Vehicular and financial suckiness

The Sportage has been screeching at me for about a week now, so I took it in to Bloomington Kia this morning. The verdict was that the front brakes were pretty much gone, and that replacing them would run me about $350. Which is money I don't have at the moment, so I'm taking it in to Midas tomorrow morning for a second opinion.

This couldn't have come at a worse time. Because I waited so long to register for fall classes, I probably won't get the remains of my student loan until next month, and the money that Mom owes me from back in July probably won't be here until then either. She's waiting to close on the refinancing of the old house, and is legendarily slow about getting to the mailbox. I suppose the only thing to do is keep juggling the bills and hope for a lucky strike or six on eBay, where I finally managed to put some things up last night.

rotors too or just pads?
If the rotors are still passable, the pads are cheap and easy. Been there, done that.

Re: rotors too or just pads?
Unfortunately the front rotors were shot, too, which is where the real expense came in. This is what I get for treating the truck like a toaster, as the ex used to say.
