Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet Caprices that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Caprice, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Chevrolet’s specs.
