I have a 2006 Toyota Matrix and I was referred here by a mechanic at Jiffy Lube. Not the best endorsement I admit, but after looking at the Yelp reviews and the fact that it was super close to my house, I took a chance.\n\nI knew I needed my back brakes ""done""....I had stupidly driven about 9 miles with my emergency brake on and the subsequent squeaking noise made it pretty obvious something was amiss. I spoke to Gary who had one of the guys put my car on the rack. All I told them was to please check the brakes.\n\nAfter about 20 minutes he came back and told me my rear brakes needed replacing for $285 and the front had only 20% or less and that would be $245 for new pads and rotaring the drums. So over $500....though he did say he would do both for $450 if I paid cash. Classy.\n\nThis sounded high to me, very high, so I asked for a minute to call my ""boyfriend"" and instead called the Toyota dealership on Hollywood. I spoke to the service Manager and he told me, first, it's very rare to need both, and second, they were offering a special of $165.\n\nI politely asked for my car back, the guy was pissed (sorry, I can't remember his name) and tried to convince me that his price was perfect and that the quality would be better than Toyota. Huh?\n\nI made an appt. for the next day at Toyota, after a brief inspection Oscar told me that my BRAKES WERE FINE! At least 50% available on the front and even more on the back. All I needed was an adjustment on the rear brakes, and for the burnt brake fluid to be flushed and replaced. For a fraction of the price, no more squeaking and I don't need new pads on the front for a minimum of 6-9 months and the back for probably longer.\n\nLiars and thieves.
