Angry Brakes & Rotors

Hi I am new here!!! I just dropped my 2016 traverse off at dealer. I need brakes & rotors they quoted $601.00 is that too high Wow I only had car for 6 month bought used 45000 miles... Last month they replaced the water pump but that was under warranty.. They also did alignment & tire rotation for 200.00. Am I getting ripped off?

So $150/wheel. Looking at Autozone, rotors run about $75-85 per wheel, pads look like about $15/wheel. Add another $8-10 in tax. So say about $100/wheel in parts, $50/wheel labor. Doesn't seem TOO outlandish to me.

Is that for all 4 wheels? Not too bad considering it is dealer work. They will use all quality GM parts so need to worry about sub standard parts. I just did my own brakes using ceramic pads from Advance Auto Parts, they are leaving some brake dust on the wheels which I am not too happy about. The OEM pads didn't leave dust.

If it is for the 4 wheels and include new rotors, pads and labour you have a deal. Rotors alone are very expensive on the Traverse.

$600 for all 4 corners isn't too outlandish IMO.

Quick glance on Rock Auto looks like pads/rotors for the coated kit covering all 4 is $222. Say over $250 or so with shipping and tax. $350 for the labor and tax? You could do worse. But that's also why I do my own work.

They really should have at least thrown in the rotation for free, I mean they're taking the **** tires off the car anyway.

I do question if they needed to be done at 45k. I think I waited til ~65k on our '10 before I did them and the fronts were still decent, while the rears had plenty of pad left. We're at 55k right now and 5k miles ago still had plenty of pad to go.

It's only for rear I took it from the deal to my mechanic he is using Gm parts and only charging me 300.00 and he said he doesn't believe they did the alignment last month based off of my tires!

I am in NJ also. My 2015 was hanging up, looked like corrosion on the pad slides and they weren't releasing fully. I got to mine before I needed new rotors.

I bought AC Delco front rotors and ceramic pads on amazon for $150. Would be close to double by adding rear, so $300 for GM parts and $300 for labor is not to terrible

I do my own labor so I save that cost.

so $600 total is a ok
