We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Cavalier best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Chevrolet advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

How often should you change your 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Cavalier. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Chevrolet Cavalier brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Cavalier, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Chevrolet’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Chevrolet Cavalier. 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. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts.
