It’s best to get a brake check before your Audi RS5 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 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Audi RS5 better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! 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. 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 RS5 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2013 Audi RS5 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. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 RS5. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Audi RS5 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your RS5, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Audi’s standards.
Your Audi RS5 engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be 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. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 2013 Audi RS5 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
