Uber Vehicle Maintenance Fail w/ Pep Boys #vlogmas 1

7am PST: Today I talk about my failed attempt to get my brakes pads replaced at Pep Boys and how you should plan your maintenance accordingly.

UPDATE at 1:34pm PST : At Pep Boys and the manager states that I am the only person who has ever stated that once your get your brake pads your changed the car should feel different. He also told me that the back brakes may be making the grinding noise. That threw me because we started this process with a break inspection so if my back brakes are really the culprit shouldn’t they have told my front and back brakes are the issue? He says there no way an inspection will reveal that information. Huh? Why is an inspection if it doesn’t reveal brake issues. This guy is insulting my intelligence greatly. He’s changing my brakes now. Smh.

  1. Would your dad not have changed your brakes for ya? It's a pretty simple process and a whole lot cheaper to do it yourself or someone you know who knows how to. I was lucky and grew up with a father who was a mechanical engineer and a brother who was a trained car/hotrod mechanic and learned how to do majority of car repairs. Saves a lot of money but having the tools to do it does help and I understand not most people do.

  2. At least they didn't charge you $1600 for an improper clutch and flywheel repair that a mom's and pop's re-did correctly $900 then one day buying air fresheners or something you get told that some tops execs are in the store who you can aproach. You do that, explain the situation and they flat out tell you… "we can't help you with that!"

  3. This is one of the main reasons why I stay at the repair shop and watch, even if they say it's gonna take 3 hours. There's a lot of shops that will really play games with u… It's a possibility those guys at jiffy lube didn't even change your brakes but just sprayed some brake cleaner on your rotors to lower the screeching sound and figured u wouldn't notice the difference.. To be safe I would take it to a non franchise shop and get the front brakes inspected just to make sure everything's good.

  4. I used to be a technician. 1) Women ALWAYS get hosed due to assumed lack of mechanical knowledge. 2) On a front wheel drive car, I've never replaced pads/shoes on the rear under 100k miles. Front brakes go bad maybe every 45k depending on the model. 3) Try Angie's list to find a decent mechanic

  5. Thats why I never like going to the mechanic. They are always trying to rob people and on top of robbing you they dont even do a good job. Anyway, if you keep hearing that grinding or grating noise do not ignore it. I was hearing the same from my brakes and it wasnt even loud nor continuous so I ignored it for 2 weeks UNTIL the inner rotor of a front tire broke because it became so thin that my brakes failed while I was driving and I had to use my emergency hand brake to stop. If you are driving a lot make sure that you are not hearing any sort of grating sounds because whatever it is it will wear down and worsen much much much faster .

  6. Also, tell them you want them to test drive the car with you in the car. I had brakes done and they did not bleed them. Almost caused an accident because the brakes would not grab. Good video?
