It’s best to get a brake check before your Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Jeep, like a tire repair or an oil change. 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Jeep Grand Cherokee like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like Jeep suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything?

When should you change the brake pads on your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. 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? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Jeep Grand Cherokees that comes with 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 strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! 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 example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Get your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
