DId I get ripped off? Brake pad and rotor replacement.
Here is what I had done today.
On my 2016 VW Jetta with 65k km mileage. I was told that both my front and rear rotors and pads needed replacement. I agreed and ended up paying $800 (approx 900 with tax). I was expecting to just have to replace the brake pads. I thought brake pads were generally first to go ( I think he mentioned something on the phone about the rotors being rusted - I could be wrong about the exact reason though).
I know it would be much cheaper to DIY but I don't feel comfortable doing that. I guess my main question is - is 800$ a reasonable price for the above work? Also any tips to keep my rotors lasting longer next time? Is it the same advice as avoiding braking as much as possible ( I thought advice only applied the pads).
Thanks in advance for any insights.
