  • Do you smell a burning odor?
  • Do you hear squeaking or grinding? 
  • Does the brake pedal shudder when you press it? 
  • Does your steering wheel shake or vibrate? 
  • Does your car pull to one side?

  • Can you see rusting or peeling from your brakes?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, it is imperative to schedule a brake inspection immediately.
