part price! This is the kind of treatment that has kept me a customer of AAA for over 6 years and through 2 cars. I would stick my neck out to say this is a great shop with skilled and trustworthy people and that Pat is a man of integrity and runs his shop in kind.
