It might seem like common sense, but many drivers don’t give the brakes on their vehicles a second thought, even though they are obviously the most important of safety equipment on any vehicle.
The braking system is by its very nature complex and should be checked by an expert every 10,000 miles or at least once a year, and of course, at the start of the winter.
Be aware when you are driving of how the car feels when you apply the brakes
If the brake pedal feels soft or goes almost to the floor before engaging, the system should be checked. It could mean the brake-fluid level is low or leaking
Shaking or vibration in the pedal or steering wheel may indicate that the brake discs are in need of replacement or resurfacing
Squealing indicates that the pads are wearing thin
Grinding or metal-on-metal can be a sign of serious problems. If this continues you need to replace your brake discs and well as your pads
To check the handbrake is in good working order pull it while you’re on an incline. If it takes more than a few clicks before the car is secure the callipers/drums need to be professionally checked
