I know that you are all going to tell me to “do it yourself,” however, I really have no clue what I am doing, nor do I really have the time right now to do it. My wife has an Acura, and when braking at higher speeds, she is getting a really bad “vibration”. I am assuming the rotors are warped. We had both axles (rotors/pads) done last year (about 40k ago) at Midas. After they did them, we had to take the car back about 3 times for squeaky pads, and I swear a slight vibration, but they didn’t fix them. Anyway, even though they offer “lifetime pads,” I refuse to go back there.
So, her pads now started squeaking again. We were dealing with the warped rotors until we had some extra money and time to take it in. At this point, I am wondering where I should take it. I have no clue if the pads are good, and I’m guessing the rotors just need to be turned since they were just put on last brake job.
I did call the Honda Dealership (close to our house) and they quoted me $279 for pads, rotors, (or cutting them) per axle. That seems high to me. I was going to call Merlins and Tires Plus. Does anyone have any recommendations on decent shops to use? I wish I had a good independent mechanic in the Wisconsin area, but I don’t ):
