And your question is ???

Auto Service would be the Search the List category to find a well-rated and reviewed repair shop in your area to do this.

My recommendation is to NOT use the tire or muffler or oil change type shops for this - rarely are their employees qualified mechanics, and a poorly done job or cheap parts can not only risk your life but can also cause premature rotor or bearing wear (in cars where the bearings come out with the rotor - not the case with yours) which then can lead to a quite expensive rotor, bearing or even axle replacement before it should be needed.

Cost - depends a LOT on whether going with cheap or top-end aftermarket or OEM parts, and if being done at a tire shop or at a dealer or something in between - and of course on your local labor costs - that labor cost differnce alone could make a 25-50% difference between say NYC and rural deep south at the extremes.

ROUGH ballpark I would expect - for all 4 wheels though may only need fronts done, as they typically wear faster:

Pad replacement only - around $125-250

Pad replacement and turn rotors (resurfaces them on a lathe to remove grooves and ridges and minor warpage) - probably $250-500

Pad replacement and rotor replacement (because they are too grooved or have already been turned once so not enough material left to turn them again or are badly warped from overheating) - probably about $400-500 minimum and one up to $1000 range for OEM parts and dealer doing the work.

Of course, you would have to call around in your area to get actual quotes applicable to your exact model and year and locale - but the above should give you a ballpark picture.
