While waiting I spoke with a young Lady waiting for her car who told me that she had come in for the special and was told that a several hundred dollar repair was necessary. About this time the mechanic working on my daughters car called me to the work bay to show me all the 'damage' that needed to be repaired, which totaled almost $500.00.
At this time I became suspicious as I had driven the car in and it was working just fine, I knew it needed new pads and shoes because of the noise it was making but other than that all was well.
I informed the mechanic that I was only interested in the advertised special and nothing else. The mechanic became very rude and insisted that the additional work be performed or a complete failure of the brake system on the car would occure.
After repeated attempts to convinced me to have the extra work performed, I told him NO for the last time and walked away.
Upon my return, well over an hour later, they still were not through with the work and once again tried to convince me to have the extra work done, again I told them no.
When they were finally done the mechanic came in with the bill on which he had listed all the repairs he had said were absolutly necessary, that I had refused, and said I had to sign it, I refused, paid for the $99.00 special and left.
Before getting out of the parking lot the brake pedal went to the floor and I had to pump the brakes to get them to work at all. I then took the car to another brake specialist, explained to him the story, and he agreed to look at the brakes.
This mechanic bleed the brake lines and made a minor adjustment and now the brakes work fine. He did say that the wrong type of pads were used, metallic instead of semi-metallic. He did not even charge me for the repair. He did ask that I file a report on the shoddy work performed by Just Brakes because they had a reputation of lying and ripping customers off.
Upon returning home I called Just Brakes and spoke with the manager and explained to him my story and told him he would next hear from me through my attorney. There was dead silence on the other end, he knew he was busted.
NEVER let these attempted murderers work on your brakes.
