2009 Audi A4 Avant: The Cost of Brake Service

July 28, 2010

Ok, pencils down. All answers are in. Yesterday, Ed asked what you thought the brake service on our 2009 Audi A4 Avant would cost. Drumroll, please...

$672.32 (hambone72 came awfully close)

We spent $210 for labor and the rest on materials, including two new front rotors. A brake change is a relatively simple undertaking, even for a novice. But this blog is about trying to represent the typical ownership experience. Most A4 owners aren't going to jack up their car in the driveway. They are going to the dealer just like we did. And they can expect to get hosed there, just like we did.

So, either transfer some extra cash into the checking account to pay for new brakes, or learn to change them yourself.
