Wayne's Auto Repair
There is probably nothing more serious when operating a vehicle than stepping on the brake pedal and having nothing happen. The probability of total brake failure is low. Do you want to take that chance? Do you want to wait until the brake pads are grinding the rotors? You would have to buy new rotors as well as have your brake pads and shoes replaced.

There is no magic bullet that can tell you how long to wait for a brake system inspection. It all depends on the way you drive and the conditions in which you drive. If you hear strange noises or believe your vehicle is not stopping quickly enough, it is time to get your brake system serviced.

Over time, your brake fluid becomes contaminated by moisture, dirt, and filings from metal components and needs to be replaced.
Brake Master Cylinder
The brake master cylinder holds brake fluid and displaces hydraulic pressure to the rest of the brake system.
Disc Brakes - Leaking Fluids
Brake fluid is essential for the brake system to operate properly. Leaks in the system release fluid, causing reduced (or even complete loss of) brake pressure. If you don't address the problem, your vehicle will eventually run out of brake fluid; however, chances are you won't get to that point, as the brakes won't continue to work after the fluid level drops beyond a certain level.
Disc Brakes - Warped Rotor
Brake rotors are an important part of a vehicle's braking system that, when warped or malfunctioning, can seriously reduce the efficiency of the braking system. Warped brake rotors typically cause several symptoms: pulsating brake pedal, vibrating steering wheel, brake noise, and brake pad failure.
Disc Brakes - Worn Pads
Disc brake pads usually have a piece of metal on them called a wear indicator. When enough of the friction material is worn away, the wear indicator will contact the disc and make a squealing sound. This means it is time for new brake pads. If you neglect your brake pads and shoes, your brakes will ultimately fail. Even before that happens, however, you can cause damage to other, more expensive brake parts, such as rotors, drums and calipers.
