It’s best to get a brake check before your Honda Fit 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. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Honda Fit 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 12,000 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2017 Honda Fit brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 2017 Honda Fit brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 Fit. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Honda Fit brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Honda's standards.
Your Honda Fit engine may be strong and reliable. 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 is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, 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 2017 Honda Fit. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
