Getting your 2010 Acadia’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.

If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your GMC Acadia best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like GMC advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local 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 2010 GMC Acadia brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 2010 GMC Acadia’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. 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 Acadia 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 GMC Acadia 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 GMC's standards.
