I'll take my car there from here on out 8/5/2011

I was having issues with the brakes on my car, so I took it to brake check. The manager (Steve) explained the 3 step inspection to me, but I told him to just call me once after everything was inspected. Within an hour I received a call from Steve and he informed of all the needed and recomended repairs. I called around and found that Brake Checks prices were the least costly. that was 6 months ago and everything is still working great. I was impressed with Steve and his teams professionalism. more

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE 11/20/2010

DO NOT GO TO BRAKE CHECK. They will rip you off. I took my late model truck to brake check. After I left it there, they called 3 times telling me that I needed more and more brake components replaced (brakes, rotors, etc, etc.). I quickly went from $59 pad replacement to over $450. I got everything replaced. 5k miles later my brakes are squeeking again. I take it back, and they charge another $180 more dollars to replace the pads that they replaced 5k miles before. AVOID BRAKE CHECK LIKE THE PLAGUE. more

Bait and Switch with me too. 1/30/2008

After they quoted me a price of $715 to replace a fuel pump, they later said the computer needed to be replaced too for an additional $800. Why wasn't I told about this computer repair until I had committed? I did some checking at another repair shop, just for comparison, and they quoted me $398 to replace a fuel pump. The car was running fine the day before it wouldn't start. No electrical problems, what so ever. I think the pump was bad but I don't trust them with the story that the computer is also bad. i'm checking at a dealer's shop and will probably tow the car to them for a second opinion. Of course who knows what Brake Check did. more

Typical 1/3/2007

My experience with this branch of Brake check has been awful. From the bait-and-switch tactics of increasing the estimate several times once they get the car ""under the knife"", to installing shoddy parts that vibrate immediately and get worse over time, to the ""lifetime warranty"" over those shoddy parts that keeps me coming back year after year to pay labor and other misc charges, this place was like going to Midas. I do not trust them at all, and have little confidence in my brakes. Cons: Bait-and-switch, shoddy parts, deceptive business practices more
