It's a good idea to have your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette 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 ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a tire repair or 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 burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Chevrolet Corvette like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Chevrolet advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1997 Chevrolet Corvette 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. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Corvette right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Chevrolet Corvette 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 Corvette, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Chevrolet’s specs.
Your Chevrolet Corvette engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their 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. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
