Replacing Your Buick Century’s Brake Pads

When should you change the brake pads on your 1997 Buick Century? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Buick Century brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.

Buick Century Brake Repair

You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Buick  Century. 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. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. 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, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs.
