A Garage tells me my sliders are rotten Mazda 6 Ts2
I drive a 2009 Mazda 6 Ts2
I took my car for a MOT and the most costly service they provide, there where some repairs, costing a total of over £800.
2/3 weeks later of normal driving, i hear an awful noise from a wheel, i return the car and ask them to check.
He tells me that the sliders in the carrier had ‘rotted’ and caused the calipers to seize, this wore down the brake pads because it was holding onto the disks, and this damaged the disks and calipers irreparably. so they need to be replaced.
Front and back.
This will cost a further £800
He tells me that in their ‘major service’ they checked the brakes but the caliper was OK, so there was no way of quoting it up. because then they would be “over-quoting me and ripping me off”.
Now, if the most expensive service they provide couldn’t (didn’t) find this problem, then when would it ever normally be found before it’s too late?
I’m thinking that maybe its possible they messed up my brakes during the service or missed this problem, and are trying to cover for it
So my main question is, is this a legit unforeseeable problem, or am i being taken for a fool?
