Honda brake pad service ?

Went to dealer for a tire swap and service advisor recommended Brake pad service for my 2016 Honda civic. I've driven it 24k so far. The cost is 170$. I said no, but they kept insisting that it is better to get it done.

Is it necessary ?

More often than not they don't even take it apart. It is pure profit for them. That's why they are insisting on it.

They'll also lube your slider pins.
That is all I do when I service my brakes.
If you can't do it, check with an indy shop.

not worth what the dealer charges, but the pins should be lubed as vkizzle pointed out.

They’re just trying to upsell something to you. I never get my brakes serviced. I just got the oil changed on our 2004 Honda Civic at the dealer. They told me that I needed a cabin air filter and the price was $98. It’s a $18 part of less and a 5 min job for me to change it out. It told them no thanks.

With some basic tools and skills you can do it yourself but I think your car is under warrenty so better get it done by dealer but see the video below
EricTheCarGuy suggests to do it every 30000 miles

Servicing the brakes should ideally be done yearly to lube the slider pins, the metal on metal contact areas & so on so the brakes keep working properly. This can help prevent issues like squeaking brakes, uneven brake wear, caliper failure etc also you get to inspect the braking system for any issues that could be starting.

However I would not do it at that price, I just do it myself once a year when I put on my summer tires. But its defiantly something good to do after the winter and all the salt and crap our cars go through.

I had all brake pads and rotors replaced for a little more than that over at igarage. I brought my own parts though.

I probably have to learn how to lube those pins. Dumb question but is it possible to lube without taking the pads apart? I do my own tire swaps.
