Triple T Auto Repair Complaint - Owner try to cheat me on brake repair
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- Triple T Auto Repair told me that they have free brake inspection and they also advertised that they can change the brake pads for $80. As the mechanic took my left (driver side) front tire out the owner walks over and barely looks at it and said the brake pad has worn out so much that the caliper collapsed and I would need new calipers and pads for about $360. I became suspicious because I check my brake pads annually and never let it wear out like that. After the mechanic took out the caliper he turned it over so I would not see the brake pads. I turned it over and looked at the brake pads and they were still about half an inch thick. I have done many auto repairs myself and have read auto repair manuals so I know that the brake pad does not need to be changed until it is worn down to about .25" thick. The calipers being bad were another big lie because the pad were never worn down to the point of metal to metal contact.
These guys are con artists. Beware.
