The brake of our 2014 Forester 2.5i has 4mm left in the front and 3mm in the rear (while the mileage is 64XXX). Should I change it right now? We mostly do highway driving but sometimes we went to Tahoe.
The front brake do the most stopping power so I am wondering should I do the change them at the same time or do the front later.
The autoshop gave us a quote about 400 for rear and 450 for front including the rotor change. I don't know how to do it myself, just when do I need to do the change.
We're 68,XXX miles right now.

If I recall, the lowest recommended is 2mm.

950 for pads/rotors is insanely high. You can certainly get the parts and change them yourself. A simple youtube video will show the steps.

I'm not so sure that is true any more. In addition technology changes such as EBD and VSC/VDC can affect traditional brake pad wear.
