Brakeway In Elizabethtown

I needed to get my brake pads changed. They had been grinding for 2 days. I took my car to brakeway in Etown for the 99.99 special. When the guy came back to talk to me he made up so much bull it blew my mind. He told me my back brakes were not working and I was missing parts of my front calipers. He said I needed pads (obviously) and also new roters. All together my total bill was going to be over 400.00! He said he gave me a coupon because he tried to help people out which brought my total down to 379.99. I told him to forget it and to put the car back together. He left the room and came back in no more than 5 min. later. He said that he talked to his boss and could do the same job for 269.99 which is their highest price brake job they offer. I told him again to put the car back together.
I took the car to a local mechanic to look at it and give me a second opinion. He advised me that the back brakes were fine and all I needed was a set of pads on the front ones. I received a 99 doller brake job after all no thanks to brake way!
I would not advise anyone to go there unless you want to get ripped off!!!

I had never gone in there before but I knew they had to be some kind of scam. The way to do brakes is buy the brakes from autozone for $25-$55 and do it yourself. They come with a lifetime warranty so you will never have to put any more money into it.

Changing your own brakes is pretty easy. Have someone spend 20 minutes to show you how to do it, mate.
