Getting your 1995 C3500’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird 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. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like GMC suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks.

How often should you change your 1995 GMC C3500’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your C3500. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get GMC C3500 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed GMC's standards.
Your GMC C3500 may be powered by a strong engine. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help prevent that damage from happening.
