2001 Subaru Forester Q&A

2001 Subaru Forester Question: brake rotors

Hi, am considering buying an '01 Forester. Have been told the rotors need replacing [pitted]. Wondering what a general repair bill/cost might be...? Thanks -
Answer 1
Depending on the quality of brake rotor they cost $65 to $95 each, it is probably going to be suggested to replace the front rake pads at this time as well (again quality of part determines price, $55 to $85 for b/pads), probably 1.8 hours to 2.5 hours labor. -
