It's a good idea to have your 1986 GMC C3500 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your GMC C3500 better than anyone else. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like GMC suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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 ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1986 GMC C3500 brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1986 GMC C3500’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. 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 C3500 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC C3500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your C3500, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed GMC’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your GMC C3500. 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’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. 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, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Get your 1986 GMC C3500 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
