It’s best to get a brake check before your BMW 335i xDrive shows signs of brake troubles. 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 ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a tire repair or 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, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your BMW 335i xDrive like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like BMW suggest that rear and front 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. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection.

How often should you change your 2012 BMW 335i xDrive’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 335i xDrive. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get BMW 335i xDrive 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 BMW's standards.
Your BMW 335i xDrive may be powered by a strong engine. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2012 BMW 335i xDrive brake repairs.
