Q: My brakes are making noise

asked by on

My breaks make noise

My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

When brakes become noisey it can be due to the pads are worn out and the brake wear sensors are scraping on the rotors. The noise could also be due to material in the brake pads or rust on the rotors causing the noise. The brake noise should be inspected to see what is causing the problem and to see if there is any safety related issues with the brakes.
