Went to Tires Plus in West St Paul, MN to get my wheels balanced. They called me while I was at work and the guy said, " are you ready for the bad news?" He then proceeded to tell me that I needed a new brake rotor, new brake caliper and pads and brake system flush.
He gave me a quote for about $600.00 and I almost had a small heart attack. I was like whoa, whoa just print me out a quote. The sales guy made it sound like this was an emergency and he advised me not to drive it in that situation and the work needed to be done immediately.
Turns out that when my husband, who is very knowledgeable with cars had him and his A.S.E. certified friend take the wheel off and look at it - EVERYTHING WAS FINE. There was nothing wrong with the brakes and the wheel balance that Tires Plus did do, fixed everything.
Let's just say that I don't think I will be going there anymore. Would you want your car worked on by people by people who lie?
Monetary Loss: $600.
