It's a good idea to have your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Jeep, like an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Jeep advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. 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. 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 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Grand Cherokee right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 Jeep's standards.
Your Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 stop it, then it's 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 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
