Does anyone know what the cost of all 4 break-job should cost in Canada? I'm trying to make sure the dealer is telling the truth.
That depends on how many miles are on them, if they're badly rusted, and what's their thickness. If you have less than 30,000km on them I would leave them. Between 30-50,000km you would need to measure them and decide. Over 50,000km I would replace them. Also, replace the fronts if you have any vibrations or shimmys when braking (warped).I guess a better question that I can't seem to get a direct answer from google is it worth it to get the rotors done each time you need break pads? Or could you do the rotors every second time around?
Perhaps if the work is performed by a one-legged, one-armed tech in the dark. I firmly stand by 2 hours, perhaps up to 3 hours if all the bolts and pins are seized.I think it would take longer to replace discs, pads and sensors than 2 hours.
The dealer should be using OEM parts which and it would take 4 - 6 hours if its done properly for all 4 wheels
i...... must....... resist.......Thanks for the answers everyone! This might be a dumb question but i am unclear.... when the warning light for breaks goes off (2015), does that mean the pads are worn to 3mil .... or the rotors are at 3 mil ?
Can someone explain why they are trying to charge me 5 hours labour for the break job? The total cost are written in pen on the estimate is $3200 CAD. Can anyone confirm if they are charging me more than usual for labour?
