Help on "Check Brack Linings"

Need some help,

My brake light just turns on (on the panel), also it shows "check brake linings".

I guess it needs brake pads replaced. Just wonder, usually how much does it cost?

Any good recommendation around Ann Arbor, MI area? At dealer or recommended mechanics?

If you DIY, then it is inexpensive. Very easy job if you have the tools, desire.

Stick to Pagid, Jurid, ATE. Stay away from Bosch QuietCast thingy.
Don't forget to buy a pad wear sensor too.

I usually buy the parts from Autohausaz in Phoenix, AZ:

Front pads/rotors/sensor/grease will cost you <$300 and 1-2 hours of work (Zimmerman rotors and Jurid pads)
Dealer will ask for close to $1k for this job. Indy mechanics usually charge ~$150-200 for labor to do this.
