So I just recently bought a used 2002 Ford Escape and took it into a Firestone to get a list of repairs and maintenance and I need help prioritizing because I'm on a very tight budget.
They said that I need to get an allignment, upper and lower control arm and ball joints for about 600.00.
Also I have cracking hoses and a leaking master cylinder, and they said to replace those and also replace two wheel cylinders it would be a little over 900.00.
A new exhaust because my exhaust is a little loud. 700.00 but even they said this is the last thing I should fix
When I drive the car it does feel bumpy so I'm thinking the control arm/ball joints however I do not want to ignore a braking issue.
Realistically I will be able to do the first two within three months but want to figure out what to do first.
