Have another question on the brakes, is there like a warning light that comes on if it needs brakes seems like there is a warning light for other stuff just curious.....
I no the low tire indicator comes on at 29lbs, guess this probably normal operations for the Trax ?...
We have 53000 and some miles on it, and it is coming up for a oil change n a couple weeks, and a tire rotation as well....so far no issues with the brakes, but will have them checked on tire rotation...

No lights for brake pad wear but there are screamers on the inside pads. These will start to screech when you need brake pads. I did over 100,000 kms before I did mine and could have gone an other 20k

I remember when Ford did that in the late-80's to early-90's, but in most cases it just simply illuminated the 'BRAKE' light when most people considered as the parking brake light. So it left technicians chasing down the wrong problem in the early days, especially since the system was known to fail and send a false signal.

A more accurate way to monitor your brake life is to check the fluid level. As long as it's in the safe range you have some life in the pads, but the lower the level gets indicates the farther the piston is pushed out the caliper body due to pad wear of the inner pad. .
