It’s best to get a brake check before your Honda CR-V shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. 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 around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Honda CR-V 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. Generally speaking, automakers like Honda suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything?

When should you change the brake pads on your 1999 Honda CR-V? 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your CR-V. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Honda CR-V 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 Honda's standards.
