It's a good idea to have your 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier 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 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. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Cavalier like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Chevrolet generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-brake. 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.

How often do 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 Cavalier. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet Cavaliers that comes with 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.
Your Chevrolet Cavalier may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as 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. 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 this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier.
