It’s best to get a brake check before your Alfa Romeo Giulia 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 Alfa Romeo, like a battery replacement. 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Alfa Romeo Giulia better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Alfa Romeo generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking 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 expert technicians are happy to examine your 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. 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. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Giulia 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 brake pad replacement for Alfa Romeo Giulias 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 Alfa Romeo's standards.
Your Alfa Romeo Giulia may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia brake repairs.
