It's a good idea to have your 1996 Acura TL 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 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. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Acura TL like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Acura generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 1996 Acura TL brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1996 Acura TL brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 TL right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Acura TL 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.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Acura TL. 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’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts.
