I grew up in a family of mechanics so I know a bit. I called my brother and went over the condition of the rotors, brake lines, and other parts. We both agreed it was needed, so I agreed to have the work done. I was quoted $800.00!!!!! I asked if there were any way to cut me a deal since I was going to be spending so much and paying cash. NO GO!
NExt, they informed me of several things that needed work, but I was smart enough and too broke to go that way. I agreed to let them repair my air conditioning, as it was legitimately broken.
So now my toital was up to $2200.00 and no discount in sight.
I sat there all day and waited for my truck to get fixed. The air was fine, the brakes felt good, and the tires were ok.
Now, not ever 1 week later, my brakes were smoking, on fire, and locking up on the rear end. IT seems the mechanic did not think to replace the brake hoses even thought I specifically made sure that was part of the total price. I called them and said I would be there first thing in the morning and I WAS ANGRY! I got a simple "we'll take care of it, but that's not ususally part of the brake package." Now, I am not stupid... YES FOR $800 that is included!
My truck went back to that shop monthly for the next year for those brakes. SQUEEKING, GRINDING, PULLING, SMOKING... they still have not corrected the problem. I have taken it to another mechanic that I trust and he said that the brakes are destroyed from the use of cheap parts and poor workmanship and the front brakes alone will cost $800! Now, this is a man whom we have known for years and is trusted with Ferarris and the likes of those caliber cars. HE is a friend and trustoworthy. Why didn't we go to him to begin with? We could not afford him, and thought Tires PLus was the working man's mechanic.
I still have horrendous brake problems, not to mention a multitude of other nightmares they have caused. I can not afford to put any more money in this vehicle becuase of them. We have one car and two kids to drive around. This is unsafe and unfair. HELP!!!
