When you have your vehicle inspected regularly, you will be aware of any wear and tear to parts of the vehicle. By checking your brake system regularly, you can help prevent an accident or serious situation created by poor performing brakes. If you are in between scheduled maintenances, you may notice signs that the brakes may need attention soon. Some of the signs can be when you apply the brake pedal it is spongy. It can also be the opposite and be hard when you press on it. There might even be a loud noise or grinding that comes from the brake pedal when you apply it.

 

If you hear a squealing or grinding noise when you apply the brakes, it could mean that there is an issue that should be fixed as soon as possible. If this is ignored, you could be doing more damage and wear to the rotors, calipers, or wheel cylinders. You may also start to feel the brakes grabbing or pulling to one side or another.
