Brake job questions
Stopped at the dealership today where I bought my 2010 Outback 2.5 Premium last fall, ordered a small piece of the lift gate that broke off the other day. They performed a recall (wiper motor replacement) while I waited, along with a free inspection.
I was told that the rear pads were worn to 90% and they quoted me a price of $411.00 for the job, which included new factory rotors. So I left and told them I'd let them know when I pick up the part I ordered if I wanted the brake job.
I would normally bring my car to an independent shop or Midas for brakes, would any of you caution against that?
Also, what do you guys think of the price....Too high? I haven't looked closely at the rotors to see if they are worn, maybe they don't need to be replaced? The car has 130K miles on it.
I've never done a brake job on a car, only motorcycles. But being winter and no garage, I wouldn't attempt it this time of year. I'd prefer it done properly anyway, but don't like the price.
I just had new rear rotors, pads, and shocks replaced on my 2002 LeSabre a month ago, and that was $536.00, so the price the dealer quoted doesn't seem that far off. I'd prefer to pay less at say Midas, but don't want to get less of a job done.
