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 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Kia Optima better than anyone else. 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 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. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2007 Kia Optima brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 2007 Kia Optima brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Optima. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Kia Optima 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 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. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. 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 2007 Kia Optima brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
