How Much Should A Brake Job Cost?

I have a Dodge Neon and I took it for repairs and they said it would be $510. They replaced the rear brake pads, both drums and one hose. This seem like too much money. Does this sound about right to you? Thank you for your help.


Hey Pat,

I would expect to pay about $295 for this rear brake job, and you might even get as low as $100 if you bought the parts yourself from the auto parts store and paid the mechanic $100 to install them (total $200).

I found your brake drums online for $28 each
