CITY PAGES: Best Car Repair - Great Brakes

"Worku Moges, owner of University Avenue's Great Brakes, is something of a local celebrity. No, he doesn't pour drinks at the hot new bar, and he's never played with Prince. He's a one-of-a-kind mechanic, and that has gained him the accolades of drivers throughout the metro. He's been described as friendly, affordable, trustworthy, honest, efficient, ethical, helpful, and communicative. And he's been known to give a reliable recommendation for anything on a car he can't take care of himself, or even to show customers how to make a simple repair themselves. Like we said, he's one of a kind."
