Bruce Silverson of Hilltop Autopro in White Rock, B.C. had to use his diplomatic skills when a customer brought in a 2002 Mazda Protege with a complaint of “spongey brake pedal.” When they lifted the car, they found out there was good reason for the sponginess, as this shot shows.
“The car required pads, callipers, and rotors on all four corners. It also had two blown struts,” he says.
That, combined with other damage and the age of the vehicle, left little hope for the vehicle.
“We convinced the customer to crush the car!” he writes.
