1996 Ford Taurus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 116000 miles
I just bought a car from a private dealer, and within a few days the rear brakes began to grind. I didn't think much of it, and figured I'd have to take them in, but then yesterday, they REALLY started to make noise.
They are grinding very loudly, to where it sounds like there are no pads at all, just metal on metal. Also, if I brake too quick there's actually a popping effect, like one big pop.
I'm really worried that this is going to cost me an arm & a leg. About what should I be looking at for charges on a brake situation of this sort?
