I spoke with Tanner, who was very friendly & thorough. Tanner called & MY understanding was: I was looking at $175 for brakes & checking out the car, he also informed me at this time, the car needed $8500- $9000 work to be "safe" and ok to which I declined, as the car is a 2004 Camry with 200,000+ miles. I picked the car up paying $275 00 and to my dismay; I paid $75.00 for an oil change alone - ridiculous! And the $275.00 DIDN'T get any brake work done at all!!! $200 to look over the car? ABSURD! So, I basically paid $275.00 for a freakin oil change! He said they couldn't do the brakes for under $1,400.00!!! BS!! I worked in 2 dealerships for 10+ years and have NEVER heard of such a thing. More than a $1000.00 for brakes on a $2,200.00 car??? INSANE & INSULTING! I won't be recommending you to anyone and hope I can save 1 victim from being taken advantage of, and of paying $275.00 for an oil change! Donna A. Simpson

New brake drums, shoes, hardware, and the wheel cylinder thst was leaking. Wanted both sides done. They wanted to do an inspection on the vehicle first, which i slready knew what it needed and what i wsnted done. They came back with a cost of $1900. They dont give an hourly rate. Well parts are only $250 and even "premium" parts that they say they use wouldnt be more than $400. I would like to know what they consider premium parts? I consider ford motorcraft the only thatcan be called premium in this situation. A brake job what i wanted done is only a 3hr job. This is a 750 job not including the $180 for an inspection that i didnt need or want. The psrts you ger at lets say oriellys will usually come with a lifetime warranty also. So i will be making time to do the work myself in the next week or two and saving myself $1500. I feel for the people that are at a mechanics mercy and not educated on their vehicle and have to pay more than what they need to. I will give them this for the 2stars. Theyre friendly, and get it in fairly qwikly.
