It’s best to get a brake check before your Hyundai Tucson shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Hyundai Tucson better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Hyundai advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking brake. 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 2012 Hyundai Tucson brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 2012 Hyundai Tucson’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 Tucson 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 Tucson 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 Tucson, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Hyundai’s standards.
Your Hyundai Tucson may be powered by a strong engine. 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. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 2012 Hyundai Tucson brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer many affordable brake repairs like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
