It’s best to get a brake check before your Kia Sephia shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. 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. 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the 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 Sephia 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 rear and front brakes are removed 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local 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 1997 Kia Sephia brakes. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 1997 Kia Sephia brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 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. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Sephia 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 brake pad replacement for Kia Sephias 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 Kia's standards.
Your Kia Sephia engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, 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 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. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1997 Kia Sephia brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
