It’s best to get a brake check before your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron shows signs of brake troubles. 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 Audi, 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, 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 A3 Sportback e-tron like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Audi advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-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. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron’s brake pads? 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your A3 Sportback e-tron right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Audi A3 Sportback e-tron brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Audi's standards.
Your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron 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 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. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron brake repairs.
