Yeah, a lot of probs but at least the brake problems isn't major since that would have been replaced sooner or later.

Do they offer life time warranty? I called up Meineke and he told me $140 per axle and it comes with life time warranty.

Changing brakes is a joke, just do it yourself and save yourself the money that you would have thrown away. Hmm...see if they have aftermarket pads for your car. Hawk is pretty good and EBC isn't too bad either.

I just made an appointment for my brakes to be done at my dealer. I figure they're going to charge me as much as anywhere else, so why not. Plus I don't trust myself to do work on my own car ;)

Going to places like Meineke will most likely be a negative experience. Most of those types of shops use cheap brakes, which will cause your car to constantly make noises and the braking distance for your car will suffer. Use brakes from either Toyota, or a high performance pads. For example, see if TRD makes pads for you, this will be a great time to upgrade to a much higher quality of pad.

My rear rotors were really bad. They actually grinded it down and made it smooth again. Meineke actually did a good job.

sorry but, paying to get your brakes done is pretty bad. it's such a simple job it's not even funny....with all the people on this site to help you out, take the extra money and buy a mod.

buy the stock pads from the dealer, i'm not sure how much they cost, but they are damn good pads and worth it. I have 60K miles and they still have some life left. there are TRD pads, but I heard they aren't as good as the stock pads.

Unless you wore down to the rivets and scored the rotors, you really don't need to get them cut, just replace the pads. Simple 1 hour job.
