Yeah, that's excessive, go with any recommended local shop; be sure to insist they use OEM or equivalent parts.

Should cost you max $8-900 at a good reputable indy with quality parts.

It's at least 45 minutes a corner plus parts and HST. I seriously doubt that anybody could do all four corners with "quality parts" for under $1,000. Brake components have really become expensive.

How many KM? A 2018 shouldn't need new brakes so soon. I would get a 2nd opinion first.

I’d go Oem if price is similar to aftermarket parts. Otherwise I think parts from raybestos, akebono, Bosch, centric are just as good as oem.

I think op is in Brampton so igarage may be far in Markham. Chi at 360 auto is great too but he’s also in Markham.

Check out a1 auto repair on 401/Dixon…34 Kelfield st, etobicoke…ask for Amar…he’s reasonably priced and very honest. You don’t need appointment. Just walk in but be prepared to wait. If you want oem parts he can get it for you. All 4 pads and rotors should be around $600-800

I would get a 2nd opinion first. Or if you have thin spoke rims, take a look yourself or take pictures and post them here.

Very unlikely you need all 4 corners.

So many times a shop will say "2mm left" on a car for my friend/family, but when I check it has well over 5-6mm left which can be driven on for years :facepalm:.

Wait a minute, this same service (without the brake fluid) was (or used to be) around $1,000.

Which Mazda dealership is quoting you $1,600? Is that including taxes?

Option 1 - if you do not have time or you are not familier with auto parts. Then plz go for OEM parts.
Either pay for dealer all in or buy OEM parts then pay to independent garage. Independent garage should be more reasonable price like 250-350 ish (my brother replaced all pads n rotors and quoted with labor around 250 but nowadays price might be up and could be 300-400 depends.

Option 2 - buy best(premium line) aftermarket pads and rotor and pay for independent shops.

Rockauto for pads. I will only recommend raybestro ETH or Akebono.
For example. Your car will be costed with raybestro ETH pads (front+rear) like 90 bux all in and can do with 5% off as well(Google rockauto 5% coupon)

For rotors. You can buy them locally with the cheapest one but COATED. Amazon.ca or any other nearby auto stores

Then pay labor to independent garage for replacement.

Just my 2 cents.

My wife’s 2014 CX-5:

Replaced rear brakes, with the original lasting 90,000KM, and paid $300 last summer for pads, rotors, and shim kit from Mazda dealer and $125 charged by my mechanic to install.

Replaced front brakes, with the original lasting 95,000KM, and paid $435 this past April for pads, rotors, and shim kit from Mazda dealer and $165 charged by my mechanic to install including brake fluid service.
