It’s best to get a brake check before your Buick Century 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 request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Buick, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, 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 Buick Century best. 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 Buick suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1984 Buick Century brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1984 Buick Century’s brake pads? 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. 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 Century. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Buick Centurys that comes with 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 Buick's standards.
Your Buick Century engine may be strong and reliable. 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. 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, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1984 Buick Century.
