It’s best to get a brake check before your Chevrolet Caprice shows signs of brake troubles. 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 Chevrolet, like an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Caprice best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Chevrolet suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed 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 technicians will inspect your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1985 Chevrolet Caprice brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Caprice. 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.
