How much should a complete brake job on both front brakes cost for pads and rotors for a 2002 Honda Civic EX? A range is fine.
Hello Customer, are you having this done at the dealer or at an independent shop?
The work is being done at an independent shop. It is my daughter's car.
She was driving late last night and heard a loud grinding sound. She pulled over and realized that something was seriously wrong with her front brakes. She ended up having it towed to a repair shop that is open 24 hours a day.
They are telling her that the Honda parts are very expensive and that the fix will be $750 for both front brakes. Is that possible?
The front brake job should cost about $175 for parts and labor.
The rotors would be about an extra $70 each. As for the rears, this vehicle would have rear drums unless it is an SI model. Are you sure this vehicle has rear disc brakes?
I'm not sure about whether it has rear disc brakes. They told her that the parts for the two door were more than the four door.
That doesn't make any sense to me. If it is relevant it is the 2002 EX model.
The rotors are different from both vehicles but the are only about $10 different.
Did they say if the vehicle needed calipers also? If not then this should only cost about $320 for front brakes and rotors.
Are they installing brand new calipers or remanufactured calipers?
