Q: Rear drum brakes

asked by on

Hi, I live in NY and I was charged $286 (tax not included) to replace my rear brakes on a 2003 Hyundai Elantra, approx 100k miles.

Resurface brake drums cleaning backing plates replace brake shoes adjust system and test drive

brake shoes costs $58.00

Does this sound right or is this too much?

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in about your 2003 Hyundai Elantra. The price sounds correct for the work you said was done. You are looking at about two hours labor plus parts, shop supplies, and taxes.
