How Often Do Your GMC G3500 Brakes Need Service

It’s best to get a brake check before your GMC G3500 shows signs of brake troubles. 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. 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, 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 GMC G3500 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. Vehicle manufacturers like GMC generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed 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. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection.

GMC G3500 Brake Pad Replacement

How often should you change your 1983 GMC G3500’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may 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 G3500 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get GMC G3500 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your G3500, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed GMC’s specs.
