2004 Volkswagen Passat Question: 2004 Passat Estimate for belts, 60k service and front brakes



, 1.8L 4 Cylinder Turbo, San Francisco, CA, September 25, 2010, 00:01

I have a 2004 Passat and was quoted the following amounts for various services. Most seem to be in line with RepairPal except for the brakes. Do these seem like reasonable rates?
- Timing Belt and Serpentine (Drive?) Belt replacement = $890
- Front brake replacement = $440
- 60k service = $335, includes brake and coolant flush

    Prices seem right for SF area, brake replacement sounds like it for brake rotor replacement as well.

    Sounds about right. Make sure when you do the timing belt on this, have the waterpump, timing belt tensioner(s) and seals replaced. You may pay a little extra when you do this, but if you plan on keeping the car it will be worth it.
    If you'd like to email me I can give you more details on why.
