Without the brakes on your car, you would not be able to stop the vehicle. There are several things that can go wrong with your brake system, and it is important to know what to look for before the brakes fail completely.
If you notice your brake pedal going to the floor when you depress it, then you might be low on fluid.
Also, brake pads that are heavily worn often squeal as you apply the brakes. A squealing noise could also indicate dirt in the rotor. If the pads have recently been replaced, then they might squeal until they have adjusted to the rotors.
In rare cases, there could be an issue with the brake line. One issue could be, a small hole in the line or the line could have somehow gotten cut. If this happens, the fluid will leak from the line, and you will not have brakes.
