Metallic squeal noise
If you noticed a high-pitched noise that stops while you applied brakes, probably this sign is an indication of brake pad wear. Since the brake pads are made of steel and make the sound when encounters rotor.
Soft brake pedal
If the brake pads become too much softer and descend all the way to the floor when you applied brake- it’s an indication of immediate service. The reason for softer brake pedal is problems with the master cylinder or there could be moisture or air in the braking system.
Brake light on

The excessively soft brake pedal can be a sign of fluid leakage in the master cylinder. Master cylinder has a reservoir that contains brake oil and is the unit that creates power for your brakes. If you experience a soft brake pedal, have your mechanic to look for fluid leakage in the master cylinder or somewhere else in the brake system.
Burning smell while driving
