2004 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic
The mechanic who did my annual safety inspection told me my car passed but will need new front brake pads soon. I have 42,000 miles and this would be the first time replacing them. He quoted me $180. I called a local Toyota dealer who told me (over the phone without seeing the car) that they recommend changing the rotors AND the pads for $480. I asked how much to replace the pads only and they said $90 total but they don't recommend it. Isn't the point of changing the pads (before they go bad) to save the rotors? Also, what do you think of the price quotes?
