Getting your 1989 Legend’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Acura Legend like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Acura suggest that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1989 Acura Legend brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1989 Acura Legend brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Legend right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Acura Legend brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Acura's standards.
Your Acura Legend engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1989 Acura Legend brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
