Getting your 1985 Cavalier’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Cavalier better than anyone else. 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.

How often do 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Cavalier. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Chevrolet Cavalier brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Cavalier, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Chevrolet’s standards.
