Breaks Plus Complaint - Never go to Breaks Plus

Review by Miltbranch on 2011-09-14
Never go to Breaks Plus! Took my Explorer to their shop near Boulder for a break job estimate last week. When I called, they said it would be over $1,400! In addition to the breaks they said I needed new shocks.

I asked how much without the shocks and they said $850! Claimed I needed new rotters, pads, and calipers (?) on all four wheels, plus a lot of other nonsense. Told them to forget it and just put my car back together.

When I picked up my car and was driving down the hill on 36 into Boulder, my front wheels started shimmying so bad I couldn't deuce over 50 mph.

Went Barnsley Tire Co in Boulder and they said all four rotters were fine and my rear break pads were fine. All I needed was front pads. My shocks were also fine. My front end was shimmying because Breaks Plus had reinstalled them incorrectly.

Total cost, just over $200 vs. Breaks Plus quote of over $1,400! Never, ever-ever-ever-ever, take your car to Breaks Plus.

A place named "Breaks Plus" broke something?

I think the OP may have meant to say "brakes plus"?
