When should you change the brake pads on your 2001 Hyundai Accent? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Accent right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Hyundai Accent brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Accent, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Hyundai’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Hyundai Accent. 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 brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2001 Hyundai Accent brake repairs.
