My son graduated from college a year ago and is living in the Chicago
suburbs and needs to get the front brakes done (and replace the belts on
the motor, probably) but received quotes varying from $225 - $265. I
asked him to check to see if they will use OEM brake pads since he has
been happy with its performance thus far (not sooty and not grinding
down the rotors). He has an '06 Elentra. I was a little disturbed that
he was quoted $225 or so for the 3 belts. I do all my own work but I am
half way across the country (he is not mechanically inclined).
So if some folks have places they could either recommend or caution me
about I would appreciate it.
If he wants to use a dealer, Pugi Hyundai in Downers Grove has been
very good although as with most dealers can be pricey depending on the
type of work being done. For a private shop, I can highly recommend
Automotive Specialists in Lisle. They are located on Ogden Avenue.
I have used Automotive Specialists for over 20 years and these guys
are very knowledgeable and honest. I've used them for both general
maintenance and major repairs. Both of these are close to Glen Ellyn.
