It's a good idea to have your 2014 Audi Q5 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Audi Q5 better than anyone else. 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 removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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 expert technicians are happy to examine your 2014 Audi Q5 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2014 Audi Q5 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Q5. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Audi Q5s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Q5, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Audi’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Audi Q5. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. 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. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 2014 Audi Q5 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
