“Bog” of Brakes

After playing and weeding outside with the boys, I called around to get prices on replacing the brake pads and rotors on our minivan.  I educated myself on quality, labor, and parts through calling NAPA, a Honda dealership, repair shops, and reading Consumer Reports.  It’s always interesting to talk with more knowledge when questioning auto mechanics.  The result?  We haven’t made our final decision, but the cost difference is $281-$650 for parts.  Quality is supposedly similar between these two price ranges (between NAPA and dealership).  Grateful for our vehicle, but costs quickly add up with vehicles!  I probably bored all of you ladies with talk of brake repair.  I thought it was interesting though!  🙂
