Cost of replacing brakes?
I have a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT that needs new brakes.
I received a quote from the dealership at my last oil change for $900 for a full brake job.
The front was quoted at $448.
The break down was:
$206 - for OEM brake pads
$242 - service: Brake pad installation, Rotor resurfacing, and Rebleed the brake fluid
First, is it recommended that I get the OEM brake pads for my G8? If so, is that a fair price?
Second, I assume I am getting ripped off, how bad? I have someone that could change them, but in that case I would probably have to buy new rotors so I want to understand how much I'd be saving if I paid my friend for their time (like $150).
