My Brakes Are Making Noises. Do I Need New Brakes?” The piercing, high-pitched squeal of defective brakes. When you hear it next to you from another car, it’s annoying. When you hear it from your own car, it’s scary. When is a little squealing just a natural mechanical sound of brakes doing their job, and when is it a sign of serious mechanical failure?
