broken brakes

Seems Katie's been driving my car and she's ruined my brakes! It just cost me $268.02 to get them fixed!! angry.gif

 

Yes - all you helpful men out there - I know you should expect to replace your brake pads every 40,000 miles - and it's normal wear and tear on the car and all that! My car has 38,000 miles on it!

 

SO, I'm blaming Katie anyway !!! My theory is she was the last one to drive my car before the brakes started squeeling therefore, she broke my breaks!!!

 

I'm really mad because I didn't need this right now! And I can't believe the brakes went bad in one weekend - what the hel* was she doing - donuts over railroad tracks? angry.gif

 

I don't use my car for much - just to the grocery and to work and back. (I have panic attacks getting on the highway since the stroke.) So, Katie's been using it like it was her personal vehicle. That ends today! She broke my breaks - and from now on she's taking the bus!!

And the broken brakes have gotten me off moldy page 2 biggrin.gif that's the only thing I can be happy about!

here's a helpfull male opinion.

 

Tell her to quit slamming on the brakes and apply pressure to them gently.

 

And can someone explain why teenagers feel it necessary to drive in circles around a parking lot for fun?!?!?!? Makes a pain in the rump when I'm trying to get into Walmart for a quit shop on a Friday night.

Well how long were the brakes squeaking? They do that for a reason you know. It is a wonder that you didn't need routers too on top of new pads. I used to go threw a pair of brake pads every three months when I was doing the mail route. As soon as they squeaked, they got changed.

The Brakes were fine on Friday - then the kid takes it for the weekend and the breaks are shot !!! I drove the car to work on Monday Morning (three stoplights between my house and the office - and I didn't hit a single red light) and they seemed fine. (J picked me up last night because Katie had school -) This morning I drove to work and the squeeling told me something was very wrong!

 

Trust me - the kid screwed up my breaks!

OK, DO YOU WANT THE GOOD NEWS NOW?

 

SHOP FOR BRAKE WORK. WHEN I WAS IN BUSINESS, WE BOUGHT GOOD PADS FOR A MAX.OF $25. MOST WERE AROUND $15. TURNING ROTORS WAS $15 A PAIR. OF COURSE THAT WAS WHOLESALE. SO ADD SOME PROFIT, AN HOUR'S LABOR, AND IT STILL WON'T COME CLOSE TO $262.
