Lately I've been noticing some slight shaking of my steering wheel in my 2005 Ford Taurus. So like all of you I went to a Just Brakes located in Casselberry, FL on Semoran Blvd. because the $99.88 special seemed too good to be true. Well guess what? It certainly was!
After "inspecting" my brakes they told me that both rear brakes were failing which caused my two front rotors to become so warped that they needed to be replaced. They then told me that they needed to go ahead and replace all of my rear brakes which included the wheel cylinders, drums, hardware, return springs, shoes, front rotors, and front pads for a total of $547.00 plus tax.
I immediately told them to put everything back together and that I wanted a second opinion. At that point they tried to force me into leave my car by saying, "Well, we've already got it taken apart and my guys are ready to do the work. So you might as well just let us do it!". But after some deliberation, they finally let me have my car back.
I then drove over to a (((competitor's name redacted)))(who also offers a free brake inspection), and the guy there told me that there was absolutely nothing wrong with my rear brakes and that they appeared to be working like brand new. The only thing he said I did need was to replace my two front rotors since they are no longer machineable, and to have my brake lines flushed and refiled because the copper content was really high. He even said that he'll adjust and calibrate my rear brakes for free if I wanted him to. Simply amazing. I'm shocked that Just Brakes is still allowed to business in Central Florida.
