Inexpensive brake replacement, north Toronto?

Hi, I am looking for a shop that will do inexpensive pads, rotors (possibly calibers) replacement in North Toronto (401/404 area would be best), or a shop between Markham and Newmarket that is open on a weekend.

Thank you.

what car is it (brand and make)?

there's a lot of websites that sells these parts and you could always diy to save the labour.

but if not, try hitting up igarage (google them for #) as they're open on the weekends and offer a great price.

Using low quality parts in your car is not a good idea. You will need to replace the rotors and pads again within 1 year.

Thanks Tomy, I will give em a call.

(don't think I would trust the car if I changed the brakes myself ;-)

ps, the car is 05 dogde magnum.

You have a large heavy car. I would not be looking for cheap but good. Go to several places and get estimates. Go to the usual suspects, Speedy, Midas, even a dealer. They all do free inspections and will give you a quote. Tell them you only want pads and a brake service. Don't let them sell you new rotors because of rust, grooves or that they may warp. All rotors rust. all have grooves from the pad wearing into them and if the pedal is not pulsing, the rotors are not warped.
By the way, they are "calipers" :)

Agreed.......... brakes and tires are the two things I would definitely not cheap out on :)

Thank you, just to clarify I really wasn't asking for inexpensive product, but a good deal on decent product.

Thank you.
