Getting your 1997 Elantra’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, 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 burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Hyundai Elantra best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Hyundai 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1997 Hyundai Elantra brakes. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 1997 Hyundai Elantra brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Elantra. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Hyundai Elantra brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Elantra, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Hyundai’s standards.
Your Hyundai Elantra engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1997 Hyundai Elantra brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
