Just Brakes Complaint - Just Brakes Rip Off!
DALLAS, TEXAS -- I go in with my 40k mileage well maintained 06 mazda3 just to change the rear brake pads, lured by the $89.95 deal! He sees and knows that its the Mazda 3 but still makes me a bill of $89.95. The they call me in a few hours at home saying that Oh it needs a specialty pads and it will $229 total ! I am like why the heck did they not tell me that price before! I could have just gone to my dealer for that price.
Anyways they put on these pads which I noticed right away were not covering 100% of the rotor surface, like before. After a day or two it started making noises when braking, like its hitting something. I take it back to them in a week! They remove the brake pads and find they were partly burned! .. Then they say the "calipers need to be redone" and made another bill of $300 to redo the calipers and put another set of Mazda pads... I called my dealer and they said they never heard anything like 'redoing the calipers'...
I took it straight to my dealer and they put in original Mazda pads and all the problems vanished! So just brakes IS NOT THE PLACE to go ... They will screw your car!! Spend some money and get peace of mind at the dealership.... I will never use just brakes again.
