You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a battery replacement. 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Dodge Caravan like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well.

How often do 1988 Dodge Caravan brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Caravan. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Dodge Caravan 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 Dodge's standards.
