Thanks so much for your help, backyardmechanic!
I have no idea when the brakes were last done so I'm going to just get them all replaced. It's not only a jingle bell sound but occasionally, a "whomp-whomp-whomp" sound when I brake. The whop-whomp-whomp sound comes more from the back of the car and the jungle bell sounds come from the front since I can hear it a lot when I roll down my windows while braking.
Putting the sounds my car makes into words is quite harder than I though!
I'm just afraid of most mechanics at shops, ripping off young women like me. They fix my brakes but then make up other things that "need fixing" and charge me a lot more. So how much should a full set of new brakes, both front and back, and all the things it needs for brakes, cost me?
