2016 Corolla S 6/Spd
Was at the dealership today getting routine maintenance done (Oil change + Tire Rotation) and as part of their check I specifically asked them to check my brakes because Mavis Tire had told me that my fronts were shot 2000 miles ago so wouldn't you know it the front pads were down to 2 mils while the rear pads had 6 mils remaining. Long and short of it I had them change the front pads and rotors for $579, which included the labor of course (let the flaming begin). I just wasn't leaving with low front brakes to save a few bucks going to my local gas station. I qualified for credit anyway that they offer and so I had them do the job and with the oil change and tire rotation I'm $700 lighter. Yeah, yeah I know I should learn how to do these things but again I'm good with installing emblems and decals that's about all. I was surprised to need brakes, on a 6MT at 42K since I purchased the car in 2018 with 12K on the clock. I've read where folks here on the forum were getting well into the triple digits on original pads. The car did feel a lot better on the way home but my pocket is a lot lighter..........
