Hydraulic issues normally are not a problem on this vehicle. In other words front and rear calipers rarely ever go bad or leak. Typically what happens is the brake pads get stuck due to corrosion in the brake holder and is prematurely wears the brake pads out or in some cases causes the calipers to have to push further in order to engage the pad against the rotor. This in turn will give you a spongy pedal. Most service stations and even the dealerships charge between 2.0 hours and 2.5 hours to machine the rotors and replace the brake pads. Brake pads run anywhere from $30 up to as high as $70 depending on where you purchase them. Multiply the labor time times your local rate in figure about $80 an hour minimum. Most dealerships and even some aftermarket shops give discounted labor rates for brake jobs and offer brake specials. I would call around to find out who has the best deal and is the most qualified. The price is usually the same front or rear when it comes to the labor and price of the brake pads. The only difference is sometimes if the rotors are not able to be resurfaced the cost of the rotor might be a little more expensive for the rear. The rotors typically run between 60 and $80 apiece.
