 David E. Delong: Hi Marvin, I made an appointment for 9:30 Monday morning and look forward to an honest assesment of our Chevy Cruze front brakes. I know front pads need replacing. I am driving from Southington Ct for service because of your very good reputation and reviews. Thanks in advance for your professionalism. Dave and Ellen Delong from my iPhone

My wife was told by the Acura dealer where we bought our 2014 MDX that it needed front brakes immediately with a cost of $350.  I took the car to your shop in Bridgeport and after inspection your honest people told me the brakes were fine. It is nice to know there are still some businesses and people who are honest and have integrity.  Thank you BCA, I will be back.

Based on reviews I drove down  first thing from Waterbury last Saturday. Emilio and his staff were very friendly, explained what could be done, and got me out and rolling quickly at a far lower cost than what I expected. This is excellent customer service and well worth the drive. 


Hi Richard. Thank you for the compliments, what you will really be happy about will be in 4 - 5 years when you look back and find that you receive many years of safe and problem free braking.We are very fortunate to have such great guys working for us.

Comments: Bill, I wanted to let you know of the totally professional experience I had at your Bridgeport location this past Monday.  Your manager, Marvin, went out of his way to explain what was wrong with my brakes, to recommend a solution and to get the job done to my satisfaction.  Actually, it was to his satisfaction first as one of the technicians noted that the first repair was not all that was needed that day.  I continue to be very impressed by the services rendered and competent, professional way it is done.  You and your team are the best; you have a customer for life.

Dear Bill, Just a quick note to tell you that Emilio and his staff  did a real good job for us yesterday and today.
Although there were appointment customers ahead of us, he got the car in, gave us a prudent estimate of price and expected repair time.
He explained every thing in a concise way and the car was ready when he said it would be.
Upon my arrival to pick the car up, he greeted me by name and explained about the enhanced warranty if I agreed to keep a bumper sticker on the car rear bumper.
Man, I’d wear a T-shirt if you gave them out too.  This is my kind of customer care and service. Thanks a bunch, Dan Lenhart

He is truly an honest, responsible businessman, and a pleasure to do business with. I feel safe when Bill takes care of my car. I have sent my friends and family to his businesses. - Dawn Patalack


Hi Bill, I just wanted to let you know that I went to the store this morning at 7:50 AM, the store was open and they were all set to take in and inspect my car. Unfortunately, nothing needed to be done. After the initial inspection, I was asked to come in and see what was found in both rear and front brakes, nothing! The drums were ok and no leaking master cylinders, the front disk pads had normal wear but didn’t warrant replacing yet and both rotors were ok too. So, unfortunately, I couldn’t give you any business today. I hope you didn’t get the guys to work early for nothing! Maybe they thought they were going to be on the ‘Undercover Boss’ show? (lol) I did explain that I was going on a trip to Niagara Falls in late May and that’s one reason why I wanted to have the brakes inspected and repaired if necessary. The other reason is with 62,2K miles, I don’t know when the last brake repair job was done, which must’ve been done at some point as I don’t think I could go have the car driven that far without one. I know I’m easy on my brakes, but even still. Also, I asked about the $50 Gift Certificate and was told that if I had the brakes repaired, I could have a 10% discount or the $50 discount, whichever was better, but not exceeding $50 either way; which is great nevertheless! So that gift certificate is for general public use! – Just not to be combined with any other offer! Excellent! Additionally, and as always, the staff all exceeded my expectations for friendliness, advice, courtesy, and respect and customer service! I will be back! Have a great day! Tom

I wanted to let everyone know that I had a wonderful experience at Bridgeport Brake Center. I was very pleased with the honesty and even more, the time the service person took to explain what was and wasn't needed to be done. I went in on a Friday afternoon around 3pm, I respect the fact that the guys weren't trying to rush me out of there on a Friday. Anyone who likes to save money should try going to visiting any of there locations. I made an appointment to take our Honda Odyssey in next week for a break check and oil change.
I look forward to the same satisfying experience of knowing we are receiving the highest quality.
Thanks for all your honesty, Peter Vicente

Good morning Bill, I do a lot of emailing and I have to say my email to you yesterday was by far one of the best. I called Joe this morning, he had a bay waiting for me along with new pads. in and out in less than an hour, price was great(nice discount). No more squeaking and it feels like it drives better. Thanks again for the quality service and please pass that along to your Stamford guys, a pat on the back goes along way. If you ever need anything in the patio department please give me a call. Chris oh ya, my wife's Jag will be dropped tomorrow morning for brake service.

Love Bill and Brake Centers. Although brakes may have been a specialty all auto repairs have been excellent. Exceptional Service at a very fair price. Would recommend to anyone!! Hank Andersen 

Comments: I just got back from having my front and rear brakes replaced on my car. I went to Bpt and Marvin was amazing!  He looked at my car while I waited, gave me an incredible quote, and I came back later in the day to have my work done.  I was in and out in 1 hour.  Marvin was polite, and so professional.  I had gotten 2 quotes from other places to replace my brakes, and Brake Centers quote was 50% less!  Plus, I was told I needed rotors from the other 2 places, which I did not need.  Run to this place for your brakes!  You will not be disappointed!!!!

Chris S. Joe's been with the company for 9 years. Polite, knowledgeable and seems honest. Charged me for new pads - $160, when Midas wanted over $1,000 to replace four pads, four rotors, bleed the lines, new calipers.
Truth was the pads and rotors were still good. Midas (in Norwalk, near Merritt 7) pressed me to get over $1,000 worth of work done. Joe inspected my brakes and told me to come bak in 3-4,000 miles. When I did he replaced the pads. Nothing else. Trust this place with your car.

  - GREAT SERVICE I've been to the location twice; GREAT service and very reasonable prices. PLEASE open a full service shop i.e. not just brakes! 


You should put up a billboard saying how often brakes should be serviced, and your prices! Most people have no idea how often to get it done and ignore it till it complains... Regards, Nick

We spoke on the phone last week before I went to your location on Wednesday. It was a positive experience and I wanted to thank you. The two mechanics were polite and efficient, they clearly explained everything to me, and now with new front brakes my car feels much safer than before. The mechanics did also tell me that the rear brakes were getting low, but I held off on replacing them for now. I have 2 children, a one and four year old, and my time for a minivan is right around the corner.

Johanna Dorgan Bill -Thank you again for excellent service and very fair prices. The honesty and integrity of Brake Centers is unsurpassable, not to mention the courteous and knowledgable service from Wayne at the Bridgeport store. I highly recommend this business to anyone, especially women who don't have much savvy about brakes and other mechanical work, you can count on them to be honest & reliable. I've recommended them to several friends and everyone has been completely satisfied. On a scale of 1 to 10....Brake Centers is an 11!!! Johanna Dorgan

So again, thank you and your staff of Brake Centers of America. I feel that I received a quality brake repair at a fair price. I would be happy to recommend them to any of my friends. Sincerely, Henry Moore

Hi, Bill.  I was talking to my mom on Saturday and told her how we connected via e-mail and when I told her your name, she realized that she was your son's pre-school teacher at A Child's Garden in Fairfield!  She still has the ornament that your family gave her one year for Christmas. 
I didn't realize that Matt upgraded me to the ceramic pads.  I know he gave my husband, Ron, two prices and we were only able to do the semi-metallic.  That was so very nice and much appreciated.  I was very impressed with how professional Matt was.  I will recommend your company to all my family and friends without hesitation.  Thanks again for being so kind.  .   .   .

The $50. off was a great added bonus!!

 Bill Pelletier, Good afternoon. I am a recent customer of your shop. I brought my 96 F150 in to have 2 broken studs replaced. While my brakes were good, the caliper clips were a little worn and stretched. They were usable but upon re-assembly your employee Jamie noticed they were a little noisy. He put the truck on the lift 3 seperate times between test drives to remedy the problem. I appreciate his dedication and pride in a job well done. This shop is one of a few that I would highly recommend to friends and family.
Thank you Jamie. Erik derossi

Hi, I would just like to tell you about the experience i had at the Brake Center today. I had two flat tires, I changed one of them then drove my car there since i live 2 minutes away,to see of they could repair the other tire since it was not yet all the way flat. Can I just tell you how impressed I was with the people that were working there. They were the most helpful and nicest people I have ever dealt with. They plugged both my tires quickly, were extremly friendly, they went above and beyond even gluing a piece of paneling that was loose on my car while they were fixing the tires, they put the spare back in my car and put the jack and everything else back nicely in my car even though they didnt have to. I will definitely use this place again for brakes or tires. Your lucky to have good employees working for your business. Thank you Danielle

I just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased and satisfied with the past experience I had regarding the integrity and quality of the brake service received, the honesty and time of the serviceperson to explain what was and was not needed to be done, and just how I was treated as a person with respect and courtesy.

I am now coming back to this office again for brake service with not just my car, but two additional family member cars. And that is important to me! That not only do I feel confident in the service for myself, but that I would recommend this office to anyone else, especially my family, because I trust the Brake Centers to give them the same quality work that I originally received.

I look forward to the same satisfying experience of knowing that my family is receiving the highest quality and integrity of both service and materials from Brake Centers.  Respectfully yours, Tom Heinrich

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the quick answer. I took a chance and stopped by today and am very glad i did. Carlos and his associate took excellent care of me even though it was close to closing. They sent out for the needed brake parts and did a quick job for me. I am impressed and you have a new customer for life. I will be back soon to replace my rear tires and will schedule my future oil changes at your store. Please thank your wonderful employees for me!
Al Heinlein

Last week I brought my cars in for brake service and again was not disappointed.
Al and company treated my daughter and I with the same courtesy and respect as previously received and with no less their professionalism, integrity and guarantee of brake service and parts. It is very much appreciated that they take their time to explain the post-service break-in period, type of brake parts used and why and time of brake warrantee, recommendations for what is required and what needs to be done even when it's not a service they can provide, i.e. an alignment after a tie-rod replacement, and them just working with you in general to ensure you understand and are satisfied with what's going to be done ahead of time; with the work and the out-the-door price.
And then to receive a follow-up call from Al to ensure I am satisfied with the brake work and that everything is ok with the cars, well you just can't beat customer service like that!
I walk away knowing that I respect and trust these servicepersons for their integrity and quality of brake service, and that I do, have, and will continue to be a loyal customer and recommend this store to everyone.
This store is excellent! Thank you in all honesty


Hi Bill, I had such a great experience last time, I have another vehicle that needs brakes.  It is a 2006 Subaru Tribeca.  It currently needs front brake pads (20%).  I like the ceramic on the minivan, so I wish to go with those on the Subaru.  Thursday or Friday morning would be good for me if you have any openings.  Let me know. Thanks in advance, Lon Harrigan

Thank You Bill,
I had an opportunity to plug you and Brake Centers of America today on my blog as an alternative to getting your oil changed at Posh in light of their recent chemical dumping practices. It's the least I can do for being inexpensive enough for me to not have to do oil changes and brake jobs in my driveway anymore.
There's a link to your brake site. If you want me to change the page that I link to or the text of the link let me know and I will do that for you. Here's the link.  Thanks, Scott Jenkins

Hi Bill, I went to your Bridgeport store last week for brake service (Thursday?) @ 2:40pm and
they apologized and said they were booked the rest of the day and invited to come back
the next morning. I said I live in Darien and said that I'd prefer not to go to Stamford.
That's when the Manager or Technician told me about the Norwalk Brake Center store.
I asked if they would please see if they could take me that day, so they
phoned the store and told them that I'd be coming.
It worked out, so I thought I'd commend your men and tell you.

Dear Mr. William Pelletier:
I brought my car to your Brake Center shop on Tuesday to have my front brakes fixed (and am told that I need new back brakes also).  I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how professional Matt was in describing what was wrong and what was needed to repair it.  There was another employee there at the time but I did not get his name, they were both very courteous.

I hope this finds you and your family well.  I was in your shop recently and will head back tomorrow with another vehicle that I suspect is due for pads all around.  Here is my dilemma.  I have a coupon (big green postcard) for Brake Centers that is for $20/wheel with "no expiration".  I feel guilty presenting it as it is obviously "dated" and you are the most honorable and most community minded local business person I support.  You do not take advantage of your customers and I do not want to take advantage of you.  So, what would be an appropriate price for four pads (ceramic) for my 2006 Altima? Thank for your time and your service. Michael Spiesman

Best brake pads and best brake rotors combined with expert and friendly service is key to the best brakes experience that we provide.
