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
I'm guessing $400.00
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.
