Front Pads, Calipers, Rotors, System Flush
Amount: $577.07

Auto Shop: Pro-Cat
Went here first after driver side caliper ceased. Shop recommended replacement of calipers, shoes and driver side rotor- passenger side was ok and recommended just to cut the rotor quoted $688. Went to Pep Boys and got a quote for $768 for same job with 2 new rotors, Went to Toyota Dealer and quote was $1048, tried GoodYear Brake Shop quote was $758. After going back to shop, they reduced the price to $577 which included 2 rotors, 2 front calipers, 4 pads, tax and brake line fluid flush and brake lines. We thought it was a fair price but not a great price , and signed off on it. The brake line flush was $99.00, we got $10 off that price and also had a $50.00 coupon but the price still came to $577.07 The owners are friendly, the prices are reasonable but not great. We only had it done there because we needed the car to get home that day. The car drives fine and they topped off all fluids.

Front & Rear Brake Pads and Brake Fluid Flush

Wasn't thrilled, but then again this is the first brake pads I've replaced and the 2009 Camry has 70,000 miles. I've replaced pads on other cars after 35,000 miles or so, so not too bad and not unreasonable. Plus the dealer did all the work and they've been fair on other repairs/charges, and the brakes feel great.

Remove apps from brake fluid reservoir. 1 side anytime compress the piston back in the caliper. Old large screwdriver works fine. Remove caliper and install new pad. Install caliber with the new pads. Brake reservoir will be full with a new pads in place. That side is complete. Do the same thing only other side and the brake job is done. 15 maybe 20 minutes at most. Not much longer then it takes to smoke a cigarette.

I have been servicing my care there for the last 4 years. Went to the shop to check on brakes as my car was making a little noise and the wheel shook. I was told that my pads are good, but rotors needs resurfacing. So, they did it. Seems ok. I do think I was overcharged a bit for the job (can't really complain - its a dealer), but it is hard to find a good trusting mechanic....

Monroe pads from Amazon for $45 and free after rebate. Two centric rotors from carjunky for $60. Did it myself at my backyard. On BMW's, rotors and pads have to be replaced at the same time. I usually go with cheapest parts which last about 30-40K miles which I careless about. I never had problems with these parts.

After reading all these post on how much you guys paid ,I almost cried. Ther is no need to pay so much. What some shops charge you to resurface is as much as new rotors and pads are usually 20 -50 dollars (not all). If you are ever in San Antonio,Tx look me up I will do the labor for front and back for fifty and the parts are lifetime warranty so if you need brakes again ,its only fifty for labor.(domestic cars) My experience includes working at a local shop(name withheld)

Started hearing metal on metal. It was a Sunday and the only place open was NTB. He suggested about $1300 in maintenance and I told him only the rear pads and rotor. He quoted me $400, called after I left telling me it was actually $690. I told him I'd call him back. He called me back with 577. Took about 2 hours. The brakes are working fine. It just seems like a lot for just the rear.
