Just Brakes Complaint - Don't Think I'm An Idiot
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- So I made an appointment at Just Brakes in Orlando fl on w. Colonial dr. I got an estimate the day before at another shop at was told I need new front rotors and brake package... I went to Just Brakes to shop around, they took my car apart, and said I need new brakes and rotors, which I expected. He said my rotors where going metal on metal and was so bad he cannot just put fresh pads on the rotor because it's illegal. Also said my calipers need to be rebuilt, front and back... Would cause me $680 total. Keep in mind he is talking a mile a minute this whole time, using clever metaphors and sales jargon. I told him I can't afford that and would return when I could. I told him put back together and I'll be on my way. He came back saying I am trying to help u, if you don't do calipers today it will be $544. I said no, he came back saying he could get rotors for a little less (he initially wanted $158/rotor). Came back saying $99 a rotor and would charge me $42 hardware or wouldn't perform the $49 brake fluid flush. Cost. So to fix my 2 front with rotor, it would be $319, or I could do 1 rotor $218, or just put new brakes and shoes for $99... This is after he said legally he can't do just pads and shoes. I told him very nicely, my husband will come back on the weekend cause we can't afford today....
I made sure not to loose my temper cause my car was still in pieces.. It took them 2 hrs to get my car back together after I had to tell him 3 times that I'm not interested. I was there for 4 1/2 hrs total. Please spread the word about these crooks!
