Getting your 2013 Q5’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. 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 tire repair or 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Audi Q5 best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. 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. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 2013 Audi Q5 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 2013 Audi Q5 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Q5. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Audi Q5 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get 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.
Your Audi Q5 may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. 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! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 2013 Audi Q5 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
