Getting your 2017 Santa Fe’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Hyundai Santa Fe best. 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 Hyundai advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed 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. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Santa Fe. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Hyundai Santa Fes that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Santa Fe, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass 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 stop it, it’s as good as 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. 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 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
