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.

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.

You know your Acura TLX best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Acura suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2016 Acura TLX? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your TLX right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Acura TLX brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your TLX, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Acura’s standards.
