RE: Jiffy Lube, Campbell, CA - transmission fluid put in master brake cylindar - causing brakes to seize while driving

I took my car to Jiffy Lube in Campbell, Ca for a tire rotation and oil change. A few days later my brakes seized up while I was driving.

I had the car towed to Midas, where it was discovered that the master cylinder was full of a mystery fluid. Over $500 later, the car was back on th road.

I filed a complaint with Jiffy Lube, they actually went to Midas and obtained a sample of the fluid for testing. It was later determined by Jiffy Lube that the fluid was transmission fluid, but of course, they deny having putting it there.

I am now taking them to small claims court. No more Jiffy Lube for me...
