My 1996 Honda Accord is in for only front brakes at a local shop. They are telling me that it will be $480.00 dollars. I know they have to use a slid hammer to remove the rotor but $480 for front brakes only seems high. thank you for any help on this. Pat

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Pat, Yes, $480 does seem high for only a front brake pad replacement, you may have to replace your rotors as well, but with that in mind this too seems like a high price. You may want to seek a second opinion.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Pat, If your Accord was getting a complete brake repair then $480.00 seems like a fair price. I would think for that price you received new good quality pads, rotors and a brake fluid flush.

Gail Dunn, Owner at Women's Automotive Connection Pat If you are having pads and rotors replaced, that is about the right price in my area. However, I would make sure the rotors need replacing and not just turned before making the choice. A second opinion seems in order.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at It's an average price, depending on location.
