All power is useless without stopping power. Make a brake service appointment today and let our expert technicians take care of your 1983 Honda Prelude.
It’s best to get a brake check before your Honda Prelude 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 inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Honda Prelude like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. In general, manufacturers like Honda advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1983 Honda Prelude brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1983 Honda Prelude’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 Prelude. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Honda Prelude brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Prelude, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Honda’s standards.
Your Honda Prelude engine may be strong and reliable. One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can't stop it, then it's 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. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 1983 Honda Prelude brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer many affordable brake repairs like pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
