It's a good idea to have your 1984 Audi 5000 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Audi 5000 better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Audi advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1984 Audi 5000 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 1984 Audi 5000 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. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, 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 5000 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. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Audi 5000s 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 Audi's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Audi 5000. 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! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1984 Audi 5000. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
