There are a few common problems with brakes that you can avoid by taking your car in to get a checkup. If you have an older vehicle, it’s important to maintain your car and have your brakes checked twice per year. For newer vehicles, your brakes likely won’t have any problems for the first five years depending on how you drive. For those who constantly press down on the pedal, your brake pads may go faster.

If you notice that your brakes make a screeching sound when you press on the pedal, then your pads may be completely worn down. These can quickly be replaced and return your brakes to normal. However, vibrations when you brake, especially with the steering wheel, may need immediate repairs. You could be causing more damage driving on bad brakes if your car shakes at all when you brake. This may be caused by warped rotors.
