Highway miles, about 500
City miles, not enough

My advice is to buy new pads all around from auto zone and install them yourself, it's an easy fix and a heck of a lot cheaper than going to a shop.

You don't want that loud grinding noise, it will damage out your rotors. I recommend to get your brake pads replaced asap.

If I'm your Pax and I hear your Breaks grinding or squealing, I'd ask you to stop the trip (if you can) and let me out.
I'd also 1-Star you and report your sorry @ss to the Uber Gods.
GET THEM FIXED.
:mad:


Don't listen to this guy.
**Pax will feel bad that ur brakes are making noises but still driving and trying to make some money so u will get some sympathizing and 5stars and more tips than regular...
Happened to me...

deadmile , what do your Break Sensors telling you?
You should have a yellow or red blinking light in your Dash telling you that the pads are worn past the sensor?
Unless you drive a 1957 Chevy Nomad.

You dont need new brakes, just remove all the wheels and coat each rotor with a healthy swath of axle grease.
Wala....no more squeaking

Squeaking isn't a problem; grinding noise would be.

Squeak normal. Brand new brake linings can squeak.

Grind bad. A little grind, resurface rotors or drums, long time grind, NEW rotors or drums.

I get my brakes done cheap, pads or shoes, at a "Llantas Usadas" shop near me.

How many miles you got on them? Prius/ hybrid brakes last a long time. I got 85000 on mine and I go down a lot of hills. 2011 prius.

I don't remember how much pads and rotors are but they're pretty inexpensive for a Prius. They do last a looong time.
