Perform brake maintenance on a regular basis for problem free brakes. Periodically apply force to the pedal because many problems appear under pressure. Inspect the tires and ground where you park your vehicle for signs of fluid leakage. Visually inspect brake pads for wear and tear replacing them as needed. Check the rotors by feeling the inside for uneven spots. If damage is present, service the rotors by having them turned, which involves taking them to a shop that grinds them to smooth finish again.
Pay attention to the way your car stops, because there are many signs indicative of a problem. A squeaking or grinding noise indicates wearing brake pads and a vibration or washboard effect may mean the rotors need turned. Pulling to the side or a grabbing sensation indicates one brake is wearing more than the other one. Early service and maintenance saves a lot of money, but brake repair is imperative for safety reasons.
