Price Comparison - Break Pads

March 27th, 2008 at 06:32 am

I'm going to create a new category called "Price Comparison" where I will list costs to various expenses and ask you guys for your experiences. To guide us all if we are getting fleeced or not.

Today I got my Breaks done.
Type of Car: Small Compact
Where: Midas
Parts: 49.95
Labor: $70 (Installation) + $40 (For Sanding my Drums, did I really need this????)
Extra Info: FRONT Brakes Only
Discounts: Did not charge me tax

Total Cost: $159.95

Did I pay too much? Did I get a great Deal? Please let me know your thoughts.

I used to think I was the only one playing grown-up and that everybody else who looked the part really did have the part.

After reading these articles

I realize more people are precariously living on the edge than I had originally thought. This certainly doesn't make me feel any better.

Gas prices are SO horrible, I'm mapping out a bus route to work just to see if it's worth switching.

Edit: I might try the bus thing once or twice just for the heck of it, but it just doesn't sound like a great idea at this point, I'd be getting home pretty late plus when I think of emergencies that could come up, it doesn't sound worth it.
