Question: 60,000 service for 2007 Lexus IS250

Just got my wife's car back from mechanic (oil change) & he recommends performing the 60,000 service at an estimated cost of $1,300. ..

My question, does this sound reasonable?

Side Note: he did mention that front brakes & roters were needed (not sure if that's part of the 60,000 schedule or not) . . .

In any case, can someone tell me if this seems reasonable . . . I have no clue. . .

Thanks in advance for your help.

p.s., car is no longer under a warranty.

And normally the brakes are inspected with the service, and not replaced unless necessary, so that would raise the price of a basic 60k service. You can call around to get competing quotes.

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
