It’s best to get a brake check before your Hyundai Santa Fe shows signs of brake troubles. 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 an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Hyundai Santa Fe best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Hyundai suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Santa Fe. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai's standards.
Your Hyundai Santa Fe 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. 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, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe brake repairs. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
