Getting your 2005 Corvette’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Corvette like the back of your hand. 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 disassembled 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2005 Chevrolet Corvette brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 2005 Chevrolet Corvette’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. 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 Corvette right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet Corvettes that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Corvette, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Chevrolet’s standards.
Your Chevrolet Corvette may be powered by a strong engine. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. 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. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2005 Chevrolet Corvette brake repairs. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
