Tires Plus (on University Avenue and Tuttle Avenue, Sarasota, Florida) charged me $1200.00 for a brake job I didn't need. They insisted I needed new calipers and new brakes for my 1985 Mecedes Benz 380SL that only had 33,000 miles on it.

When I brought the car to a professional Mercedes Benz mechanic several days later I was told that Mercedes calipers almost never have problems. It turns out all Tires Plus had done was paint the old calipers and put them back on the car.

Reason of review: Lied about the work my car needed.

Monetary Loss: $1200.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

I didn't like: Dishonest practice, Beware of tire plus, Bad service, Lied about the work my car needed.

What I really don't understand is why you would take a Mercedes to a Tires Plus store to have work done on your brakes. Or, perhaps you were there for tires and they talked you into brake work.

You really should have known better. Now you know. Hard lesson to learn.

With a brand of car like a Mercedes, only a dealership or a very good, local mechanic should be allowed to work on it. And, the guy you finally went to is correct---calipers on a Benz will last the life of the vehicle in most cases.
