It's a good idea to have your 2011 Acura RL brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Acura RL best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Acura advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. 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 technicians will inspect your 2011 Acura RL brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2011 Acura RL? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your RL. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Acura RLs that comes with 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.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Acura RL. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 2011 Acura RL brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
