You should always make sure your brakes are in good shape as your life depends on them at all times. Worn brake shoes and pads can lead to dangerous brake response time. This could result in total brake failure and very expensive repairs. Pay attention to the warning signs your car gives you: brake squealing, screeching, and grinding.
Other things to be on the look out for include:
