Keeping up with the maintenance and service work required for your vehicle's brake system is vital to ensuring that you have a safe and reliable vehicle. Consider the following signs that you may have an issue with your brakes that needs to be inspected by a certified mechanic.

Your brakes should not make noticeable noise when you are using them. Any screeching or squealing sounds that you hear when applying pressure to the brake pedal could be signs that your brake pads are worn down and need to be replaced. The danger of continuing to drive with worn-out brake pads is that they could unnecessarily expose metal parts of the brake system to other metal, which causes friction and corrosion over time.

Also, look out for any feelings of stepping on a sponge while using the brake pedal or having to press your foot extra hard to apply the brakes.
