I had been using Atlantic Tire on S. Miami Blvd, in Durham, NC for auto service for a few years, when I decided to check-up on some recommended work. The Durham store recommended I get my brakes done and quoted about $500 to do all four wheels on a 2007 Honda Accord. I said no thank you, I’ll take care of it myself. I had brought the car in for an oil change and tire rotation.
After picking up new brake pads for the front and rear, I drove the car home and inspected the back drum brakes. The pads on the rear drum brakes matched the new pair I had just purchased. There was very little wear on the back brake pads (They didn’t need to be replaced!).
I have decided to never go back to Atlantic Tire.
If you are using Atlantic Tire for any service, have them show you the parts they replaced or better yet, don’t go there.
