Getting your 1997 A6’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Audi A6 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 months or 12,000 miles. 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 1997 Audi A6 brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1997 Audi A6’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your A6. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Audi A6 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your A6, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Audi’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Audi A6. 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. 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, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1997 Audi A6. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
