I just want to give a HUGE thanks to the Brakes Plus on Ken Pratt in Longmont, CO. When I first moved to this town a few months back I went there for my first oil change, and was very grateful that the guys there (especially Steve) were so nice. So when I needed some more major repairs done I brought my car back in. I'm a broke college student and the guys were incredibly helpful and willing to work with me when I needed it. They never tried to sell me things I didn't need, and they were great with keeping me updated on the status of my car. Even when they had done what they could in the shop, they were honest enough to let me know that I needed to go to a frame shop to get the rest of the damage taken care of. I am so thankful for a their help and promised to spread the word. These guys are great!

Dropped $600 in this place less than a year ago. Instead of giving me new callipers they put in refurbished callipers that froze the other day and ruined the new rotors. So I spent another $600...but not at Brakes Plus...never ever again. After talking to the service manager who was too busy to be courteous, and finding out that only my "pads" were under any kind of warranty (for 600 bucks..are you kidding me!?), I decided that this was the last time I would ever go to Brakes Plus again. I've had other bad experiences with them too, but not at this store.

Pros: Can't think of any

Cons: Where should I start..

I had heard terrible things about Brakes Plus in other cities so I was worried about bringing my car in. My car has over 200,000 miles on it and really is not worth all that much. I had been to 2 other shops and had estimates of $1000 and $800 to do my breaks. Brakes Plus did it for less than $400. While I was waiting they told 2 customers that they could not work on their cars because they had serious problems and recommended that they see a "real shop". They even recommended another shop. One guy came in and had his inspected and they said that his brakes were great. Sent him off without paying anything. Now I will say that I did not see anyone pay $99 for a brake job. ($300-$800) seems more realistic but in general I thought they did a good job.

2 Concerns... it took forever to even get an estimate. I suggest leaving your car there all day. They took 6 hours on mine. 3 hours to get it in the bay and do an estimate and 3 to do the work.

2nd concern. They allow their mechanics to smoke while they work. I can't stand smokers and don't understand why any business owner would allow workers to smoke in the bays while they work on cars.

Generally their work was good. I went as cheap as possible and was told I should check the job within 6 months

Pros: did a good break job, price OK
Cons: took all day, costs more than $99, mechanics smoke while working on your car.
