Default repair pricing verification?

Gentlemen;

My daughter is having her 99 Civic VP worked on by an independent
shop. The work is to include replacing the timing belt and replacing
all four corners with brakes (mechanic stated only 10% left).

His quote for this is $1200. Is this usual and customary? Recently
on this group I've read that the timing belt is approx $400 so $800
for brakes seems high.

Opinions? Thanks

I'd think the timing belt much higher, did he provide an itemized
list? Might be a tad high for an independent shop, dealer prices
might be somewhat higher, at least here in the big city.

Hi,
Not way out of line. I'd replace water pump and tensioner as well to
save labor cost.

I would call your local Honda dealership for a breakdown of the timing
belt package and price, then ask the guy to do all of that as part of
the service. This ran me about $800 when I had it done on our Accord a
few years ago. I think $400 for all around pads is a bit much,
especially for an independent shop.
