Service Tech question about brakes for Audi

650 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  rianbechtold
My wife has an 07 Audi A4 with 40,000 miles. Her family has a "trusted" mechanic they have been going to for many years for maintenance and repair. Last Friday she took the car in to get the oil changed and first set of brake pads replaced. I just looked at the receipt today and it shows they charged $200 for new rotors. Is it normal for Audi's to need new rotors at 40,000 miles?
In taking it in for other maintenance before, he never mentioned anything about uneven pad wear or rotors warping. I feel like he took/has taken advantage of the family's trust, but I don't know if Audi's are different than the Chevy's and fords in which I've only needed to turn the rotors, never replace them.

yes it is normal. Euro cars have superior braking systems but at the same time they wear very aggressively. To top it off parts for oem stuff is pricey
