I would budget for a complete brake rebuild. Pads, rotors, drums, wheel cylinders, master cylinder etc. Not to hard to do yourself if you are handy.

ok thanks but out of curiosity could it be the brake booster because it felt like there was no brake assist at all

It could be a lot of things. Worn out brakes is my guess.

Have you ever driven a vehicle with manual brakes? It could be normal. You need much more pressure on the brake pedal with a manual brake equipped vehicle. HTH. -Jim

There is a power brake booster on this and that is going to be your problem. The brake booster is bad. Classic symptom when you literally have to stand on the breaks. There about $110.
