Brakes are a normal wear item for any car. Eventually, they’re going to need to be replaced for both performance and safety reasons.
Don’t let your brakes get to the “metal-to-metal” point, requiring more expensive rotor or drum replacement.
Your owner’s manual might specify periodic flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system. Contaminated brake fluid can lead to corrosion and other problems in the hydraulic system, especially on cars with anti-lock brakes (ABS).
