Getting your 2016 Optima’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 Kia, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual 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 the feeling that something is "off." You know your Kia Optima like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Kia suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. 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. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2016 Kia Optima brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2016 Kia Optima? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Optima right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. 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 some of our most popular services. For your Optima, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Kia’s specs.
Your Kia Optima 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, it’s as good as 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, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 2016 Kia Optima brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
