The average price is based on quotes for all Ford cars, cross models and year, so the price for your specific car may very well vary.

What is included in this price?

Different things will be included depending on exactly which Ford brakes price you ask for. If it is a full service of your brakes that you are looking for, then the price which is quoted to you will include the labour, time and materials required to fully check your brakes and to see whether or not they need any attention. This price should also include the cost of new brake pads, calipers, discs and/or shoes if your car is found to need them and the labour required to properly install them. You might be charged extra if any of the housing, handbrake linkages or other parts need replacing. Exactly what will be included in the Ford brakes price would be specified by the garage before they carry out any work on your vehicle.

If the price you are given is for an inspection rather than a service, this will only include an examination of the condition of your brakes. If the mechanic who carried out the inspection recommends that you replace your brake pads, shoes or discs, following this examination, then it will come at a further cost to you.

Many places actually offer free brake inspections, so don’t be fooled into paying over the odds before any work is actually carried out. If any parts of your braking system do need to be replaced then you should check the quality of the parts that are included in the Ford brakes price. Some parts will come with a longer guarantee than others, so although one price might be higher than another, it might come with a better guarantee and therefore work out as better value in the long run for you.

How do I know it is time to check my brakes?

If you notice anything at all out of the ordinary when you press down on the brake pedal then you should take your car in for a brake service as soon as possible. Brakes are highly important when it comes to the safety of you and your passengers, and it is certainly not worth taking any chances where these factors are concerned. If you hear a squeaking noise when you place your foot on the brake pedal then this could be a sign that you need to replace your brake pads. If you feel like it is taking longer than usual for your brakes to bring your car to a complete stop, or if the pedal feels spongy when you press it down, then you should get a quote for a Ford brakes price right away.
