I’ll never tire of Jan Davis’ honesty and integrity

It's the day after the City Council elections and I don't know if Jan Davis has been voted in or not, but I had an experience today that cemented even more why he would be an excellent choice (again) for Asheville City Council.

A few weeks ago I was told by a local car dealer that I would need rear brakes within the next month, if not sooner, and he gave me a quote for the work. I appreciated this information, but stopped breathing for a moment when seeing the amount of the quote. I called Jan Davis Tire Store to get their price for the same work and was very excited to get a quote more than $200 less than the other. So I made my appointment at Jan Davis for the month-out time frame, which was Nov. 9.

I hadn't left my car at Jan Davis Tire 15 minutes before getting a call informing me that I did not need new brakes today — that it looked as though I have another 10,000 miles before needing them. They also checked a sensor I had blinking at me, checked my tire pressure and drove my car around the block for safe measure — and didn't charge me a cent. Honesty: that I can completely appreciate. What a way to run a business. Thanks Jan Davis Tire guys. You rock. And Jan, I do hope you got elected.
