Stop in the name of safety! Our technicians are trained to perform 1997 Buick Park Avenue brake checks, services, and repairs. Schedule your appointment.
Getting your 1997 Park Avenue’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 Buick, 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Buick Park Avenue like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Buick 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. 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 1997 Buick Park Avenue brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1997 Buick Park Avenue’s brake pads? 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Park Avenue 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 Buick Park Avenues that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Park Avenue, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Buick’s specs.
Your Buick Park Avenue 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. 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 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 1997 Buick Park Avenue brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
