Getting your 1988 Accord’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 request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Honda Accord like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Honda suggest 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. When in doubt, visit 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 ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1988 Honda Accord brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1988 Honda Accord’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Accord. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Honda Accords that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Accord, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Honda’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Honda Accord. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be 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. 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, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1988 Honda Accord brake repairs.
