Most likely the brake pads have been ground into the brake rotors. You're probably looking at pads and rotors on the rear for about $300 to $400. If the caliper is seized add about another $50 to $75 to the bill. Have them check the front brakes as well. Better to do just the front pads now, if needed, than wait. HTH. - Jim
