How much does it typically cost to change the front and rear brake pads in my 2012 Chevy Malibu?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Sue, On average your front and rear brakes can cost $90-$120 for the front and then the back. It may be more expensive if your rotors are requiring to be turned/resurfaced depending on the severity of wear.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Depends on the quality of the part. There is cheap, economy and premium. Also find out what kind of shape the rotors and calipers are in.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at It depends on what state you live in & what the hourly rate is at the shop you're taking it to. My shop usually charges about an hours worth of time on each front & rear plus parts & fluids.
