I had some major work done on my pickup. Duane went above and beyond to accommodate me, he did a great job and the price was competitive. I highly recommend Forged by Fago!
I have been having my car serviced at Forged By Fago since I met Duane for over a year now. Every visit has built more confidence as the work is professionally done with thoroughness and skill. An honest mechanic is hard to find and brings considerable peace of mind. Nice to know I have found one.

Remember the automatic seatbelts?! What’s your favorite safety feature that your modern vehicle has? Mine is traction control... in icy conditions, my traction control has engaged many times where I would’ve been sideways had I been driving an older vehicle without this safety feature. ...
Did you know that your the parking brake ALSO serves as your emergency brake and can be used if your normal stopping power is compromised. With the road salt from Minnesota winters, it is not uncommon for us to find rusted/broken brake lines and severely diminished braking on MN vehicles. If you’ve ever found yourself pushing the brake pedal only to feel it go limp and straight to the floor (because a rusty brake line just broke), the importance of your emergency brake just became that much more evident since it could’ve been used as a secondary brake! It seems evident that you’ll want your emergency brake operational when you need it most. However, most drivers disregard their parking brake and never use it. Aside from causing undue wear inside the transmission 😬, neglecting to regularly use the parking brake can lead to premature parking brake component failure (it’s a “use it or lose it” type situation). So our recommendation is to regularly use your parking brake so that it remains functional as an emergency brake and can be trusted when you need it most. Back to that “use it or lose it” thing... The first photo above is of parking brake shoes that are severely corroded to the extent that the emergency/parking brake would not have worked if the driver needed them.
