It's a good idea to have your 1991 Alfa Romeo 164 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Alfa Romeo, like a tire repair or an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, 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 Alfa Romeo 164 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Alfa Romeo suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1991 Alfa Romeo 164 brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1991 Alfa Romeo 164 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 164. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Alfa Romeo 164 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 Alfa Romeo's standards.
Your Alfa Romeo 164 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 notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 1991 Alfa Romeo 164 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
