It’s best to get a brake check before your Chevrolet Colorado shows signs of brake troubles. 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Chevrolet, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Chevrolet Colorado like the back of your hand. 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 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. Not sure if something’s wrong?

How often should you change your 2020 Chevrolet Colorado’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Colorado right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet Colorados 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.

Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills.
