It's a good idea to have your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Chevrolet Cavalier like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Chevrolet generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 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 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. 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 engine may be strong and reliable. 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 notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
