Manufacturers make brake rotors for specific vehicle models, trim levels, and year. Without all the details plus the vehicle’s mileage, it’s hard to estimate the cost of replacing the rotors in your car or truck.
Let’s look at what you can expect. Because it’s unusual to replace a rotor in at least the first three years of service, we’ll use four different models from 2018. Warranties vary from 2 years for original equipment and equivalent products down to 90 days for high-performance parts.
The vehicles are:
- The popular Ford F-150 XLT with a 3.5 turbocharged 6-cylinder engine.
- The best-selling, full-size Toyota Camry LE.
- The compact KIA Forte.
- The Honda Pilot SUV.
Popular vehicles have a variety of parts options and price competition. The prices shown here were recently advertised, as available, by national automotive parts suppliers. Specific prices can vary by location, availability, and competition.
Ford F-150 XLT
This truck has a wide range of prices and options available for the do-it-yourself mechanic. You can buy inexpensive front rotors in the $60 range, with performance-drilled and slotted rotors for around $150. Some rotors range from $80 to over $100, including rear rotors. You can find economy rotors in the $70 range.
Expect to pay between $90 – $120 per rotor for good quality.
Because of availability, these rotors can be reasonably priced. Economic front rotors are in the $30 range, with premium front rotors in the $60 range. Expect a good quality rotor to cost in the mid- $40s. Rear rotors are more expensive, with economy options in the high $40s and premium options above $100.
A good quality rear rotor should be in the high $50s to mid $60s.
While a popular compact vehicle, it is not as popular as the Camry, limiting the selection and range. Front rotors start in the mid-$50s and run to just under $100 for a premium rotor. Quality rotors cost between $70 and $80. Rear rotors have even fewer options, with prices in the high $50s up to $80 for premium rotors.
Expect to pay an average price of around $60 each.
Brake parts are readily available for this popular SUV. Economy front rotors cost from the low $60s, with premium rotors just above $100.
Good quality rotors cost between $80 and $90 each.
You’ll find rear rotors from the mid $50s up to $90 for premium products. Good quality rotors will run you around $60.
Buy the best quality rotor with the best warranty in your price range. Don’t skimp on brake parts because not stopping your vehicle when you need to can be very expensive.
