What can I say, fast and friendly service. He comes to you without the long wait at a car shop.
Levar Stephens
I called Joe to fix the air conditioning in my 2001 Cavalier last year and haven't looked back! Today he ran a diagnostic on our new-to-us 2006 Sedona. I will never be calling another mechanic! Joe is honest, highly knowledgeable, friendly, and fair. I feel more at ease, knowing that I can depend on a quality mechanic to do timely, quality work conveniently from my driveway and at a fraction of the price that I would pay at a less reputable shop. Thank you for everything, Joe!
Lorraine Cox
Joe has done body work on my Jaguar twice both times to perfection. In addition, he did it in less than half of the time of the big body shops. Joe is a perfectionist and it shows in his work. He takes great pride in what he does and he is extremely customer friendly.
Vic Pascucci
Joe, me and my family would like to thank you for getting the a/c in our truck fixed as fast as you did. I never met a mechanic that cared as much as you did to make sure the a/c was done correctly and we were taken care of. Not only did he get us the parts (Another place would have used refurbished parts, not Joe) but he got us all brand new parts. Me and my family found a mechanic that we can use for life . Thank you Joe
Sal Bilotta
Joe is not your average Mechanic, he does care about his customer's safety. He ensures that the job is done right. Joe is a great guy!

Wether day or night, rain or shine you can count on Joe to come out and tell you what’s wrong with your vehicle. Sometimes it’s nothing and he’ll tell you n/c. Catch you next time. Even on Sundays. Honest reliable service at a very competitive rate. I highly recommend him. You’ll recommend him too once you’ve used his service.
Richie Sanvenero
I have used Joe as my go to guy for all of my car issues as well as my daughter's car issues. He is reliable and will follow up. From my older Mustang (now my oldest daughter's car) to a PT Cruiser (my youngest daughter's car), he has built trust that I feel is invaluable in a mechanic.

Joe was great! Had a car emergency with my daughters fuel pump on sat afternoon, and he was the only mobile mechanic who responded! He was very knowledgeable, upfront and honest. He had us ready to go in no time! Thank you Joe for getting my daughter back on the road.
I got my brakes and a/c service by him with super-fast and professional results. He's very knowledgeable, and professional. I already booked another appointment with him for more services, I highly recommend him!
I was truly amazed, I am one of those people who is hard to satisfy. But, Joseph impressed me and I can say I am 110% satisfied with his work. He was Professional, Extremely knowledgeable, and well prepared to fix my 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette . He did a lot of work on my van completed the work in an extremely timely manner . He used quality parts and his prices are more than reasonable. It's nice to know that there are still HONEST & TRUSTWORTHY mechanics in the world. I am going to recommend Joseph to all my family and friends. He is absolutely wonderful. God Bless you Joseph and Thank You so much.

I was driving to work Monday morning in plenty of time to get to my NEW job when I got a flat tire. I pulled into a parking lot and just minutes later Joe appeared and offered to help. He gave me his business card and said he would have me on my way in 5 minutes! He is amazing!
Pam Johnson
 I had called last minute on a Saturday morning and to my surprise Joe showed up within the half hour. The first thing you will notice when contacting gimmeabrake is the top notch customer service that I'm sad to say it's hard to find these days. Joe was not only efficient but educated as well on the ins and outs of the vehicle braking system. I will definitely be calling Joe again and i highly recommend gimme a brake.
Walter Santiago
So thankful for Joe and Gimme A Brake! He came to my office and checked out my car so I could stay working instead of waste my day at an auto repair shop. Joe was honest with me about what repairs I should and shouldn't do given the age of my car. It is nice to have peace of mind when dealing with my car. Great service and Joe is great as well!
Deb Weaver
Ever since the first time I saw Joe's card (it was given to me at auto zone when my car broke down at a gas station on my way to work at 5:00 pm) he has been an amazing find. He came to where I was that night and fixed me up in the auto zone parking lot. Since that night my wife and I have been using him for all of our auto repair/maintenance needs. Honest and reliable, is a rare find these days, and Joe is definitely both.
Nelson Paine
Gimme A Brake Auto Repair was a miracle that I found. First he is a great Mechanic with good prices . Second he is honest and gives you the straight answers on what you need done and does what he says. In all my years I have never found a more trustworthy mechanic who responds to your needs. He calls you to let you know when he is coming and he shows up on time and gets the job done without the car being down a long time. If you are looking for a mechanic look no further than Gimme A Brake Auto/ Repair. You will not regret it and you will enjoy the quality of work and professionalism. Definitely would recommend him to anybody who needs repairs. Best thing I stumbled upon in years!

I  have been using Joe for over a year now. It was a happy accident that I saw his truck at Sam’s Club and gave him a call and he came out that day to do oil changes on my cars.

Today, Joseph came out and helped me remove the transmission from my 3000GT. He was professional and courteous. He had it out of there in about 15-20 minutes for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend these guys.
