Beware of Bait & Switch Offers From Unscrupulous Repairmen

bait and switch repairmen

Many other auto repair shops in our area of Sterling and Ashburn, VA are offering a bait and switch coupon. This is a very common practice in this economy. Some may say a fixed price for brakes. What this means is just organic pads. This is what we call in the industry a “pad slap”. Meaning they just remove the caliper and slap a new set of pads on and there you go. When you get there they will tell you that you need upgraded pads and that is extra, your rotors need to be turned and that is extra. The truth is only about 10% of all cars on the road today take organic pads and of those almost all are on the rear only. The price of maybe $99 or $109 for your brake job magically becomes $300. The truth about brakes is that something needs to be done to the rotor when you replace the pads. The rotors get glazed and this smooth slippery surface causes your new brake pads to get glazed also causing them to squeal, make extra brake dust and increase stopping distance. Good brakes are a must as we all know from driving in the Sterling, Ashburn and all of Northern Virginia areas.
