Question about 2006 Nissan Pathfinder
Dealer just told us we should change the air filter on above vehicle. Are they just trying to get us to replace it or is it valid? Just turned 40,000 on it. They also said front brakes should be replaced. What do you think?
FROM: Lusty Kid:
If you put 40K on an air filter...........you are way over due. But you can do that yourself by purchasing it at any auto retail parts place, like Autozone, Pep Boys. Filter shouldn't be more than 20 bucks.
As for the brakes, change them and have the rotors re-surface. Cost of brakes can be anything between 25 Dollars to 95 dollars for the pads, depending which ones you get or which ones the truck requires. Think of it another way. Your life and the life of others depend on how good your brakes are. So don't skimp. Brake job should not run more $100, inclduing resurfacing rotors about $10 Bucks at the local machine shop/per rotor, provided you are doing it yourself.
However if you are not handy with doing this yourself, then you are looking at about $95/hour labor charge plus parts, at the dealer you might be around the 200 dollar mark. Outside if you can catch a brake special 49.95 or tops $60.00 plus.
Anyway you look at it, it needs to be done. If you do it at the dealer, you know it will be a bit more expensive, but you can have the peace of mind quality parts were used. And you will be good for another 40K, I personally change my pads every 30K miles. Worn out or not. Saves me money in the long run. Have safe holiday!
