It’s best to get a brake check before your Honda Civic shows signs of brake troubles. 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. 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 a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Honda Civic like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Honda advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking 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 technicians will inspect your 1996 Honda Civic brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1996 Honda Civic? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, 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 Civic. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Honda Civic brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Civic, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Honda’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Honda Civic. 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. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1996 Honda Civic. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
