It’s best to get a brake check before your Honda Odyssey 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 a battery replacement. 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Honda Odyssey better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Honda suggest that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. 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.

When should you change the brake pads on your 1998 Honda Odyssey? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Odyssey. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Honda Odyssey 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.
