My battery finally shit the bed this week. That's an easy fix, obviously. Warranty on the current one is gone, but Advance Auto said a pro-rated replacement is about $66. New ones are $135 - when the fuck did batteries get so expensive? Also realized today that my brakes finally shot. I drive a 2004 Suzuki Forenza (front wheel drive). DO I need to just do front brakes, or am I probably gonna have to replace front and rear? I have access to the hobby shop on base, and I can rent a bay with a full lift for like $5 an hour, plus they provide tools and mechanics to help you out if needed, so that's the easy part. On brakes, is there anything special I need to look for, or are basic brakes just fine for a commuter car? I'm pretty easy going on my brakes, which is probably why I just started noticing the problem.
