2005 Chevy Colorado 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 55000 miles
Hi - My husband brought his 05 Colorado 4wd to a local mechanic for a brake job yesterday. Guy quoted him approx $1,000 to change brakes and rotors; seemed expensive. I did a net search and found that on this truck it is indeed an expensive job. Husband OKs the work. In my search yesterday, I recalled reading about a subsequent ABS light problem some had after replacing rotors and off-handedly mentioned it to my husband.
Today, mechanic calls & says brakes are done. But now ABS light is on. He's ordered a new sensor (no quote on that yet). I am so annoyed as after reading posts on the net, it seems this is kind of a well-known problem.
But my question is this: did the mechanic cause this problem? Should he have known better? I am sure he is going to try & pass the cost of the sensor (and possibly the hub if I understand other posts correctly) onto us. And I want to know if I should say " no, you caused this".
Thanks for any advice or input you may have.
