Brake Check Complaint - Still Squeaking! - Brake Pad Repairs And Rotors Rotated?

Review by latino79 on 2009-01-16
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- I recently had my car serviced at Brake Check. because I noticed that when I was stopping at red lights or stop signs my brakes were squealing. I took my car to the one on Marbach. They told me they would look at it and they would call with the quote. When they called like 2 hours later, they said it would be about $325 so I said ok! They later called back and said I had a master cylinder leak also and that would be about $250 to fix it. So I said ok! Then they said with everything if I wanted the good ceramic brakes it would be about $736 all together!

Later that week after about 3 days later my brakes started making the same noise but louder. I am really angry and I am looking into satisfaction ASAP!

I went back around valentines day. I took my car in again! They claimed they replaced my pads with the best. I left and all seemed ok! Less than a week later I hear squeeking even worse. I am just going to the BBB. Iam done with brake check. In about a week or 2 they will hear from my lawyer. I had enough!

did they turn your rotors? New pads without rotors will always result in squeaking

YES THEY TURN MY ROTORS, PUT NEW CERAMIC BRAKE PADS ON ALL 4 WHEELS. FILLED MY DOT 3 BRAKE FLUID AND ETC. I JUST DONT KNOW IF THEY REALLY DID ALL OF THIS. BUT THEY SURE CHARGED ME FOR IT! ITS NOT OVER I WILL SETTLE THIS WITH CIVIL COURT IF I HAVE TO. OR THROUGH THE MILITARY ALSO I AM SCHEDULED TO HEAD BACK TO IRAQ THIS APRIL FOR MY 3RD TOUR! THIS IS THE THANKS I GET FOR SERVING MY COUNTRY GOING ON 11 YEARS THANKS!

I'm also having the same issues i had brought my car in for a vibration when braking and they said we replace the pads and turn the rotors it'll fix that. This was at the end of March. 2 weeks later i took it back there squeaking and they said it's the back brakes doing it but it wasn't the back brakes. They ended up replacing the front brakes again. 2 weeks later i took the car back and they replaced the front brakes again. The next day after replacing the brakes they started squeaking again. I haven't taken the car back yet. Every time i took it back they said manufacture defect. Blah blah blah. May 20th was the last time they replaced them. I'm more afraid of these brake pads wearing out my rotors.
