I got my car in the garage today for the check up.. Not really news I wanted to hear, but I was expecting worse. I need 2 new rotors and pads for the front, a set of shoes for the rear, and control arm bushings. They were quite scary looking.. So they ordered the parts and I have to go in at 8am Monday to get it installed. I'll probably get the CEL code(*) read then.

That shouldn't be to bad cost wise. Brakes are something you don't want to skimp on anyways.

Yeah, I had that conversation with the mechanic. I'm going to be doing a lot of city/highway driving for the next 8 months, seems I go to school about 4 hour drive from where I live, so good brakes is more of a necessity for me.
