6. Check Your Brakes

It should go without saying that the rest of your car doesn’t matter much if the brakes don’t work well. If you suspect there’s an issue, go to a brake repair shop and let them have a look.

Here are some signs to look for:

  • Your brake pedal is soft and mushy or hard and resistant
  • You see a warning light on your dash
  • You hear scraping and grinding noises
