In an ideal world, your brakes would last forever. Unfortunately, your brakes are like any car part, and they'll eventually wear down with time and use. You can help prevent significant repairs by keeping up with your car manufacturer's maintenance schedule. However, even then, you never know when you might have problems. Because your brakes are so important, knowing when there's a problem can save you from more expensive repairs down the line.
One of the most common problems you might experience is a grinding or squealing noise when you apply the brakes. This occurs when the brake pads wear down and the pad wear indicator presses against the rotor, causing the metal-on-metal sound. Another problem is if the brake pedal feels "squishy" or otherwise sinks to the floor. The master cylinder contains brake fluid, which is needed for your car's hydraulic system to function. If the master cylinder leaks, this can cause the pedal to lose its pressure. You should also bring your vehicle in if your brake warning light comes on. In many cases, the light is on because the emergency brake is active, but if that's not the case, you'll need to have it checked by professionals.
