RX330 - AM I BEING RIPPED OFF?

2004 Lexus RX 330 • 160,000 miles

I have a 2004 Lexus RX330. The delearship is telling me I need new front brakes (the rotars are fine- it's just the brake pads), a new timing belt and that I have coolant leaks in the Radiator, inlet pipe and block plate. How much should all that cost me to repair?

Radiator and pipes-$725.00 - $850.00
Timing Belt- $540.00 - $690.00
Brake Pads- $174.00 - $253.00

I would reccomend getting new rotors with the brake pads. It adds $200.00 but is worth the cost as rotors are too thin to re-surface in new cars and old rotors will warp and gouge. This will cause the pedal to vibrate as well as steering wheel. Especially at higher speeds.

Not sure about block plate and what that means. I am assuming it means a leaking oil pan and/or amin weal which would be around; $551.00
