(Please copy me on e-mail if you post an answer - thanks) Brake pads are not very expensive - $20 or so per corner. Rotors, however, are quite pricey and cost well over $100 each (for genuine Saab parts). I am guessing that the $400 estimate you received was probably for two front rotors and all four sets of pads. If that's the case, $400 is a reasonable amount. Depending on the mileage of your car and how you drive it, new front rotors may be a good idea. If you're concerned, I'd take the car elsewhere for a second opinion, or ask the dealer to show you what's wrong the current setup. -Justin
