It’s best to get a brake check before your Chevrolet Blazer 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 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Chevrolet Blazer best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Chevrolet generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking 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 Blazer. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet Blazers that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Blazer, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Chevrolet’s specs.
Your Chevrolet Blazer 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 stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1987 Chevrolet Blazer brake repairs.
