shortlid,
Good ole Flat Rate manual at $75/hour. You could've done it yourself for your Dear Mum, including out sourcing the Rotor cut/surfacing for a whole lot less. And learned a little about the car while you were at it. This is pretty much standard MO for the Dealer. That's why many of us have taken on such things, aided by shared knowledge from our Brothers and Sisters that have gone before.

Check out this thread in the Suspension Forum: http://i-club.com/forums/showthread....hreadid=138061 . That dude's mom got scammed, maybe he could help you figure out why your mom got hosed.

Pat,
Same guy!
This is a classic example of the Tech and shop making money based on the dreaded "Flat Rate Manual". Book says 2.5 hours labor for pads and turn the rotors, that's what you get charged, even if tech can do it in 1 hour.
What's always bugged me, in addition to the "padding" is that the tech won't take the time to clean up around the work despite the fact that this is included in the "rate". Example is CV Boots, where the nice new boot is in place and the bill paid and you find the grease splatter from the old boot "explosion" still all over the under side of your ride. Grrrrr! And they'll even charge an "enviro" fee to discard the "toxic waste" rags! Or maybe that's only a California thing?

$23-95 OIL CHANGE SPECIAL
If that is their special what is the regular charge. It cost about $10 to do the change yourself and it takes about 10 minutes. I take mine to the dealer because I trust them and the oil change is only $15.99. Plus they wash and vacuum too.

Well, as far as the steps to installing pads and rotors may be very simple. However, this past weekend I tried to change the rear rotors on my car without any success. The bolts that hold the calipers on were completely frozen. I tried everything from soaking the bolts in P'Blaster to actually slowly lowering the car on the wrench (unsafe, i know, but it was a final desperate attempt)! Unless you have a very high lift and a HUGE breaker bar, you may have troubles freeing the calipers. I guess I'm going to have to take the car to a mechanic afterall

Default oops!

shortlid,
No offense intended. Only meant to encourage a little DIY and obviously unaware of your situation. Mea Culpa Brother. You're right on in looking for a good independent!

Yeah you sometimes run into snags. Usually when one is to tight on the calibers it is because someone over tightened them. A frozen bolt is a major pain. I had the same problem when I had to install my exhaust.I had to finally take it to Midas. They had to torch them off. They only charged me $20 buck so I was pretty happy.

Yeah 850 miles is a long way to go to change brakes. That is one way woman are discriminated against. Some mechanics prey on woman and the elderly. If she had a male friend to go with her next time it my help. You could also teach her a few things about her car. It tends to help when you can walk in and say "I need my pads replaced and maybe resurfaced. Please clean the calibers and grease the pads well. I hate the noice of an ungreasesd pad. Instead of "My thingy that stops me is loud". That just sets a light of in their head.
