As of 2015, the nationwide average cost of replacing brake pads and rotors ranges between $296 and $404. This includes the cost of parts and labor. The actual cost varies depending on the make and model of the vehicle and the location.
In some instances, it is possible to resurface brake rotors while keeping them within the manufacturer's specifications to reduce the cost. However, some vehicles are more susceptible to brake pulsing with machined rotors. On these vehicles, the owner should consider paying for replacement parts. Many companies offer discounts on brake work, but before agreeing to such work, it is essential for the owner to know what the discount price covers.
