In terms of vehicle safety, brakes are among the most important systems you need to maintain. If you hear grinding or squealing when you press your brake pedal, you should have them inspected immediately.
There may be something wrong with your brakes, which increases the braking distance and makes the vehicle less safe.
Here are some things to consider:
• Replace worn brake pads
• Swap or edit rotors
• Lubricate the caliper slides and other metal contact points
• Flush brake fluid
• Clean and adjust brake shoes and hardware
• Check brake wear sensor

Over time, some brake parts will wear out and need to be serviced or replaced. The brakes can be disc or drum brakes. Some vehicles have both. Disc brakes have a device that uses brake pads to hold the brake disc in place and slow down your car. The drum brake presses the shoe on the inside of the drum to stop you.
When bearings and shoes wear out, they need to be replaced and worn rotors may also need to be replaced. In some cases, the rotors can be machined to give them a new contact surface for the bearings.
In general, the front brakes wear out faster. The weight of the vehicle is shifted forward as it slows down, putting more pressure on the front brakes. Honda and Volkswagen are a few exceptions. The brake distribution was changed on this vehicle to shorten the braking distance by distributing the brakes more evenly between the front and rear of the vehicle.
