Default just had my brakes serviced, wheel cylinder replacement?

i took my girlfriends forester in to have her brakes serviced. i'd normally do this on my own, but have never worked on drums before and don't have the time right now.

anyway they replaced the shoes and wheel cylinders since they were leaking. they also resurfaced the front rotors. when she got the car back she immediately noticed that the brakes where f'd. basically the pedal needs to be pressed entirely to the floor to stop and even with that stopping power is limited. i'm not sure if it's an issue with where the brakes engage or if it has to do with the wheel cylinder replacement. since most of the stopping power comes from the front maybe shop screwed up something in the front?

looking for some insight, the dealer will fix the problem, but i can't take the car back in until next saturday.

thanks in advance.

I'm guessing there is air somewhere in the system. You might need to rebleed to get all the air out.

+1 for rebleeding and maybe the shoes were not adjusted after installation. This does not bode well for this service department. ANY brake work should be road tested BEFORE being returned to the customer. Makes one wonder if a cirtified mechanic or the floor sweaper did the work on your car.

it was a saturday right before close. do you think it's out of line to ask for a further discount since i have to bring it back in? i could bleed the lines myself, but i feel like the service shop that is at fault should.

I would take it in, since it wasn't like that before you had them service it.
