I brought my 2010 Camaro SS to the dealer to get a quote for new brakes. They quoted my a total amount of $400, this was replacing the shoes and turning the rotors. I decided that I would take my car to another place to get a better price since we all know dealers are way higher. My dealer told me that my car only has 37K miles on it and the rotors do not need to be replaced just turned and the shoes replaced.
I took the car the Brake Check in Tomball because a family friend said that they do good work. I brought the car in and the very first thing they said was we recomend replacing the rotors...well of course they do, thats another $500.00. I asked them why...simple enough question. The manager said, I dont know they just dont recomend turning these rotors...funny the dealership didnt say that but I asked again, why.
He said...dont know, let me go ask the other manager. He came back inside and said, "He said we can turn the rotors" I said I thought thats what my dealer said as well. I asked him, this will make the car stop squeeling right, and he said, Most definitely. They put on the brakes and two hours later my car came around and said it was all done. When she drove the car around however I heard it squeek. I asked the manager and he said, just drive it for a few days and bring it back if you still hear it.
Well, it not only was squeeking...it sounds like a freight train stopping. I took it to another shop and they said, it looks like they didnt even turn them right and they warped them . You can see rust all the way aroung the rotor where the pad isnt even touching them. I brought the car back to Brake Check and told them, and another manager looked at me and laughed and said...Yes, you should have replaced the rotors. I was so mad I just left. These people do not know what they are doing, and simple dont care either.
