Just Brakes Complaint - Don't Go To Just Brakes
When I took my Saturn in for a simple replacement of shoes and pads, I knew I should walk away after they had all the parts laying on the garage floor and told me I needed this and that for about $600. I have, personally, rebuilt both shoe (Bendix) and disk brake systems since I was 18 years old for less than $100 for the whole system. Granted, I took the disks and drums to a machine shop to be cleaned up for $5 apiece. I know I was stupid, but the last complete brake job I did was 12 years ago, and I'm now 63. Can't stoop so well anymore. I did completely rebuild 4 engines in my life, beginning with a 52 Chevy which was clogged with old oil from slow driving around town when I took all the pistons home to clean the ring grooves out at my dining
room table. When that old girl was cleaned out, she held a nice 80 mph all the way to the Quad Cities on her six without a whimper. Solid Car.
Again, just don't go to Just Bakes unless they explain in detail every line and small line that they tell you, sign here and initial there; because you are signing a binding contract. Most don't. I would never do it again.
