The other mechanic I went to said I need brake lines, he said they were rusted. Came to looking in the rear break lines looked like they were replaced just before I got the car! People make me giggle on how they try to make excuses on stuff being bad to make an extra buck and screw the little man. Any how! Here's my baby on the lift
Yeah I once took my old car to a Just horrible brake job franchise that really doesn't care. At the time I was younger and stupid. They sold me $700 worth of brake services. What the heck.
After deciding to work on my own brakes I understand how you can deceive people it's really sad, but people also need to know a little common sense, in general it's bad business.
I was once at a Tries less up sell more they had a guy in tears because his older car needed a ton of work and he was just there and spent a ton last time.
The best one I've been told is they need to Shampoo the oil..
