It’s best to get a brake check before your Kia Optima 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 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 tire repair or 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Kia Optima 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. Vehicle manufacturers like Kia generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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 ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2005 Kia Optima brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 2005 Kia Optima brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, 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 Optima. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Kia Optima brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Kia's standards.
Your Kia Optima 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, then it's 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, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 2005 Kia Optima brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
