I took my car to a shop that my cousin has used for years. I asked please check my car for any other issues it may have as I drive alot. I knew I needed rear brakes and replace rotors. 500.00 dollars later I pickup my car and the next day I hear a rumbling noise in the rear. Bad wheel bearing hub. Another 500.00 pick up my car and within 3 min hear same sound. Now in front. shouldn't they have checked the rear while up on the lift? And what about the front? Should he offer to do it at his expense? As I initially asked them to full inspect my car? Avalon 2009
While you'd want to believe the mechanic will catch/fix everything, it really is beyond their control. They may or may not have checked it when up on the lift, but really, if that had found it, you'd still be paying for the work, so it isn't like they are charging you extra if you take it back there and they fix it for you. You might be able to ask for a discount, but I wouldn't expect they'd give you one. Your car's wheel bearings are worn out. They need replaced. It's only logical you should be paying for the work to happen, even as much as we'd like to think the mechanic is at fault.
