It's a good idea to have your 1998 Buick Riviera brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. 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 an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Buick Riviera like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Buick generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1998 Buick Riviera brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1998 Buick Riviera’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Riviera. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Buick Rivieras that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Riviera, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Buick’s standards.
Your Buick Riviera 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. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. 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. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1998 Buick Riviera. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
