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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Ford C-Max like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well.

How often should you change your 2018 Ford C-Max’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 C-Max 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 Ford C-Maxs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your C-Max, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Ford’s standards.
