      There is a minimum thickness spec and a minimum thickness at pad replacement spec.

      If they are below minimum thickness, they need to be replaced (obviously).

      Certainly weird that they include a trans fluid replacement at the 50k. And if that is true, that price is good.

      As for the brakes, I'm sure that was pads and rotors. Pads and rotors at retail...

      The recall won't fix your problem. You need these problems diagnosed. Without knowing what is wrong, you can't get prices to fix the problems.

      OP never explained why he needed brakes. Squealing? "Warping"? Worn out?

      That's also why these go all over the place.

      Since he is paying for them, I assumed worn out.
