It’s best to get a brake check before your Honda Civic 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 request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Honda, 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Honda Civic 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 Honda generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2006 Honda Civic brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 2006 Honda Civic brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Civic right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Honda Civics that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Civic, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Honda’s standards.
Your Honda Civic may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. 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. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. 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. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2006 Honda Civic. We offer many affordable brake repairs like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
