It's a good idea to have your 1985 Dodge Diplomat brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 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 burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Dodge Diplomat better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Dodge generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear 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. 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 technicians will inspect your 1985 Dodge Diplomat brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1985 Dodge Diplomat brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 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 Diplomat 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 Dodge Diplomats that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Diplomat, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Dodge’s standards.
Your Dodge Diplomat 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, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1985 Dodge Diplomat brake repairs. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
