I only have about 38,000 miles on my car and haven't changed the brakes in the front before. The sensor has not gone off yet either.
Do you think my rotors need to be replaced at all? He was saying that that rotors needed to be changed, because they felt a slight vibration when stepping on the brakes suddenly. He also said that it would be pointless to change the brake pads and not the rotors, and therefore wouldn't do work on it unless I changed both.
Therefore, I gave in and decided to let them change the rotors as well. I figured eventually I would have to replace my rotors anyways.
So my question is:
1) Do you think I was taken for a ride?
2) How often do brake rotors need to be changed? Is there any other option to replacing the rotors?
3) The total cost for changing the front brake pads and rotors, including labor will come out to about $350 ($400 minus a $50 coupon). Is that reasonable?
Btw, I asked to keep all parts.
Thanks for your help guys!
