I agreed. When the sensor goes off, it usually mean the brake pads are worn. If you see 3-4K miles left on the brake services, it means they need to flush the brake fluid. The brake fluids is also used for the manual clutch. I have 29,800 miles on my car and I just had my brake fluid flushed. My brake pads and rotors are fine. No squeaking sounds yet (knock on wood). You can check the rotor for wear by running your finger near the edge (yellow double arrows) to see if there is a grove there. If you can hardly feel a grove, your rotor is fine. Only touch the rotor when it is cool (not right after you been driving). Bring your car in for the squeaking sound.
