I took my car today at this place, because my dealer told me that the break pad are about 20% and needs to replace the pad in 6 months. After inspecting the breaks, Just break people told me that they need to replace the caliper and pistons , totaling over $500.00. I knew this was a lie, because they did the same scam to my brother-in-law. I told them to just replace the pad and declined replacing any other parts. They will try to scam u for $300 to $500 dollar every time you step into their place. Be aware, decline any other service besides replacing the pads.

I went in for new brake pads and shoes and was told I needed new roters as well; a job that would cost me $342 which I paid, now 2mths later my brakes are squealing every time I brake. I took my car back up there and now they say I need to pay an addt'l $150 b/c now I have leakage, and the work that they did just 2mths prior is now affected by this new problem so I have to get that work redone (wtf). Seems to me they will always see to it that you need them...very convenient for them...needless to say I told them I'm not giving them anymore of my money. Just Brakes, Just Sucks!

I needed some brake work but didn't have alot of money. They gave me a fair price on what they did and I will go back to have them finish up what needs to be done.

Many delays, never called, finally quoted much higher price than other shop. We declined, and when we picked up car the brakes were dragging. Just don't go there.

let me tell you a story. mom calls and says "i'm at this brake shop, and it is supposed to cost 99$, but now they tell me 545$" i tell her to come back home and i'll fix them. they proceed to put her car back together and she backs up...but the car no longer stops and she ends up in a ditch. they opened the brake lines and then did not bleed them b4 letting her leave. when she was finally towed home i also found that the rear brake drum had been hammered on at a slight angle making it nessesary to use a torch to remove. yea they care. also check out tv undercover reports. this is not unique to this location

I called Just Brakes on a Wednesday and made an appointment for the following Saturday morning at 9 a.m. The person on the phone told me that it would take around 2 hours. I got there on Saturday around 15 minutes early and the guy at the front desk could not find my appointment. He wrote me up and I told him that I would be in the area and left him my cell #. Three hours later, no call, I went back and they had not even started. 30 minutes later he called and said it would be 175.00 and told me they needed to do stuff that did not need done. He also said that it would take 3 more hours. I told him to wait til I called back to start any work. I called back and told him that I was picking up my car and to not do any work on it. He told me that they had already started. They put it back together and when I left my brake light was out and two days later my maintenance required light came on. Terrible service. Also when I picked my car up there was another customer in the lobby yelling at the guy at the desk about his bad service. This business tried to take advantage of me being a female and tried to do work that did not need done.

After having Just Braked "fix" my '99 Saturn SW2 4 months ago. They felt soft. they said that they had to "work" in. Then I had an accident. The car just wouldn't stop in time. The Saturn dealer and they said that one calper was mounted in reverse, both rear cylinders were leaking and the rear was out of adjustment. Cylinders don't go out in 4 mo. Avoid Just Brakes!
