Complaint Review: Brake Check
Brake Check Just Brakes - a dangerous rip-off Spring Texas
Two days later I was back in the shop. Seems the calipers were not releasing and putting a severe drag in the engine and strain on my transmission clutch plates. Ok, so I'm out of pocket for another $200 for a rebuilt caliper. Coincidence?
Three weeks later, my son calls me from college telling me he has some major problems with the car and it can't be driven. I make a 4 hour road trip a couple weekends later only to discover that the two mounting bolts that secure the caliper housing are completely missing. The entire brake assembly was being violently thrown against the wheel housing and mounting frame every time the brakes were applied.
Upon further investigation, we found two more bolts loose on two other wheels. One was a caliper pin and the other another caliper mounting bolt. We wasted the entire Sunday driving from one auto parts retailer to another trying to locate replacement bolts. Unfortunately I ended up having to order the bolts from the dealer and ship them to my son.
Thank God my son did not have a life threatening accident because of the shotty work from the guys at Just Brakes. I chose to call it shotty work because I don't want to believe that they would deliberately sabotage my son's vehicle and endanger his life, but you never know. It is very suspicious that 3 wheels had untorqued bolts and a caliper failure on the 4th.
Common sense would tell you that they Just Brakes obviously make no money on a $99 brake job and must recoup operating cost elsewhere.
Beware - these guys are dangerous.
