If your brakes squeal and squeak, or if you hear metal-to-metal grinding noises, you are past due for a check-up for your brakes. Other signs can include longer stopping distances and longer pedal travel before you feel braking force.
If you have not had your brakes replaced in over two years, you should have your brakes checked at every oil change or every six months. Brakes wear out gradually, so detection of a malfunction by feel or sound can be difficult.
