As of 2015, the online repair cost estimation tool at RepairPal.com estimates the cost of a break job to be between $296 and $404. The cost varies depending on the model and age of the vehicle and the exact nature of the repairs to the break system.
For a more accurate estimate of the cost of a break job on a specific vehicle, an estimate from a mechanic who has physically examined the car may be necessary. Some repair shops charge for estimates, but others provide them free of charge. Getting written estimates allows drivers to compare prices between several different repair shops.
