Great price
The price and quality of the part is great. I will only buy from 1AAuto from now on.
July 15, 2017
Was a little worried about the quality due to the kit being so cheap. But the rotors and breaks are great. No more screeching coming from my wheels. Definetly would buy from 1aauto again!

Quick and easy install brake kit
Anyone can replace their brakes with this kit. This was for my daughters car and 1A Auto made me a hero mechanic, once again. Thanks to 1A Auto!

Rotors and pads
Both the parts and the DIY A1 Auto video allowed me to save nearly $ 800. Thank you for providing great, affordable parts and videos that give step by step, detailed instructions! I used my iPAD as I did my breaks and rotors it took me less than 2 hours. Thank you! Tim Moore

Parts fit perfect
I bought rotors and pads all the way around for my 2003 cts. The pad guides fit perfect, the pads fit perfect, and rotors all installed without issue. My brake in test proved there was no difference from OEM. Stopped and able to activate ABS. NO NOISE. NO other abnormalities. I also bought my daughter front rotors and pads for her 2003 Ford focus. Perfect and as consistent as the hardware I put on the caddy. I would recommend 1aauto. Shipping fast and free. Instructions included. That is a plus.

Positive. Will refer.
Parts shipped quick. No issues during install. Happy with the outcome. Will be returning and referring.

Great deal
I highly recommend this product. Came with brake grease, of course the online YouTube video tutorial link, and I replaced all my brakes and rotors in about an hour thanks to 1AAuto. Rotors are genuine, brake pads are ceramic, overall great deal.
March 11, 2020
Did the full rotor/pad job on my daughters old Caddy last Saturday morning. Not only was every item in the kit perfect, but the delivery was immediate, the job was simple, and most of all, it allowed my daughter and me to spend the morning together. It was great just to be able to spend time with her. ...and the old Caddy is like new, now! Thanks! (...and the pricing was great!)
March 31, 2020
Perfect fit
Rotors pads and all hardware fit perfect. Videos on install were excellent. High quality parts at a great price.
April 20, 2020
Fast shipment & Quality parts
Parts were received exactly as promised. They fit perfectly and there were no installation issues. I purchased wheel hubs, rotors and brakes for a 2012 Equinox and have had the exact same service and quality parts delivered. Ill continue to shop 1AAuto for my future needs, The free shipping is a huge bonus for a DIYer since it saves a ton of money. Way to go 1AAuto!!
