#1 of 3 M35 rotor resurface
Dec 27, 2010 (3:05 pm)
I own a 2008 M35S with 28k miles. The dealer just serviced my car and informed me that I need rear brakes. The dealer wants to charge $289 for pad replacement and rotor resurfacing. I think their price is high since the OEM pads are only $79 (I called the parts department). Is resurfacing necessary with only 28k miles? This is the first time Iíve had to replace brakes (I donít drive the car hard). Is there anything special about changing the rear brake pads? Iím familiar with changing import car brake pads.
#2 of 3 resurfacing rotors

My lifetime of experience with cars tells me that doing a brake job without resurfacing the rotors is just a waste of money....unless the current rotors are absolutely flat. It has nothing to do with mileage.

I've had two Infinitis, and both vehicles required resurfacing or replacing rotors when changing the brake pads. Sadly, this is a much higher cost job than just replacing the pads. On the bright side, during the past 5 years and 100K+ miles on my Infiniti, that was the most expensive "repair" I had.
