What is the typical price for 4 new brakes along with rotors?
My E320 wagon (2004) has around 25,000 miles on it. The dealership told
me I needed brakes and rotors too. They charged me $1,200 for this job!
On other cars I have driven (including a C- class benz), the rotors
never needed to be changed every time the brakes were changed... in fact
the brakes were monitored by electronics and there were either dash
warnings or old fashioned "screamers" that told you to change the brake
pads BEFORE you did rotor damage.
They tell me that this rotor change with brakes is SOP for this car.
Did I get scammed, or is the typical?
Did they overcharge me? It seemed a little pricey for a brake job.
