Re: $750 Brake Job?!?!?
$400 for pads and rotors doesn't seem terrible. Do you really need rotors? Could they be turned instead of replaced? The limit is how thin they are, they are marked with minimum service thickness (to be re-used) & minimum turning thickness (for turning first, then re-using).
Opinions vary on brake flush. I've heard folks say it ought to be done yearly, I've seen other specs say 100K. There's a company that sells test strips that supposedly show if the fluid is shot, but I'm not sure if they are valid or not.
Me? I'd say no to anything but pads & turning the rotors. If they want to replace them, I'd make them show me the marked minimum thickness and what they measured them to be showing that they are too thin to turn.
