Sounds reasonable to me. Too bad they didn't diagnose the issue of a bad caliper BEFORE replacing the brakes. You can replace just one caliper if it is bad, you don't need to replace in pairs. These things do happen on occassion.

sounds suspicious to me- anytime someone who represents themselves as "professional" resorts to guessin' I have to start wonderin'- and it's a "grinding" sound- hmmmmmmm

My dad told and taught me alot of things as I was growing up.One of the things he said was"I will by you that car BUTT you have to take care of it,and learn the basics like,fluids,battery oil and oil changes,ect,and when your not doing anything go hangout at GARYS shop and watch and learn something so you can do some repairs if needed,AND NEVER TAKE YOUR CAR INTO THE DEALERSHIP to get a repair".Iam sorry you took your vehicle to the dealership.Most times that is not a good Idea as you just found out.Go back to the dealership and have them show you that the CALIPER is making that noise(they have to show you if you ask) I really doubt the caliper is your problem.Have them find the problem and fix it at no charge since they tried to fix 3 weeks ago.If they say no,you need to ask them for their DISTRICT MANAGERS PHON NUMBER!!You demand it and you should get it.Its ashame we cant trust a dealership for trusted repairs,but why should they when they know HOW to RIPP OFF the public.GOOD LUCK!!!!!
