It’s best to get a brake check before your Chevrolet Malibu shows signs of brake troubles. 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 battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet Malibu best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. 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 also includes checking the e-brake. 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 expert technicians are happy to examine your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu? 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. 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 Malibu 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 Chevrolet Malibu brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Malibu, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Chevrolet’s standards.
Your Chevrolet Malibu engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
