Something wrong with my brake!

I did not drive my 2010 mustang for 1 month.
And when I was driving it on local today, I found the brake was not sensitive.
It is terrible if I can not stop my car when needed.
Will the brake be better if I drive several miles?
Or I need to repair it?
Thank you!

If your skill sets are not comfortable with diagnosis and repair of brakes, then get them checked by a dealership service center or brake shop.

I would not recommend driving a car "for a few miles" with bad brakes, in hopes that they will correct themselves. It only takes one time for them to fail and cause you (and someone else) an accident and/or bodily harm.

Try this

First: Do NOT go out on a busy highway. Go to a non-busy side street or better yet, A nice empty parking lot.

If your rotors were wet when you parked the car they probably rusted up,

You need to do a lot of braking at low speeds to try to get that rust off of the rotors and pads. Not hard breaking but just normal stopping. ( You do not want to heat up the rotors)If this don't work do as they say: Go to the dealer or a reputable brake shop.
