It’s best to get a brake check before your Chevrolet Caprice shows signs of brake troubles. 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 ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a tire repair or 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Caprice better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Chevrolet suggest that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1984 Chevrolet Caprice brakes. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1984 Chevrolet Caprice? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 Caprice right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Chevrolet Caprice brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get 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 Chevrolet's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Chevrolet Caprice. 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. 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 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 prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1984 Chevrolet Caprice brake repairs.
