Your braking system will give early alerts and warning signals if you need brake service. These alerts can be audible or felt in the vibration of the steering wheel or brake pedal. The most common warning sign of a brake service need is the high-pitched squeal when the brake pads have worn down too low. If this goes unnoticed if can lead to a metal on metal contact which will cause a loud grinding noise. This means your brake pads have completely worn away and you are in danger of damaging your rotors. Damaged rotors are an expensive and avoidable repair. Lastly, if your brakes feel spongy or unresponsive you may have air or a leak in your brake line, low brake fluid can also attribute to this.
Some drivers keep their stereos turned up loud, or may be running the air conditioner with the windows rolled up; doing this will not allow you to hear the warning signals. Brake noise can sometimes be hard to identify from inside the car, but other drivers and pedestrians will definitely notice. It’s a good idea to drive with your windows rolled down occasionally with the air and radio off, because this will allow you to hear any strange or odd noises.
