Buhler ford Complaint - Brake job
WEST LONGBRANCH, NEW JERSEY -- I took my ford f-250 to the Buhler ford service department to get the front brakes done. The nice lady at the counter said it would be 260 dollars if the rotors were still sericable. A few hours later she called me and said that all four of my rotors were so severely warped that They would need to be replaced, costing 900 dollars. I knew that if they really did need to be replaced I could buy quality rotors for less than half of that, so I picked my truck up, took it home and started doing the job myself. I took the rotors off of the truck and took them to a machine shop to get them cut. After the machinist cut them they were still well within spec. to be used. I put the brakes back on my truck and they work fine. Buhler Ford was willing to tell me that I needed new parts when I did not. It's this kind of buisness practice that gives mechanics a bad name.
