Had a wheel bearing replacement done by local shop. They also replaced steering rack. I pay the bill take it for a test drive. Hear metal to metal scraping.
I take it back. They admit they did not do a test drive. They adjust the backing plate and tell me all is well. I now take it for a highway test drive and when braking at 55mph, steering wheel shakes a lot. I take it back again, tell them I had pads and rotors replaced 22,000 miles ago and have not had any braking issues.
They give me back the car the next day, the owner of the shop who is a mechanic said he replaced the rotors for free, parts and labor. He said my previous rotors were defective. Very generous on his part, my repair bill was $975
My question - Did the mechanic who worked on the car possibly damage the rotor during his wheel bearing repair work or as the owner said, my previous rotor just went haywire overnight ?
