Q: I was given an estimate of approximately $900 to replace the rear calipers on my 2004 Buick Rendezvous. I thought that was high

asked by on

I got a quote to have rear calipers put on my Buick Rendezvous 2004 of $900 and I thought that was really high. That includes labor and parts. Do you think that is high?

My car has 99500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
