I had my brakes replaced after a mechanic told me they were worn down (pads and rotors). Also had tires replaced.
Immediately after taking it out of the shop, I notiiced that something wasn’t right (hissing sound when press on the brakes), so I brought back.
Repair shop says this new issue is not something they caused, and won’t accept that it seems way too much of a coincidence that I never had that problem until immediately after repairs.
Repair shop said to do research and we’d talk after the repair, but I can’t find anything on whether in the act of doing the repair this is ust a coincidence, so I’m hoping you all can provide some insight.
He did mention that the new brake pads would make the booster have to work harder and break it, but the issue happened the very first time I pressed the brake.
Neither myself of the mechanic want to leave this with trust problems, but I can’t help but feel like the repair shop should at remove the new labor costs unless there’s a plausible explanation that this indeed is a coincidence.
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!
