I was having some trouble with my brakes so I visited Brake Team of Hillsboro.  After waiting a few hours for the repair tech to examine my car, the lead comes up with an estimate.  Not only do all 4 wheels need new brakes, but my Anti-Lock Breaks also needed repair.  (which was fine and not entirely unexpected...)

However, in his estimate of over $5000 to replace all 4 brakes, $4000 of the amount was the cost of a single part.  Flabbergasted by the total, I nervously let them do a patch repair on my back breaks to get me through until I could get some funds together.  They took my entire paycheck for what little I allowed them to do. 

When I got home, I had some friends do some research.  The part they were going to charge me $4000 for was available at a local dealership for $140 - brand new with a 2 year warranty.  Needless to say I did NOT return to let them finish the job.  Instead, I had the same friends who helped me shop around install the parts for a fair fee.  The parts (all new with warranties) and the labor came to a total of about $890. 

I will never go there again.  As a single woman, it's hard enough to not be intimidated at an auto repair shop.  Places like Brake Team of Hillsboro are the reason why.
