Default Just Brakes...

As a lot of you regulars know I am in the maintaince/repair buss. And I always laught at the "Just Brakes" deal where they replace both front and rear brakes for 89.98 Well Fox news is having a news special on their brake "deal" where surprise/surprise 99.9 percent of customers can not get out of there for anywhere close to that price tommorow night 02-20-2006. If you want to understand how a bussiness operates stay tuned

I took my fiance's econobox there. (it only had 20k miles)

They tried to get us for $418 for changing just pads, turning the rotors, and fluid flush.

I had them put it back together and I did the fronts for $14 and the rears for $12. I didn't bother turn the rotors.

I payed $26 instead of $418

Don't we know all of the industry scams. But try telling that to a customer who is in your store trying to lowball you with that bs.

LOL...

Yea, there is a rinky dink shop next to mine that claims 99.99 front/rear too. We get about 2 customers a day coming through our doors cussing that shop to hell because the "99.99" deal is a total crock of ****.

You cannot make any kind of money charging 99 bucks for a front & rear brake job. By the time you've bought the parts and paid the mechanic, you're @ 99 bucks cost or more. That is a mere marketing ploy to get you in the door so they can rip your *** wide open.

Oh I got one for ya... My commander here was about to spend over $1000 to have the front and rear brakes done on his Jeep... I looked at his **** and found nothing needed to be replaced except for the pads... So I took the same jeep up there and got a quote and they gave me about the same price... I'll let you fill in the rest w/ your choice of VERY colorful verbs....

You did get ripped off! You could've gotten all 4 sides done with rotors turned and a fluid flush for $89.98!

Ha! $21 when you could've had all 4 for $89.98

Looks like Just Brakes may be in some financial trouble soon!

Yeah.... sho'nuff. Just like I was at a Shell station today and their recorded adds they play over the PA speakers at the pump says "If you drive your car over three thousand miles and don't change your oil.... you could RUIN your engine"

Puhleeeze bitch-

Of course though.... capitalism IS a wonderful thing. Just ask our buddy Bill Gates
