It’s best to get a brake check before your Audi 90 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 Audi, like an oil change. 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Audi 90 better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Audi suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.
