2005 Mazda 3

My 23 yo daughter had her car towed to Mazda when the rear brakes "locked up". Quote to fix is $1400. Seems really high to me. They say need to replace brakes, pads, calipers? And flush the system. Is this a reasonable quote?

Do you
have the same problem?

Thats quite high for a brake job, even a four wheel brake job doesnt usually run more then 1,000 dollars.

They just replacing the pads and the rotors and calipers or just pads and calipers?

I would take somewhere soon, the parts will be in the neighboorhood of 300-400 bucks even at dealership mark up should be no more then 1000 bucks.
