It’s best to get a brake check before your Acura TL shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Acura, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right.

Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Acura TLs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your TL, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Acura’s specs.
