It’s best to get a brake check before your Audi S3 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 an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Audi S3 like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Audi advise that rear and front brakes are removed 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2018 Audi S3 brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Audi S3? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 S3 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 brake pad replacement for Audi S3s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your S3, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Audi’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Audi S3. 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’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. 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. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Get your 2018 Audi S3 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
