2005 Ford Escape Brake job price

Just wondering what the concensus is here for what it should cost for a 4 wheel brake job on my Escape. I'm expecting that I will only need pads replaced. The car has 47,000 miles and hasn't had brakes
replcaced so they are the originals. I don't think that the rotors have damge.
I'm guessing $400.00

You already guessed that much.
My guess is $600 at a dealer, 300 at some hack shop.

Be prepared to pay for new rotors. As OEM rotors aren't that expensive many shops just replace them instead of resurfacing the originals. Remember that both the pads and the rotors wear together, and if you don't have the rotors resurfaced or replaced it will take quite awhile for the new pads to bed in and your stopping power will be reduced until they do. It's also a good time to flush the braking system if that hasn't been done in awhile. Brake fluid absorbs moisture (it's supposed to) and you want to get all that out of the system.
Also, your front brakes should wear about 2 to 1 compared to the rear brakes, so you may not need all four wheels done.
