Brakes

how much $$$ to replace front rotors and pads?

Vehicle has 40000 miles. I was told front rotors are "warped" and cannot be machined/turned.
Cost is $800.00. Brake pads were originals and rotors have never been machined.

Fairly predictable response - 'warped' rotors. Avoid the repair shops which quote you high costs, like the $800. charge for a four wheel brake job.

Try these various on-parts vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto com, www.carid.com - to name only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto, CarID, PartsGeek) list the front or rear brake rotors from around $14.00-$80.00, and the front disc brake pads from around $7.00 per axle set for your vehicle. Save the labor cost and replace these components yourself.
