Cost ? - Rear pads and rotors

Hello all,

I am a new member and am looking for some guidance.

Recently I was given a price quote of $469.29 for rear brake pads and rotors. This seemed pretty high to me. The quote was from the Honda of Joliet, IL shop.

What is a reasonable price to pay for these items?

We have a 2007 Honda Accord V6. We purchased it certified Used in December 2010 33,000 miles and it now has 74,000 miles.

I appreciate the help.

That's about what you can expect from a dealership. Honda rotors are priced above what they're worth IMO. You can find shops that will do it for less, but then you have to wonder about the quality of parts they use, and the quality of work. I did it myself, with coated rotors from NAPA, and Honda pads bought online, for about $150.

03 EX V6 Sedan auto (NBP, then Ford Blue) - traded in after 13 years (135k miles)

Like BLCKFLSH said, it can be done much cheaper. Buy rotors and pads like those from NAPA that he mentioned, or like I did and go with the Duralast Gold Cmax pads and rotors...then take it to an independent mechanic and just get them to install the parts and you'll end up saving $$$.

I personally replaced front and rear rotors and pads, and replaced the brake fluid for much much less than you were quoted for only rear pads and rotors by buying the parts myself and taking it to an independent (but very well trusted) mechanic.

The Honda genuine rear rotors are about $180 for the pair. New pads are $70. So the dealer is charging you about $200 for labor. It will take you 1.5-2 hrs of your time if you know how to do it. It is not a difficult job - you will have to turn or replace your front rotors at some point as well. If might be worth your time to DIY.

If you have the basic tools and can do the work yourself,

$40 - $60 for basic set of rotors (i.e. Duralast, Centric)
$30-$50 for basic set of pads (i.e. Akebono, Duralast, Raybestos, Honda)

TOTAL: $70 - $110



If not, buy the parts and pay an independent shop $80 - $100 to change everything for you.

TOTAL: $150 - $210

I did the rear rotors and pads myself for about $130 for parts. I got brembo blanks and akebono ceramic pads. Took me an afternoon because i was going slow and it was my first time. also invest in the $20 impact screw driver to get the screw off of the rotor. saves you ton of headache and well worth the money. once you learn how to do this stuff you'll save tons of cash in the long run. next up is to bleed my fluid and to check my front brakes

If you're like me and only trust the Honda brand parts, I suggest
Rotors are $65.82 a piece and the pads are $45.50.
So that's $199.68 including shipping for genuine Honda parts...
Dealer is $253.06 + tax
Are you sure that the rotors are in need of replacing or just need a good machining?
It'll save you a lot if they don't have to be replaced since Honda rotors are priced stupidly.

I only use genuine Honda parts. The rotors are really pricey. I think OP may have damaged the rear rotors when his pad wore out to the metal.

The parts from the dealer is $180 for the rotors and $65 for the pads. The labor seems very stiff for an hour of work. You can get the OEM rotors for $134 and pads for $48 on line. I personally don't like the OEM rear pads, they only lasted 25K for me. My first rear brake job costed $249 for the pad and rotors turned. So I went with after market pads for the current set and do it myself ($45). Not sure why the dealer wanted to replace your rotors rather than just resurfacing them. If you don't want to do it yourself, get the parts and bring it to the local mechanics that you trust and he can do it in a hour. There are good after market rotors like Centric or Raybestos and pads like Wagner Thermoquiet or Akebono that you don't need to buy OEM. The after market rotors cost half the OEM rotors and probably better. For brake parts, I have no issue going non OEM. Honda rotors and pads are not my favorite, they worn faster than expected and rusted badly at 50K. I used the Wagner Premium rotors and Wagner Thermoquiet pads in the front wheels and they work great. The car stopped on a dime and very little fading issues, better than OEM pads.

Thats exactly how much they are suppose to charge according to the book rate. Paying full MSRP for parts.

1.8 hour of labor.
$242.37 in parts.

So their labor rate is $126/hour.

Rotor 42510SDAA00 $91.57 x2
Pad set 43022SV4A02 $59.23 x1

Do you live in the Joliet area?

If you are willing to drive to Aurora, I'll do it for you for low cost as long as you have the rotors and pads.

I have all the tools available.

I need to get my fronts and rears replaced, and my stealership quoted me $1000 for all around the car. No thanks, i'm just going to buy Centric and Akebono from Tire Rack, and have the Sonoco down the road put them on. Probably will spend a little under half what Honda was quoting me.

I bought the duralast rotors and ceramic pads and new slides from autozone for right around $150. Took me a couple of hours and I bled all the brakes. I pulled the ABS fuse when I did that but I'm not sure if you need to do that. I was quote $900 to do front & rear at an indy. I decided since I knew how to do it. It was worth $200-300 for me to do it myself. It's really not that hard. There's lots of videos. Message me if you want, I'm new but I will try to hep.
